It’s not how many fish you catch – it’s how you catch them!
Fishing paradise

Hotagsbygden is a paradise for anglers. The district is by the famous Fishing Road – highway 340 – that runs between Krokom in Sweden and Namsos in Norway. The whole area has plentiful fishing stocks and most fishing waters can offer fine varieties of mountain fish such as char, salmon trout, grayling and whitefish. The area has attracted anglers from near and far for a very long time.

More than a century of tourists

As early as the end of the 19th century English noblemen could be seen elegantly casting their split cane fishing rods in the Toskströmmen and Rengströmmen rivers. Early mountain hikers discovered the many mountain tarns teeming with fish that lay near at hand and a few wealthy fishing tourists made their way to the district in the early years of the 20th century. Amongst these early visitors was the American newspaper journalist William H. Stoneman, the foreign affairs correspondent for the Chicago Daily News, and a man who despite having travelled the world found his own little paradise in Valsjöbyn. Mr Stoneman had three clear objectives when he left his Paris home for a holiday,
”I want to fish, I want be able to live without being crowded by people and I don’t want to be robbed.” Three wishes that you can still fulfil in the Hotagen district to this day.
