- It’s hard to catch a salmon. In most cases... But not always.
Not in Skellefteå and not while you’re down town.
The urban fishing in Skellefteå is by natural reasons very accessible. A few minutes stroll from the city square takes you to great fishing and beautiful enviorment in the areas of the local gems Nordanå and Bonnstan (church town). Spring and autumn is the best time for city salmon and sea-trout fishing. As the temperature drops the big fishes becomes aggressive and more willingly to take a properly fished lure or fly. Normal size is from 70 cm - 100 cm for salmon, although every season fishes above 120 cm are caught.
