Straumsfjorden is a lake that is located along the border of the municipalities of Bygland and Valle in Aust-Agder county, Norway. The lake has a dam on the south end which discharges into the Hjellevatn lake and eventually travels to the lake Topsæ and the Tovdalselva river drainage basin.[1]

Artifacts dating back to the Iron Age have been found along the lake.
