You must hold a valid fishing permit to fish for freshwater fish on lakes and rivers. There are no national or regional permits in Sweden: every region has its own local permits and rules.
For fishing tourists, a personal valid local permit is all you need, there's no requirement for a national approval or license.
Usually, the fishing guides in Stockholm include the fishing license in the price of the trip. They also know the local regulations, which licenses you need for which body of water and bag limits.
Some waters are closed at least during May when the fish are spawning, in order to protect the stocks.
