Along our coastline you will find a varying ocean floor where the many stones provide hiding places for the beautiful sea trout. In the deep waters of lakes, large pikes wait while being protected by plants and reeds.

Our coast line of 258 km makes the Sønderborg-area and the island Als to the perfect place for your next fishing holiday. Here you will find good angling spots and lakes, where you have a god chance for catching your dinner. 

Fishing in rivers, brooks and streams is prohibited in our surrounding area – we refer to the streams Gels Å near the city of Bevtoft and Gram Å at the city of Gram, both in Haderslev Municipality and Vidå near the ciy of Tønder on the westside of Jutland.

Before the first cast you need to know which fishing licence or fishing card is reguired - read more on the pages about Coast fishing or Lake fishing.

Treat others like you want to be treated
Fishing is a gentleman sport with respect for the nature and other anglers. We have gathered some guidelines of rules and the right behavour:

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 help protect and maintain the stock by keeping the 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.
