Early summer, when the evenings begin to draw out and the countryside takes on a green tinge, the time is ripe for drag fishing in the large Arctic char lakes. The brown trout are hungry after a long winter and you can still go ice-fishing in the highland lakes.

Height of summer with its light nights, the brown trout feasts on newly hatched mayflies, and the large perch in the forest lakes reward you by tugging floats. The brown trout, grayling and whitefish are on the move in the rivers and calm backwaters.

Late summer is the time for twilight fishing. Arctic char pick at gnat grubs as the sun sets, brown trout feed in the increasing darkness when the hatching of the dragonflies is at its most intense. Large whitefish are happy to take a dry fly or spinner, while pike and perch thrive during heat waves.

Autumn comes with sparkling colours and still days. Brown trout and Arctic char are protected during mating season but several streams and rivers are open for grayling fishing since the grayling are still happy to nibble at a dry fly. Whitefish, perch and pike are still biting.

Facts: You may have heard that Jämtland Härjedalen acknowledges more than four seasons of the year. All these seasons invite to various activities but only one is just as exciting on a warm summer day as on a cold winter morning, namely fishing.
