Stora Lulevatten ("Big Lule Lake") is a lake in the province of Norrbotten County in northern Sweden , through which the river Stora Luleälven flows. It has a maximum width of 6 and a length of about 40 kilometers.

The body of water is the largest of a series of 15 reservoirs along the river that were built to generate electricity .
