Gimån

Herrevadströmmen

Hidden in the vast forests of Jämtland is the uppermost part of Gimån: Herrevadströmmen. It is an important spawning ground for trout and grayling. The currents harbour both stationary and moving trout. The largest known trout caught in Herrevadströmmen weighed 7.3 kg. In the recent years a number of large graylings, 50 + cm, has been caught.

Herrevadströmmen flows between large boulders and moss-covered rocks. The water is clean and clear.

Float tube fishing is available in a number of lakes, with equipment and float tubes for rent. Fishing for whitefish below the bridges is permitted from the end of October. You can hire nets and other equipment on location.
