This weekend the sun finally showed up with a chilly wind, but I still wanted to check out fishing in Lillsjön, a small lake/tarn (362 masl) up in the woods in Myckelgensjö area.
Must say I am really impressed how well my tiny microcar handled the last 7 km of shitty, muddy and icy gravel road, (someone had actually put up a big handwritten sign saying the road was totally crap and driven at your own risk ..ha..ha) but the very last 2 km on stony forest road I found it best to park the car and have a very nice hike up to Lillsjön lake.
The simple cabin by the lake have a wood-burning stove and is open for everyone to use, and you can even rent it overnight for a nice price. I think that is a great offer when it is really cold and you want to warm your ass a bit during a hike or fishing trip. Near the cabin there are to good wind sheds (in Norwegian we call it gapahuk) with benches, fire-place and firewood if you insist staying outdoors.
My puppy (I call her Jenta as in Jenta mi (“my girl” in my dialect)) enjoyed running and racing freely around the place, she really loves that and have a bunch of energy to use. Hopefully she didn’t eat any exiting “natural candy” from the woods that will show up as vomit back home.
We did not have too much time left as I wanted to get back to the car before dark – so my 1-hour fishing luck was nothing to brag about this time, but now I have tried it out and know the place for next time, perhaps the tracks around the lake would lead to a better fishing spot? Would be so nice to grill fresh fish by the gapahuk someday…yummy…
