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 as PDF. (NB. The minimum length in the PDF is NOT valid).
All anglers from the age of 18 until and including 64 years 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.
The prices of the fishing licence is (in the year 2018) DKK 40,- for a daily licence, DKK 130,- for a weekly licence and DKK 185,- for a year. The licence is issued per person and name and home address must be filled out. The licence is valid for angling with three rods. If you choose to fish without a licence you will risk being fined.
Some lakes and fishing parks do not require the fishing licence, but a fishing card issued for the specific location, this is valid for anglers of every age.
Fishing in rivers, brooks and streams is prohibited in our surrounding area – we refer to the streams Gels Å and Gram Å on the eastside and Vidå on the westside of Jutland.
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.
