Lake Harsjøen has a large population of pike and rich waters teeming with whitefish. Harsjøen is a mountain lake located in the Østerdalen valley at 677 meters above sea level, on the mountain ridge between Øvre Rendal village and Hanestad in Rendalen.  There is easy access via road 664. 

 

The lake is about 4km long and there is a place to launch a boat at the north end of the lake. There is easy access via road 664. The lake has a large population of mountain whitefish that is fished for professionally, and a large population of pike. The lake is managed for preserving pike and pike angling. All pike over 60 cm must be released.

 

As the name suggests – “Harr”, the Norwegian for grayling, and “sjøen”, meaning lake. You can also catch grayling of nice size, and there are smaller populations of perch and trout. The license is only valid in the lake, which is the landowner association area.
