Lysetjärn is one of three lakes (Lysetjärn, Stortjärn and Hagtjärn) that are included in Bengtsfors fishing club and they are beautifully situated, east of Bengtsfors between Lake Lelång and Svärdlång. You can reach the lake through the blue hiking trail from Majbergsdal, or by road. Two kilometers north of Bengtsfors, on the road 172, you find a sign showing the way.
The fishing club rents the three waters Lysetjärn, Stortjärn and Hagtjärn. Game fish are planted regularly in all the lakes. Hagtjärn also has over the years become a great lake for very large perch. It is not unusual to catch perch over a kilo ! We want to mention that all anglers (young and old) need to buy fishing licenses and respect the rules that we have. In an effort to make the license checks easier, a plastic pouch is delivered with the Fishing license, and it must be visibly worn by the angler. This applies to both members, and those that buy daily / weekly cards. Officers will check frequently. Please call one of our inspectors if you think something would not be entitled. The telephone number is on the notice board, and on the club's contact page.
The lake contains a fine stock of trout. We set out both small trout, to grow , and larger fish. Also steelhead are deployed in various sizes. The lake also contains a strain of self-reproducing trout. A path leads around the lake, so it's very easy to find the different fishing spots. At the lake's southern end you find our club house, that may be freely used by members and those who have day / weekly cards. Please use the cottage with respect, and leave it in the condition you wish to find it yourself....

Special opening times and regulations apply for winter fishing. See further details of the club's website.
