Between Växjö and Kalmar, in the middle of Småland in Glasriket/Kingdom of Crystal, you will find Strömfiske Alsterån, a river stretch of approximately 15km.
Here you will find the real wilderness feeling with a scenic brown trout fishing in streaming water without crowding.
The fishing water is diverse and varies from fast flowing water to calmer parts.
The character is reminiscent of a nice little river in northern Sweden - Norrland, partly fairly easily accessible and partly through more difficult terrain. Alsterån is a perfect start to the trout season where there is a good opportunity to lure a trout already in April, maybe even on dryfly.
The fishing season runs from the beginning of April until October. During the high summer, the fishing can be less good or even blocked due to water temperature and level.
In the middle of May, there is a good chance to meet the hatching of the large may flies.
The weekends in May are the only times we possibly stop selling cards.
It should never feel cramped on our stretch along the Alsterån.

We who manage Strömfiske Alsterån also run Vidinge Gård, where we sell fishing licenses and the most important fishing pick. Here, our fishing guests have comfortable accommodation close to the river in rooms or apartments, food and drinks on the outdoor terrace after finishing fishing or in the cozy pub. For those who want, we are happy to arrange a packed lunch to take and grill yourself at one of the shelters along the river.
Feel free to check with us at Vidinge Gård before you come here. Especially if you plan to come during the summer or a weekend in May. Guests staying at Vidinge Gård are always entitled to purchase a fishing license during their stay, as long as the river is open for fishing.
We also offer boat fishing in the surrounding lakes, perfect for the family or group who want to split between lake and trout fishing in the Alsterån.
