Joeström fishing district

Show map

The flowing waters of the Jovattsån river give rise to large fish. Fly fishing enthusiasts will find this the perfect spot.


Joeström district stretches 15km along the Krutfjellsvägen route, which heads towards Hattfjelldal in Norway. It comprises Jovattsån river and the lakes Nedre Jovattnet and Västra Rödingträsk. The western boundary is next to Skälvattsbäcken stream. The boundary in the east adjoining Tärna district is where the river Jovattsån flows into Lake Västansjö. Jovattsån is long and sometimes quite deep, enabling large fish to move along the river. Sections of the bank contain marshland and bog. Nedre Jovattnet is a large lake with cabins, shelters and fishing spots prepared by the local fishing conservation group.

Winter fishing
Winter is one of the high points of the fishing calendar. Most fishermen use their snowmobiles to travel around but the terrain is so accessible that you can easily carry your ice drill and equipment and walk. The waters here are teeming with fish.

Trout, arctic char

Stocks of arctic char are added to existing populations.

Fishing licence can be bought in houses marked with a fish sign along the way in Joeström. You can also buy them at Hemavan Tärnaby tourism office and at Berglunds Järnia (the hardware store) in Hemavan.
