The Bure River is a forest river that begins in the area south of Bastuträsk. During its 70 kilometres, the Bure River flows through several large and beautiful fishing lakes, such as Burträsket, Hjoggböleträsket, Mjövattsträsket, Falmarksträsket and Bodaträsket.

The most common species for sport fishing in the area are pike, pike perch, perch, trout, grayling and bream. The Bure River also has stocks of crayfish. There are not many or very long stretches of river in the Bure River. Several rapids are equipped with hydroelectric power stations that regulate the flow of water. The Bure River is thus a regulated river. The best stretches for stream fishing are in the lower parts of the river. From Lake Bursjön to the estuary. The varied character of the Bure River provides many fine opportunities for sport fishing and outdoor recreation on the lake, river and sea.

Lake Bursjön to Strömsholm

The lakes of the Bure river have a very rare inhabitant in our cold latitudes, the pike. This stock is one of the most northerly in Sweden. By boat you can reach places in Lake Bursjön where the mythical and sometimes elusive pike hides. The Linnaeus Trail follows the river up to Lake Bursjön and on towards Lake Holmsjön. Along the way you will pass fine fishing spots for trout, perch and pike. The floating bridge that crosses the river at the outlet of Lake Bursjön offers the opportunity to fish from both sides. On the southern shore of Holmsjön there is a bird tower.
