People over the age of 80 fish for free in our entire area EXCEPT Pägertjärn.
However, you must be able to identify yourself to a supervisor during a fishing license check.
If identification cannot be proven when fishing is in progress, the act is assessed as "illegal fishing".

Inspection fee:

The board has decided that the control fee is SEK 3,500 if someone is caught violating our local rules, for example exceeding the card quota of 2 noble fish/card or using more rods than 2 at the same time.

  • When the card quota of 2 fish is filled, fishing must be ended immediately, alternatively a new fishing license must be obtained before further fishing takes place.
    (However, this does not apply to premieres as only 1 card/person may be purchased on this day).
  • On the opening day, fishing must end when the card quota is filled with 2 noble fish/card.


Note :
From 1 January 2022, a bag limit / daily quota of 3 noble fish / day per person was introduced for Runnsjön, Stortjärn, Lilltjärn and Matlöpen.

This means that only 3 noble fish may be killed, then the fishing must end for the day.
It is therefore forbidden to continue fishing after the daily quota has been filled.
Noble fish = Trout, Trout.



Please note: The southern road from Lekvattnet to Runnsjön (the one that many GPS's refer to) is not passable and should not be used, it is a private forest road for tractors.

Go instead from Lekvattnet on road 939 towards Östmark, after 10.5 km there are signs for Runnsjön.
If you come from Östmark, drive 1.5 km south on road 939 towards Lekvattnet, where you turn in at the "Runnsjön" sign.
This dirt road is plowed in winter due to permanent residence.


Matlöpen : The road is not usually plowed to Matlöpen in winter. When there is a lot of snow, it is most easily reached by snowmobile.


In summer there is usually a boat to rent for SEK 150/day in Runnsjön.

This is broken and under repair and therefore cannot be rented yet.

You rent the boat in the following way:
Click on the "Fishing card" tab.
Look for "Boat hire Runnsjön" and click buy.

 In this area, there is one or more "put and take" waters.
 Free fishing for children and adolescents up to the age of 15.
 Valid only in certain waters or in certain places, see fishing rules / comment
 Everyone who fishes in Pägertjärn must have their own fishing license, regardless of age. Other water is free until the day you turn 16.

Lekvattnets FVOF

We are a non-profit fishing association that has our waters in a scenic environment in the "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 release Rainbow.

Every year we put out Trout, Trout and Rainbow with the permission of the county board.
None of the board members have any remuneration, but all the money we receive from fishing license sales goes directly to buying fish every year for stocking or other types of fisheries conservation measures.

We have 6 trained supervisors in the area.

In order to protect the trout during their spawning season and create better conditions for the reproduction of the species, there is a total fishing ban from September 1st to November 30th in the waters below.
The ban refers to all fishing in the following waters regardless of species:

  • Runnsjön.
  • Large iron.
  • Small iron.
  • Örsjön.
  • Hornetjärn.
  • Snip iron.
  • The light.
  • All our streams and rivers.

Trout caught during the prohibition period in waters other than above must be released again.

Respect this to benefit the trout population in our waters.
