Messingåga is a long river which flows northwards, ending up as a tributary to the river Ranelva at Hjartåsen in the small village of Storvoll in the Dunderlandsdal valley in the municipality of Rana in Nordland county, Norway. The river should not be confused with the nearby stream, also named Messingåga, which flows into the river Ranelva from the east, just north of the village of Dunderland.

The river is located in an untouched natural area, in one of the most important areas of wetland birds in Rana. It is very rich with Arctic char and trout, and has been proposed to be preserved both by environmental organizations and by the Norwegian parliament.
