Hotagsbygden is a paradise for anglers. The district is by the famous Fishing Road – highway 340 – that runs between Krokom in Sweden and Namsos in Norway.

The whole area has plentiful fishing stocks and most fishing waters can offer fine varieties of mountain fish such as char, salmon trout, grayling and whitefish. The area has attracted anglers from near and far for a very long time.

As early as the end of the 19th century English noblemen could be seen elegantly casting their split cane fishing rods in the Toskströmmen and Rengströmmen rivers. Early mountain hikers discovered the many mountain tarns teeming with fish that lay near at hand and a few wealthy fishing tourists made their way to the district in the early years of the 20th century. Amongst these early visitors was the American newspaper journalist William H. Stoneman, the foreign affairs correspondent for the Chicago Daily News, and a man who despite having travelled the world found his own little paradise in Valsjöbyn. Mr Stoneman had three clear objectives when he left his Paris home for a holiday,
”I want to fish, I want be able to live without being crowded by people and I don’t want to be robbed.” Three wishes that you can still fulfil in the Hotagen district to this day.

More than 100 salmon trout and char fishing waters are summarized in one fishing license. You only need one permit – the “Hotagenkortet” fishing license! Anglers can choose between lakes, tarns, rivers and winding woodland streams in the Hotagen area. Everyone from amateurs to the most ambitious fly fisherman can find their favourite spot. Many of the fishing sites have windbreaks and barbecue areas. Children and teenagers under 18 can fish for free. The Hotagen license covers a fishing area with a total water surface of around 6000 hectares.

130 km of fishing between Krokom and the Norwegian border. Fiskevägenkortet is a collaboration between seven fishing administration areas along Fiskevägen, the road which runs between Krokom and the Norwegian border. There is fishing in rivers, streams, creeks, ponds and lakes – all in one license. You can enjoy all kinds of fishing from bait fishing to fly fishing and you can get all kinds of catches trout, char, pike, perch, grayling and whitefish. You’ll find everything from fine big trout water to water with nice populations of perch and whitefish.
