Small river in northerh Härjedalen. Tributary to river Ljusnan. Originates from lake Mittåsjön in the mountain regions north of Funäsdalen. On its "way" towards river Ljusnan it runs through Mittådalen valley, through the lakes of Messlingen and Grundsjön, and just west of Långå it flows out into the river Ljusnan. There are caught a great deal of big trout in lake Messlingen each year, fish weighing 8 kg have been caught here.

Populations of trout, grayling, whitefish, pike, char, perch.

Fishing in the river requires no heavy equipment. For fly fishing, a #5-6 rod is more than enough
