Sport Fishing Region

English1Our national river, the Vindel river, runs through Kraddsele and is particularly beautiful and has excellent stocks of large trout’s and grayling’s.
The famous Ammarnäs trout swims here. A beautiful trout with an average weight around 3,7 kg. The Ammarnäs trout migrate from Storvindeln up to the Ammarnäs/Kraddsele area to spawn.
They are wild and aggressive, and ready to empty your reel. It truly is a fantastic experience to feel the power of an Ammarnäs trout!

Fly fishing’s Klondyke
In Kraddsele there are three stretches for fly fishing only.  Two of those stretches, Järnforsen & Övreforsen, are really good spots for both the Ammarnäs trout and grayling. Those stretches usually holds big fish and a good amount of fish. Järnforsen & Övreforsen has a permit limit of three (3) fishing permits a day, or a family/group permit. Those permit’s can be booked in advance on

In total there are 2,2 kilometers of the river that are reserved for fly fishing only.
The whole Kraddsele fishing stretch are 16 km long.

Sustainable fishing
Fishing regulations are there to ensure sustainability and govern the number of catches, minimum size, maximum weight and restricting the number of anglers. This will result in top notch fishing for future generations.
