Stensele’s renowned pike fishing aside, Lake Storuman has an abundance of fish. Try for grayling, arctic charr, rainbow trout and large whitefish. If you want a smaller lake, choose from: Avasund Fishing Camp, Gunnarbäcken, Långvattsbäcken downstream from Grotjaur and Juktån. (Click on each to see where you can purchase a fishing permit). Most are located within 30 km from Storuman, and some are just a few hundred metres from the railway station.
The local fishing district has built a stone ramp on a section of the river to provide easy access for all.
A great spot for fly-fishing, there is also a wind shelter. Out of Storuman, drive towards Vilhelmina on the E45 and turn off at the large rest area just before you come to a bridge over the river. Follow the river channel downstream until you reach the ramp.
