Arjeplog is a fishing paradise for the whole family with various fishing from angling and jig fishing for perch to pike adventure among all our lakes and watercourses. There has been caught a pike over 16kg which you can read more about on a link at the bottom of the page.
The weather could not be better with the water like a mirror when we went out with the boat on Uddjaure from the docks in Skeut. The sun did shine from a clear blue sky and the backpack was packed with both sandwich and coffee thermos so the fishing itself felt less important than a nice day on the lake.
Could not resist so had to put on my home made crankbaits on the ultra light rods and try our luck for a while and immediately we started to get perch after perch with hard fighting white fish between.
Is there anything more relaxing than the calm ripple of waves with nice sandwich and a cup of coffee on "own" islet?
We had to start releasing most of the fish and just keep some for smoking after a while.
ABU smoker got in good use and smoked perch is delicious.
Stora sjöarna "The Great Lakes" are very well known for big pike even though today's catch "only" was 4.4kg.

The saying "A photo says more than a thousand words" is something we try to keep on VisitArjeplog because we want you as a visitor see what it really looks like around Arjeplog. The page is under construction, but we'll post more tips as time goes by.
