About the fishing cabin

Welcome to our paradise at Lake Sommen for your holiday. This place has been in our family for 120 years.

The house is a modern, rustic timber house with a guest house that includes a sauna and a whirlpool.

The house has two bedrooms: one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. The living room features a large fireplace, a 55" Smart TV with WiFi, satellite channels, and a surround sound system. The kitchen/dining area contains a large Contura fireplace and a sofa bed for two people. The kitchen is equipped with an induction cooker, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, coffee maker, and kettle.

The sauna is outfitted with both a wood-burning stove and an electric one. From the sauna, there's a beautiful view over the lake. The sauna house also includes a separate shower and toilet, a relaxation room with relax chairs, a beer refrigerator, and a sofa bed for two people.

On the large wooden deck, there's a whirlpool for 6 people, always heated to 39 degrees.

There are also two deck chairs with a small table for your umbrella drink (or beer). You can enjoy your dinner at the outdoor wooden table, having prepared your meal on the grill.

The deck provides access to a rowing boat with a 5 HP motor. For larger groups who enjoy fishing, it's possible to arrange for a second rowing boat with a 4 HP motor.

About the fishing

Sommen offers great opportunities for sport fishermen to pursue their hobby. The varied characteristics of the lake and the broad range of fish species make for diverse fishing, regardless of whether it is carried out from shore, by boat, or on the ice.

Lake Sommen is home to 22 types of fish, including notable protected species such as lake char and anadromous salmon trout. Sommen's unique attributes, such as its narrow bays, shallow inlets, large pelagic areas, great depths, and different nutrient statuses in the eastern and western basins, provide space for a plethora of fish species (i.e., many potential niches). However, Sommen is low in nutrients, which explains why it does not contain an especially large number of carp species.

Sport fishing can yield good results from the shore or near the shore in spring and early summer. Angling with worms and bleak, and spin fishing with a jig in shallow areas during these periods can lead to good catches of perch. If you're seeking pike, try large jigs or long, narrow wobblers in green or blue. Pike are close to the shore during this period and can be found 1-12 m above deep areas. Bottom angling with worms during evening hours and at night provides an opportunity to catch eel, roach, perch, bream, and tench in shallow inlets.

As water temperatures rise during early summer, most fish species head for deeper water, making a boat necessary. An effective fishing method for pike at this time is drift fishing or trolling at a level of 10-20 m over the lake's deep areas. This type of fishing can sometimes also result in catches of salmon trout or char. Evening or night fishing with this method at a level of 5-12 m can yield large pike and sometimes pike-perch in the western part of the lake. During this period, perch can be caught by jigging from a boat in detached shallows or at drop-offs at a level of 10-20 m.

Winter fishing on Sommen is popular. Jigging for Norwegian perch at depths of 10 m to 20 m can be quite successful periodically on new ice on the entire lake. In the eastern part of the lake, there is a possibility of catching char by jigging. When the ice is covered with snow, the western part of the lake is recommended as there is a population of perch there close to shore at a level of 3-6 m. Extreme caution is advised when it comes to Sommen's ice; it is never entirely safe throughout the lake.

Children and adolescents up to the age of 15 can fish for free.

    Caught some pike and perch

    It is a great place with direct access to lake Sommen. We went for a fishing trip and caught some pike and perch. The house offers everything one needs. Pool and sauna have to be added as extra. Would recommend the place and also come back again in the future
