Fishing permit

Are you an avid fly fisherman or do you want to fish for perch in central Skellefteå? There's a wide variety of fishing here - but first make sure you read up on the rules and buy a fishing licence where required.

A fishing licence is a temporary authorisation for a limited period of time and each fisherman must therefore be able to present the fishing licence together with a valid identity document. Fishing licences are purchased by local fisheries management areas, either digitally or directly from the association that coordinates fishing and carries out fisheries management. Click on the map to find the right fisheries management area and buy a fishing licence. You can also contact the Skellefteå Tourist Centre if you need help buying a fishing licence.
