Fishing in the middle of Sweden


Lillbo is a membership-based fishing establishment in the heart of Sweden. It is situated in an area of peaceful natural beauty in the municipality of Ovanåker in the province of Hälsingland. You will stay in Lillbostugan, a comfortable cottage on the shore of the virginal Lake Långrösten – a lake that contains everything the sportfisherman might wish for.

Excellent shallow spin fishing areas with steep drop-offs boast healthy populations of zander, pike and perch. Several welcoming bays, an island and wide reed belts provide ideal spots for casting. The lake is also suitable for belly-boat fishing. Just one minute’s walk from the cottage is the marina, where the boats lie waiting for you – boats that are 4 metres long with 5 hp motor, electric motor and sonar.

FIM fishing guide Benny Backeby is highly experienced and thoroughly familiar with Långrösten and other lakes nearby in this area, both for flyfishing and spinfishing for pikes, verticalfishing for zanders and jigging for perch. On your first fishing day he will take you out for a 4-hour guided intro tour. During this guided tour you will have your fishinglicense, access to a good map and tips about good fishing spots, suitable bait and fishing methods, and where in the lake you will need to be especially careful to drive your boat fast.

On Lake Långrösten you will be left to fish in solitude. The fishing pressure is very low. Here, you will definitely be the first to cast your line after just that pike, go vertical fishing for just that zander, or jig for just that perch.

The lake is approximately 10 km long and approximately 500-600 metres wide. The Lillbostugan cottage is at the midpoint of this long lake, so there is around 5 km of water to explore in either direction. The cottage is also only 30-40 metres back from the edge of the lake, so you can sit on the veranda and enjoy the lovely scenery. Make yourself a coffee or a meal and just relax after a day of fishing. Listen to the silence, as we say in Sweden.

The Lillbostugan cottage can accommodate up to five people, in three bedrooms. It includes a spacious kitchen with a view of the lake, a WC with shower, and a living room.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We hope to see you soon.

We look forward to welcoming you to Lillbo!
