The beautiful stream Alsterån floats through Smålands green and deep forests, a fishing
idyll right in the heart of the Kingdom of Crystal (Glasriket) in Småland.
15 km of the stream is part of the area called Strömfiske Alsterån, where a large
part stretches through unsettled wilderness. Here is an original strain of brown
trout which is strengthened by yearly release of chosen local strains of high quality.
Our part of the stream varies from wild flowing sections, at times places that are
difficult to reach, through wild nature to slow flowing areas with dams and in a
couple of places there are landing stages available.
The stream is divided into fishing areas, suitable for well qualified fly fishing
but also in a couple of areas naturally offering more easy accessible fishing.
Strömfiske Alsterån offers a great fishing experience for the pure fly fisher as
well as spin fishing.
Strömfiske Alsterån has the ambition to be one of Swedens premier fishing areas for
The guests are welcome to stay at Vidinge Gård guesthouse, situated a few km north
of the stream, where we are also running the Fishing centre (Fiskecenter). At Vidinge
Gård there is also the possibility to enjoy good, homecooked food, with the speciality
of lamb from own breading and game specialities from local hunters.
The natural population of brown trout in the stream is supported through conservation
of nature and new spawning areas.
In some part of the stream there is also pike, perch, bream, tench and roach as well
as signal crayfish.
Brown trout fishing
The fishing season starts beginning of April and and stretches until the end of September.
Throughout the whole area, brown trout is only allowed C&R (Catch & Release). All
trout must be handled as gently as possible and be returned to the water. Pike and
