Note: The southern road from Lekvattnet to Runnsjön (the one that many GPSs refer to) is not passable and should not be used, it is an unpaved forest road for tractors.
Instead, go from Lekvattnet on road 939 towards Östmark, after 10.5 km it is signposted to Runnsjön.
If you come from Östmark, you drive 1.5 km south on road 939 towards Lekvattnet where you turn in.
This gravel road is plowed in winter due to permanent housing
In summer, there is a boat for rent for SEK 100 / day in Runnsjön.
You rent the boat as follows:

We are a non-profit fisheries conservation association that has our waters in a scenic environment on "Finnskogen" next to the Norwegian border in Torsby municipality.
Our most popular fishing waters (in no particular order) are Pägertjärn, Rottnaälven, Runnsjön, Stortjärn, Matlöpen.
Pägertjärn is a so-called. (Put & take) water where we regularly put out Rainbow.
Every year we release Char, Trout and Rainbow with permission from the County Administrative Board.
None of the board members have any fees, but all the money we receive from fishing license sales goes in full to buy fish for release every year.
We have 6 trained supervisors in the area.
In order to protect the trout during their spawning season and create better conditions for the species' reproduction, fishing is prohibited from 1 September to 30 November in the following waters:
Trout caught during the prohibition period in waters other than above shall be re-released.
Respect this to benefit the trout stock in our waters.
Group fishing license:
Larger groups, companies, school classes, fishing associations or the like can buy a group fishing license at a favorable price for a day to Pägertjärn or another of our fishing waters
