Fish here
Fishing in and around Storuman is great all year round. There are over 2,400 lakes in Storuman Municipality and main Umeälven river, with its great variety of habitats, provides opportunities for excellent fishing and outdoor pursuits. There is something for everyone, whether you are an experienced angler or a group requiring assistance.

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.

River Umeälven

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.

Excitement awaits
