The village name Fällfors occurs on the largest rivers in Västerbotten. The places are located by larger rapids and falls (trap = fall) where hiking fi so-called salmon and sea trout are difficult to pass. Here, it has long been the case that it is mainly salmon, but also trout, ie sea trout.

The pioneers of the event in Fällfors were "Bjärtenmannen" and "Mjösjömannen". These were the first two property owners in the area and they took advantage of the good fishing opportunities for salmon in the fall. The fishing was done with a type of salmon net.

From the middle of the 19th century, it was mainly Fällfors village that operated in the case. A man named Albert Lundberg observed during fl ottleds work in the river, how the salmon jumped in the fall. He konstrued then a unique fi cutting tool, the first skhopp box. The box was hung out right in front of the case where the salmon got stuck when they tried to jump up the steep case. The fishing was efficient and at most three jump boxes hung at Fällforsfallet. Fällfors village fi damaged with two drawers and Mjösjö village with the third.

The fishing season lasted from the week before midsummer to Olofdagen on July 29, when the salmon stopped jumping in the fall. The catches during one season varied, but during the best years almost a hundred salmon were caught in these jump boxes.

In the early 1950s 1TP4 The second type of cutting tool used in Fällfors was threatened. Konstractors were Kalle Lundberg and Kurt Strandberg, both from Mjösjö. The implement was a slax mine which, with the help of a crane arm, was lowered into the main stream channel below the case. The catch mine is konstrued kid-like a cage and the salmon was caught as it wandered up towards the fall.

At the same time as the construction of the salmon mine, however, salmon fishing outside the mouth of the Lögde River became increasingly intensive. The number of cutters increased markedly and the tools became more efficient. This resulted in fewer salmon succeeding in migrating up the river and only a few salmon were seen in Fällforsfallet. The poor supply of salmon meant that everything happened in the mid-1950s.

Since 1992, Sweden's first salmon tunnel has been in Fällfors. It is designed as a rock tunnel next to the case of skulper stairs, and thanks to it, the salmon can migrate another ten miles upstream of the river, which benefits reproduction.

At Fällforsfallet there are windbreaks on both sides of the river.
