Address: Umeälven Umeå

Simpler it cannot be. From the quayside in Umeå city centre you have unrestricted access to good angling. There is the prospect of catching e.g. grayling, common whitefish, ide, roach, pike and perch i.e. most of the great river’s stock.

Incidentally, unrestricted fishing applies for the whole stretch downstream from the old bridge in Umeå (Brogatan). Upstream towards Norrfors, on the other hand, the river is divided into several conservation areas where a fishing permit is required. Closest to hand are the Böle Islets (Bölesholmarna) that have several picnic areas and places for fishing. Further upstream there are several good fly fishing areas.
