Fishing licence

In West Denmark, there are great possibilities of catching a fish in the ocean, fiord, rivers and lakes and angling is a lovely vacation activity. If you wish to angle, you need to purchase fishing license.

A license is required for fishing in the Danish ocean, fjords and rivers for all persons between the ages of 18 and 65. You can buy a license valid for a year, a week or a day. The income from the sale of fishing licenses benefits all anglers as the money is spent on maintaining the fish populations. Some places are subject to private fishing rights. This means that you perhaps also need a local license before you're allowed to cast your line. Staff at the tourist offices will assist you in working out which licenses you'll need to fish in the various areas. At the tourist offices, the staff can help you find out which licence you need to fish in the different areas. Licences can be purchased physically in Hvide Sande at KOTT Fritid and Lystfiskeren and in Blåvand at Blåvand Fishing or online. Fishing in Skjern Å requires the special fishing license and the salmon license which can be purchased at Outdoornu.dk and Laksens Hus. At Put & Take lakes you only pay the owner.
