The river Åby is a 165km long forest river. As a forest river, it has its entire catchment area in the forest land and is thus not affected by the snow melt in the mountain range.
The river Åby starts its run in the municipality of Arvidsjaur. The lower stretches are steeper than any other northern river and offer a large number of nice streams and rapids.
Here is a completely unique self-reproducing salmon strain which, by Swedish measurements, is quite strong. Although no releases have been made, the density of smolts is one of the best in the north. In 1996, a salmon staircase was built at Hednäs power station, which allows the salmon to reach fine play bottoms and growing places directly above the station. The main migration takes place during the latter part of June, to decrease in July.
The Åby River flows through an area of forest and wetland. In addition to salmon, there are stocks of sea trout and grayling in the river. Pike, perch and whitefish are common species in the lakes in the catchment area. Otter and beaver can be seen in the river system and in one of the tributaries one can find populations of river mussel. You can also find many rare plant species along the river, as well as our landscape flower, King Charles's Spira.
