Ståggtjønnin and the connecting lakes is a place that immediately comes to mind when ”those in the know” start thinking about fat trout.  Several connected lakes lie in the shadow of Blåfjella-Skjækerfjella national park, just above the tree line in towards skjækerfjella. Trout are the only species found here, and the average trout is nothing to complain about. Fish over 1 kg are quite common here.


Ståggåtjønnin is one of the finest offerings in the Snåsa area for fly-fishing in Stillwater. A typical mountain trout lake, in Ståggåtjønnin you can look forward to spending plenty of time with a fish on the end of your line. This lake is relatively shallow with a relatively small population of large average sized fish, so fishermen that wish to continue to enjoy the fishing here should keep fish in moderation, or better yet, practice catch and release.


Even though the lake is shallow, there are many shelves and drop offs that make the fishing here very exciting. Waders can be nice to have, but are not necessary as most of the lake is fishable from land.

The current that connects the lakes together is very good fishing, expecially with nymphs and streamers. The deeper pockets in the running water portions between the lakes can also be very productive during certain times of the year. Ståggåtjønnin is located in a place which makes it ideal for the start and finish of a longer round trip into the inner portions of Skjækerfjella.



The easiest access is from Roktdalsvegen with parking available for a small fee up at Hevdesåsen, which makes for a 5 km trip in the summer.
