Västerås offers city centre fishing in the Svartån River. If you have a fishing permit, you can fish between the Mälarbron and Vallbybron bridges. The river is stocked with rainbow trout during April, May, June and August and there are also pike, perch, zander and whitefish.

Fishing permits are personal and must be presented together with ID upon the request of controllers.
