From an angler perspective, the course of the river Vindel is
split in two different biotopes. Upstream the Vindelforsen (the waterfall
in the picture above) where
the river is called Vindelän and only brown trout are present.
Downstream the waterfall, where it is named Vindelälven.
In this lower part there are brown trout, grayling and the mytical Ammarnäs trout.
