- River Ammerån -
River in Jämtland, Sweden. Originates from Lake Fyrsjön in the north and flows out into the River Indalsälven at the south near the village Ammer. Located approx. 70km east of Östersund. River Ammerån were undergoing a stream renewal program in 1990-1991. River Ammerån run through limestone grounds which can explain how the river is fairly unaffected by acid downfall. The river has a very rich insect fauna.
Populations of Brown trout, grayling...
You can also fish in Lake Öravattnet, for trout, char, and perch. Lake Laxsjön is another alternative with fishing for large pike and white fish (Sik in Swedish).
In the early season it is recommended when flyfishing to fish with imitations of green free living caddi larvae.
Dry fly season usually begins in
the first half of July and and last until late fall.
The lower par of river Ammerån is big and mighty with great possibilities for catching big grayling. The best beat for flyfishing is the 17 km long stretch down stream the calm stretch at Överammer. The upper part (from lake Solbergvattnet and downstream) consists of a big number of rapid streams for example Språnghällan, Skyttmoforsen Höghällan. Big trout and big grayling. The rapids is easy accessible through small forest roads.
