Lake in  western Jämtland, in  Åre municipality. Located at 526 meter over sea level. The river Enan and river Handölan are Lake Ånnsjöns largest tributaries. These rivers has a joint outflow into the lake and form the river Handöls delta.

Note! Not the whole lake is accessible for fishing by buing the fishing permit. Some areas of the lake is restricted.

Fishing: Lake Ånnsjön can offer a very nice fishing, with a original population of trout and char. Around mid summer, when the insect larvae's are hatching, the fishing is best. Also the fishing in August is good. Then the water is warmer and the fish is more movable. Suitable fishing equipment for the fishing in the mountain waters are a light spinn rod or a fly rod class 5-6 or 6-7. Minimum size for caught fish is 200 millimetres.

To catch the lake trout it is recommended to fish in the deep water on the lakes east and south areas. To catch a char a small rapalawobbler dragged by a surface going paravane can do the trick.
On the island Järpön there is a small tarn called Renattjärn, no fishing allowed. The tarn has a population of trout and char
