Fishing and angling

Good angling spots along the coast with beautiful trouts waiting to bite.

In the Sønderborg area you will find many wonderful fishing lakes and waters, where you will have the chance to catch your dinner. Read our online folder on fishing.

All anglers from the age of 18 to 64 must own a current fishing licence - whether you are fishing by the coast, see or connecting waters. The fishing license can be bought at the tourist office, at many camping sites (see the entire list here) and online www.fisketegn.dk.

Some lakes and fishing parks do not require the fishing licence, but a fishing card issued for the specific location. The prices of the fishing licence is (in the year 2017) DKK 40,- for a daily licence, DKK 130,- for a weekly licence and DKK 185,- for a year. If you choose to fish without a licence you will risk being fined.

The beaches are public area. Neither individuals or unions can therefore seize an entire beach or a larger area. Be respectful towards over anglers and keep your distance.

Be considerate towards the nature and do not litter. Respect private properties and the rules for minimum length and closed seasons. Protected or fish below minimum length must be released immediately when caught, whether they are alive, damaged or dead.

You also have the possibility to come on a fishing trip with a guide.
