Hotagsbygden is a fishing paradise for anglers. The district is situated by the famous Fishing Road – highway 340 – that runs between Krokom in Sweden and Namsos in Norway. The whole area has plentiful fishing stocks and most fishing waters can offer fine varieties of mountain fish such as char, salmon trout, grayling and whitefish. The area has attracted anglers from near and far for a very long time.
Within the Gunnarvattnet fishing administration area we have only native fish stocks which have adapted naturally to their environment – in other words no fish have been introduced to the area. You can fish for salmon trout and char in the lakes in the wilderness landscape near to the beautiful Hotagen mountains. Why not try your luck with the large trout and whitefish in the lakes Rörsjön and Gunnarvattnet.
Valsjöbyn on Fiskevägen has a wide range of fishing experiences on offer and the area extends from Stor-Foskvattnet in the east to Rengen in the west. Since January 2004, the Hotagen-Flinten area has been part of the Valsjön fishing administration area, bringing the total number of lakes to around 60. The largest lakes are Valsjön, Rengen, Stor-Foskvattnet and parts of Hotagen. There are also several other large lakes. The area can also offer river fishing for example in the Toskströmmen and above the Rengsfallet waterfall.
This area is a little paradise for family fishing. You can find exciting and challenging fishing for all ages and fishing waters are often easily accessible. The road to Stensjön means that even mountain fishing is easy to reach. Our waters have mainly salmon trout and char and you can choose between the mountains or the forest as an inspirational backdrop to your fishing and other activities.
The Hotagen card is a unique cooperation that began in 1998 between the four northernmost fishing areas in the Krokom municipality. Everyone from amateurs to the most discriminating angler can find an idyllic place to fish. There are wind breaks and barbecue areas by many of the fishing places that you reach by following narrow paths.
