LykkeSø is a cozy family lake located close to Ølgod. As of January 1, 2022, LykkeSø took over all operations from the former Ølgod Put and Take, which had previously operated the lake for many years. LykkeSø opened for the first time in the summer of 2022, after a major renovation of fishing spots and general optimization of fishing facilities.
The lake is up to 6.5 meters deep and consists of fresh spring water, which is fed by a natural stream that also ensures that the water level is always the same.
Unfortunately, in March 2023, we were forced to close the trout fishing due to parking challenges, leaving only the possibility of carp fishing afterwards.
Carp fishing is therefore the only thing we offer going forward.


LykkeSø offers beautiful and attractive fishing spots with tables and benches. Unfortunately, there is no running water or toilet facilities. At the southern end of the lake, you’ll find our shelter with a fire pit and barbecue grill, which are free to use. Around the lake you’ll also find benches with rod holders mounted on them. In collaboration with Trygfonden, lifewests have been set up.
