Information & fishing rules 2020

Account & information

Because we handle your payments, you must create an account to be able to book and report catches. Update your information so that we can get hold of you if something goes wrong.

Booking & payment

To fish on the special routes and rent a boat, you must book and pay directly here at vindelriverfishing.se - We use Payson as a secure payment portal

Catch reporting

Under the heading Fishing, you report your catches and see what others have caught. Catch reporting helps us in our fisheries conservation work!

At vindelriverfishing.se we handle your bookings, payments and catch reporting. To be able to separate our guests, you need an account. We can use your account to manage your bookings & payments. When you report catches, you have the opportunity to store map positions that only you can see and we know that it is you and no other Mr Smith who has reported.

Once you have filled in the information, click on 'Create account' and an email will be sent to the address you have entered. Click on the link in the email to activate your account. Now you're up and running.
There are a number of different companies in Ammarnäs and Kraddsele that provide you with service. In addition to our retailers listed on the front page, holiday villages and other businesses can provide you with information on the current situation. For questions about special stretches and boats, you should always contact one of our dealers who has the greatest knowledge of fishing and current conditions.

When you book a stretch or boat, your booking is placed in the shopping cart at the top right of the page. When you have made all your bookings, go to the checkout. Check that your bookings have been correct, select the retailer and then click on the pay button. You will now be transferred to Payson, which is a completely secure payment portal, where you can pay for your bookings with Visa/Mastercard or make a direct payment from one of the major Swedish banks. When the payment is complete, you will be moved back to vindelriverfishing.se where you can see your paid bookings under 'My account'.
When you book a special route or boat, you pick up your cards at the retailer you chose when you made the payment. The dealer gives you your fishing licenses and information about the exact waters you are going to fish in. You can thus not print your fishing licenses yourself on vindelriverfishing.se, but if you do not want paper licenses, the dealer can send electronic cards to your e-mail address.
When you book at vindelriverfishing.se, your bookings are placed in the shopping cart. Then you have until midnight the next day to pay. If you do not pay, the bookings will be deleted again and posted for everyone to book. If you book close to a fishing day, you must pay for your bookings immediately. Information about this is clearly visible on the screen and in the shopping cart.

Each area/stretch has its own calendar where you can see which days are free and busy. Click on the day you want to book to get to the booking detail. Green indicates that there are no bookings on the current day. Yellow shows that there are bookings but cards left on the day. Red indicates that the day is fully booked.
When you have clicked on a day, you will come to the booking page. Click on the number of cards you want to buy on the current day. Your booking is now added to the shopping cart and you are moved back to the calendar where you can book more days. Do not forget that you have to pay for your cards so that the bookings are not canceled and become available for anyone to book.
When you go to the Checkout, you will see all your bookings. You can cancel bookings that you do not want, see the last payment date or time and start the actual payment. If you have booked a card at both Ammarnäs and Kraddsele, you will have to pay twice as the money will go to different FCA, fisheries conservation areas. Once you have made the first payment, you will return to the Checkout where you can pay the remaining bookings.
When you book at vindelriverfishing.se, your bookings are placed in the shopping cart. Then you have until midnight the next day to pay. If you do not pay, the bookings will be deleted again and posted for everyone to book. If you book close to a fishing day, you must pay for your bookings immediately. Information about this is clearly visible on the screen and in the shopping cart.
Four tickets are sold to Sjöforsen per day and it is the person who books first who also has access to the boat. If you book the entire route, you can be a group that fishes, but there can never be more than six people fishing at the same time.
It is possible to pre-book eight (8) cards at Ammarnäs Nedre per day. Two (2) extra cards are released at midnight the day before fishing here on vindelriverfishing.se so you have the opportunity to fish even if one day is fully booked early in the year. Each fisherman can book a maximum of four (4) cards per day.
Not available 2021
You can move a booking on a route to another day provided there are free days. It is only possible to change the day within the same stretch/boat and you must do so no later than two days before your fishing. If it is a stretch without a boat (or just a boat), the fishing is simply moved. If, for example, you have booked two days in Sjöforsen by boat and move this booking to a day where there is already a booking, you will lose the right to the boat. In the same way, you can move your bookings to an unbooked day and instead get the right to the boat. It is only possible to move the entire booking with all cards at once. My pages - Move booking

vindelriverfishing.se has three different pins that we send out to the guests who catch big fish. Golden grayling is awarded for grayling that are 55cm or longer. Silver trout applies to fish of 75-79 cm and Gold trout is awarded for trout that are at least 80 cm.

To get a pin, you must report your fish with a picture before September 20th. You must also update your account with a valid post address. If the requirements are not met, there will also be no pin. The rules are strict but fair, no exceptions are made.

With the report and address in place, one or more pins will arrive in your postbox at the turn of the month September-October. vindelriverfishing.se covers all costs so you just need to sit back and take it easy.

Our pins are of high quality with soft enamel and protective epoxy as well as a Tie Tac mount that does not come loose. You should be able to wear your pins on the fishing vest without being afraid that they will get lost or destroyed.

You can catch report on vindelriverfishing.se in peace and quiet after your fishing. If you enter the map position on your report, you can see where you caught your fish later. Only you can see the map position, so you do not have to worry about revealing your special places. See also under 'Mobile reporting' further down this page.
Here you can see all the reports that have been received. You can select different criteria or search the database freely.
Under 'My catch reports' you see the fish you have reported and you can also upload a picture, change the map position or write a comment afterwards. If you need to change other things in your catch report, you can contact the respective fisheries conservation area.
Here we concentrate on Ammarnäsöringen, but you can also choose a water to see statistics on other species. Feel free to print out the page with estimated weights. The weights are adapted to the size of the fish in our area and give quite good weights according to the length. Do not lift the fish out of the water if you can avoid it!
We have a mobile site that is specially adapted for mobile phones so that you can report directly out at the riverbank. Click on the button and a personal link will be sent to your e-mail. When you then open the page in your phone, your name is already filled in. Feel free to save the page as an icon on your home screen so it is even faster to report.
