Övre Ransarån


It’s an 18 kilometre trekk along the river Ransarån from Tjåkkelestugorna to the lake Ransarn. This stretch of water has three allocated areas for fly fishing and a public area closest to the lake. The waters are mainly populated by trout, but there can also be char as far up as Skibbleselet. With plenty of calm waters, streams, waterfalls and crystal clear waters, one has to ask oneself if there area ny more beautiful mountain waters than these to go fly fishing in? Large trout fishes are spotted annually, some of which weigh up to three kilograms.

Allocated waters: From the suspension bridge up to Tjåkkelestugan. Fishing permits can only be purchased at Fiskecentrum Saxnäs.

The allocated waters are divided into three zones:
