The stream Alsterån floats through Smålands green and deep forests, a fishing idyl
right in the heart of the Kingdom of Crystal (Glasriket) in Småland.
15 km of the stream is part of the area called Strömfiske Alsterån, where a large
part stretches through unsettled wilderness. Here is an original strain of brown
trout which is strenghtend by yearly release of chosen local strains of high quality.
This part of the stream varies from wild flowing sections, at times difficultly reached
places, through wild nature to slow flowing areas with dams and in a couple of places
landing stages along the slower areas.
The stream is divided into fishing areas, suitable for well qualified fly fishing
but also naturally in a couple of areas offering more easy accessible fishing.
Strömfiske Alsterån offers a great fishing experience for the pure fly fisher as
well as spin fishing.
Strömfiske Alsterån has the ambition to be one of Swedens premier fishing areas for

of the stream, where we are also running the Fishing centre (Fiskecenter). At Vidinge
Gård there is also the possibility to enjoy good, homecooked food, with the speciality
of lamb from own breading and game specialities from local hunters.
The natural population of brown trout in the stream is supported through conservation
of nature and new spawning areas.
In some part of the stream there is also pike, perch, bream, tench and roach as well
as signal crayfish.
Brown trout fishing
The fishing season starts beginning of April and and stretches until the end of September.
In the streaming part of the water, streamers are recommended during spring and autumn,
and dry flies during the summer. In the slow flowing areas spinner can work well.
Along the area there are several places with toilets, barbecue areas and wind shelters,
where staying over night is also allowed.
For fishing of crayfish, please contact Vidinge Gård.
