Classic Salmon Fishing in the Town Centre
Angling goes on in the centre of town along
a two kilometre stretch of the lower course of Ätran, which here
empties into the Kattegatt Sea.
The early opening of the fishing season, normally between March 31 and April 1, is a yearly spectacle drawing the attention of anglers and bystanders alike.
At this time the game is sea-trout. Later in April/May the larger fresh run salmon is the main attraction. By mid-June the pursuit is for the smaller salmon, the grilse, which enters the river at this time. Spinning as well as flyfishing is permitted.
The town of Falkenberg, located at the mouth of the river, is easily reached by car on European Route E6/E20, or by train on the west coast route Västkustbanan. Falkenberg is halfway between Helsingborg to the south and Gothenburg to the north, a distance of 100 km in either direction. Frequent ferries on the waterways provide a link to the European continent and enter several ports in Sweden.
