Saxnäs offers fishing for everyone at a comfortable distance from the Fishing Centre at Kultsjögården. Those interested in running water can choose between many river and creeks and there are lots of small lakes and tarns scattered in the Stekenjokk mountain area or in the Njakafjäll woods. We offer packages in limited fishing waters such as river Ransarån and Upper Fiskonbäcken Creek, both with tent living. Trout and char dominate the Marså and Kultsjöå rivers and in the latter there is grayling. While here you live comfortably in our self-catering cabins or in flats or rooms at our hostel.
The Fishing Centre is open all year. The fishing is seasonably defined with char best fished in winter and summer; trout is fished in summer and autumn until the fishing is stopped in running waters.
Species & Records
The Lower Ransarå River offers fly-fishing for char reaching 3 kg and in the crystal-clear water upper part of the river trout of the same size rise to the hook. Other area waters offer excellent grayling fishing, while the forest lakes have superb pike stocks.
There is a range of fly-fishing products in our Kultsjögården shop that includes rods, reels, lines, flies, waders and other fishing and outdoor items. You can buy your fishing and hunting licences here, as well as hiring a boat or fishing equipment. We offer professional fishing guiding together with the day’s best tips and information about fishing in the various waters in the area.
Equipment & tactics
The area surrounding Saxnäs boasts a wide choice of running and still waters in different sizes, both in the hills and in the lower reaches.
- Fly-fishing: 8-9 ft rods in the 4, 5 or 6 line classes fitted with floating line and sink leader for high water and lake fishing. Nylon 9-12 ft leaders and 0.15-0.20 mm tippet material
- Spin-fishing: UL-rod with 5-12 g casting weight, thin braided line, small spinners, spoons and wobblers.

Fishing in running water is generally prohibited Sept 15 through Oct 15, as is lake fishing from August 20 through Sept 20. Minimum size for salmonid fish is 40 cm and a 1 fish limit / fisherman is in force. Some waters are exclusively C & R. The catch-limited Ransarå River and Fiskonbäcken Creek are exclusively fly-fishing waters. For the sake of the future – be careful with both nature and fish.
