Welcome to Lekvattnet if you are hungry for fishing.

Updated: 2021-12-30.


Note : From 1 January 2022, a bag limit / fish quota of 3 precious fish / day and person will be introduced.

This means that only 3 precious fish may be caught, then the fishing must end for the day.

This applies to the following lakes:

Runnsjön, Stortjärn, Lilltjärn and Matlöpen.

Precious fish = Char, Trout and Rainbow.



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 a (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 at the sign "Runnsjön".
This gravel road is plowed in winter due to permanent housing.


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

You rent the boat as follows:
Click on the "Fishing license" tab.
Find "Boat rental Runnsjön" and click on 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.

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 every year for release or other type of fish 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 species' reproduction, there is a total fishing ban from 1 September to 30 November in the waters below.
The ban refers to all fishing in the following waters, regardless of species:

  • Runnsjön.
  • Big iron.
  • Lilltjärn.
  • Örsjön.
  • Horntjärn.
  • Sniptjärn.
  • Sandsjöarna.
  • The lights.
  • All our streams and rivers.

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.
