Lake Ramsbytjärn lies to the west of Lake Lelång near the border between Dalsland and Värmland provinces on the road between Bengtsfors and Lennarsfors. This lake differs somewhat from the other ones in the area. Primarily it’s shallower and the area surrounding it is dominated by an agricultural landscape. Thus it is more eutrophic than the average creating excellent conditions for a whole number of whitefishes.

Lake Ramsbytjärn has an average depth at app. 3 m and lightly coloured water. The Kesnacksälven River runs through the lake from the south-western part and out again via the Tassbyälven River to the east. Not only is the fishing exciting here. There is also beaver in both the lake and the rivers. Since the Tassbyälven River is relatively short between Lake Ramsbytjärn and Lake Lelång, the fish can move easily from one to the other.
