The bye river flows into the municipality of Arvidsjaur, in the lake-rich forest and marshland north of Storavan and the mouths of Bottenviken at Byske in Skellefteå municipality. The highest coastline (your sea reached the highest during or after the last ice age) is passed approximately at Nyfors, one mile downstream of the Mooring. The bottom part, from Bjørsel til havet, falls about 38 meters in 11 kilometers.

Of the 3 662 km² of the catchment area are 2,792 km² (76%) in Norrbotten County and the rest in Västerbotten County.

As a source of flow, the Järfer river is counted, where the lakes Västra Järfojaur and Östra Järfojaur are found in the upper part. Järferälven flows through Västra Kikkejaure and opens in Arvidsjaursjön. There also the Långskilskälven (as above Langångsket is called Allejaurälven) and Svärdälven opens. Downstream Arvidsjaursjön are the most important tributaries counted alongstream is Kelisån (with the Great Lakes Pjesker and Gråträsket), Bäverån, Långträskån, Ålsån and Tværån.

Byskio means "the swelling" and refers to the cool variations in the watercourse that arise as a result of the low lake percentage below the source lakes.

In Långträskån there were 5 control ponds from Banfors to the power station in Myrheden. Today, all obstacles are gone.

In the Byske River, fleet was run until the 1960s. Smaller power stations have been found at Fällfors, Selet and Ytterstforsen, but they are now demolished. Nowadays there is a ban on hydroelectric development in the Byske River, according to Chapter 4. Section 6 of the Environmental Code.

The fisheries conservation area consists of just over 400 fishing right holders.

The task of the fisheries conservation area is to manage the fishing in the Byske River within the parishes of Byske and Jörn, Skellefteå municipality, Västerbotten county. The fisheries conservation area includes not only water linked to fishing rights holders regarding the Älven / älvdalen but also in the sea. Regarding the sea, the following according to the statutes: "In the sea within Byske parcel and within Furuskogen 2: 1, the fisheries conservation area is delimited by the border with general water".

The association shall provide fishing in the fisheries conservation area through the sale of fishing licenses to the public. Decisions on leasing may not contravene section 8 of the Fisheries Conservation Areas Act. The detailed terms are decided annually at the Annual General Meeting.

When the Byske River fishery conservation area, the Västerbotten part, was formed at the end of December 1989, this was a historic moment for fishing in this river. The fisheries conservation area became the largest of its kind in the country. The area extends from a good distance outside the mouth of the Byske River in Byskefjärden in the Gulf of Bothnia and up to the border with Norrbotten County - a river stretch of ten miles double shore.

Through the formation of this large fishing conservation area, the public is given the opportunity to fish on this entire stretch towards the release of a single fishing license.
