Arjeplog offers fishing opportunities for everyone, from perch fishing for children to fly-fishing for char and trout
Rolling heights, gnarly pines and block lands are characteristics of the area. In the nature conservation area Apmo, downstream from Skierfajaure, all these natural habitats are richly represented. Grayling is the characteristic fish in this area, as well as char that has received much publicity. The graylings in this part of the Pite river are best caught by fly-fishing or light spinning rods.
Thanks to the work of the Pite River economic association, a major environmental recovery project has been carried out with extensive log-driving restoration work along the entire river and in several of its tributaries. In addition, a number of migratory obstacles to fish have been eliminated. The fishing grounds are infinitely numerous and grayling can be found everywhere, as well as trout. Several nice tributaries with good fishing are found in the area, where Mattaure river and Arvesjåkkå are most famous. For most of the area, a contact with guide companies is necessary regarding accommodation, boat, etc.
Stora Sjöarnas (big lakes) fishing area comprises parts of the lakes Storavan, Uddjaure as well as Hornavan below the cultivation limit. Through fish conservation projects, the restoration of the log-driving rivers and the breeding of local trout, the tourism industry has grown in the region. For the fishing in the lakes, nine launch ramps have been built. The big fish-eating trout has always been an attraction in the maritime system. There is also a fantastic perch and pike fishing.

The trout fishing in Slagnäs Rapids, the Bergnäs river and the Arjeplog streams are famous among those who prefer fishing in flowing water. In Slagnäs and Bergnäsälven, the associations have adapted fishing management in order to achieve high-quality sports fishing. Accommodation and other services are well-developed in the area. Cottages are located in several places around the lakes and specifically at Slagnäs Camping along Inlandsbanan.
