Metresket:
The lake is a clear water lake with excellent water quality where the bottom consists of sand and gravel. There are also some areas with rougher rock bottoms. The fine depth of view means that Metträsket provides an opportunity for bird watching in winter. In summer, there are a number of boats for rent, including makes it possible to fish with "Långedrag", a fishing that can occasionally be very rewarding. Drag rowing with wobblers is another method, perhaps the one that gives them the greatest chance of coming into contact with the lake's big trout, fish of 2kg and more. The char can also be fooled with a wobbler and it even happens that the grayling bite. Even the fly fisherman has a lot to catch in the lake.
Fishing from the rental boats or floating ring is very nice and large parts of the lake provide space for fly fishing from land. Around midsummer, the lake sand dragonfly hatches and it is a festive moment for the dry fly fisherman when the rough trout take care of the large dragonflies which in some years can appear so abundantly that the dry fly finds it difficult to assert itself among all the real insects and then it happens that you run out of fish completely . There is a smaller cabin with a fireplace that is open to the public all year round. A driveway, which is plowed during the winter, is available up to the cottage.
A parking lot where it is also possible to set up a caravan is 100 meters above the cabin. the road between the car park and the cabin is closed with a barrier, but it is possible to borrow a key, if you have difficulty traveling on foot due to disability or injury. In addition, there is a disabled-friendly jetty below the cabin. The club's rental boats are also located there. There are two fireplaces at the cottage and a number more scattered around the lake. In addition, there are two wooden wind shelters. The fish stock in the lake is replenished annually. In the years 1983-1987, approx. 100,000 char fry were released into the lake.
The fish released today consists of trout, char and rainbow trout taken from the own fish farm, in addition to grayling in the form of fry or solitary. At the northern end of the lake, there are two artificial spawning beds that provide the opportunity for self-reproduction for the char.

Räktforsen is the latest addition to the club's fishing waters. Since the summer of 2003, the club has leased a roughly seven kilometer stretch along Kalixälven's west side of Sveaskog where the lower half is made up of the Räktforsen. The route consists of sections of rapids alternating with calm sections. It is above all a very good sea trout water, but some salmon are also caught there. In addition, there is greyhound in ordinary extent. Räktforsen is included in the regular annual fishing license, but a separate 24-hour license is required for the stretch. There is a larger cabin that is very beautiful at the southern end of Räktjärv, about a kilometer above the rapids next to Europaväg 10. It is not open to the public, but is available for rent from time to time.
