Welcome to Lekvattnet if you are keen on fishing.

Updated: 2022-09-01.


150 kg Rainbow is exposed in Pägertjärn.

Weight between about 6hg to 12hg + some between 4-5 kg.

Consider the new card quota, which from today 1st September 2022 is 2 noble fish on Pägertjärn.

The board has also 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.


Price adjustment fishing license Pägertjärn:

Given that prices are rising for everything, including the fish we buy, we have to keep up with developments.
This means we have to adjust our fishing license prices on our "Put & take water" Pägertjärn.
Currently and since many years ago, the fishing license at Pägertjärn has cost 100 kroner for 3 fish.
Instead of having to shut down the business, we now have to raise the card price.
We sent out a small customer survey to those of you who bought a fishing license at Pägertjärn with a few different options, and we received almost 100 responses to the email sent out, where you had to give your opinion on the license price and quota on fish.
41 made a new option that was not included in the survey.

In addition to this, we received a lot of valuable feedback from this survey, so many thanks to all of you who took the time to answer :-)

The following things emerged from the majority in the survey:

  • You wanted a smaller size of the Rainbow, between 6 hg to 15 hg.
  • Better with a higher number of smaller fish in a pond than really big ones which are not good food fish either.
  • Possibility to buy more fishing licenses / day.
  • Increase fishing supervision to curb "Illegal fishing".
  • Increase the price of fishing licenses so that the business can go together and continue.
  • 41 people thought SEK 200 / fishing license and a license quota of 2 fish.

With regard to this investigation, the board has determined the following news for Pägertjärn:

  • Day pass SEK 200, unlimited number of fishing license purchases / day. (Premiere days = 1 card / day & person).
  • Card quota of 2 fish / card.
  • New for families with children: Children up to 12 years of age can fish on their guardian's fishing license, (think of card quota).
  • This will take effect on September 1, 2022.
  • From January 1, we will charge a statutory control fee of SEK 3500 in case of violation of our local rules, (for example if someone takes more fish than the card quota of 2 fish).
  • When the card quota of 2 fish is filled, the fishing must be ended immediately or another fishing license must be acquired before further fishing takes place. (However, this does not apply to premieres).


Now the rental boat in Runnsjön is repaired and ready for rental.

It is located at the northern end of the lake and marked with "Lekvattnets fvof"
You rent the boat in the same way as you buy a fishing license.
Go to the fishing card tab and scroll down to "Boat hire Runnsjön".
The boat rental is SEK 150 and it is valid until midnight the same day.
The boat has new oars for the season, but you may bring your own motor (Long rig) if desired (Max 9.9 HP). Works very well with electric motor.

It is a double-bottomed boat of the brand Cresent of about 4 m.

Take care of the boat as you do with your own things:
If the boat is abused or damaged, the rental will end.

Moor it properly in the same place you took it.


Please note : From 1 January 2022, a bag limit / fish quota of 3 noble fish / day per person was introduced.

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.

This applies to the following lakes:

Runnsjön, Stortjärn, Lilltjärn and Matlöpen.

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 a boat to rent for SEK 150/day in Runnsjön.

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

Organization number: 802461-2718

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.

Fishing licenses are also sold at the following places:
