Looks like I will be going across the Pond this Spring to Denmark and Sweden during April. Is there any stream fishing for Atlantic salmon or seatrout going on at that time of the year that a common Yankee might be able to access? I've never caught or fished for either and would be very excited at the opportunity to do so.

Early April, kelt fising on Morrum

Riveraddict,
Check out the early April fishing on Swedens river Morrum for kelt seatrout (80-90%) and salmon. Its fising for returning fish this early in the season but it is an o.k. fishery that has a long history in Sweden. For a licens you have to apply at the Laxhouse office in Morrum,check out www.morrum.com

Thanks Guys...

I know that April is a bit early, but it would be a crying shame to be all the way over there and not try to find some stream/river to fish just so that I can say that I've swung a fly in European waters!

Morrum is a pretty special river to fish. I was not too far away from it in November when I was fishing for Pike in the Baltic. Stopped a few times to stand on a bridge and watch the river. Promised myself I would go back again this year.

Coastal fishing is also an option. The sea trout should be starting to become active by then.

Hi, you could also try river Ätran on the west-coast of Sweden. It has quite an early rise of salmon with fresh fish as early as in March (even though not many). River Rönneå, also on the west-coast has quite early salmon but isnt that fun to fish with the fly, rather small to my liking. Ätran is "short time" regulated, i.e. during weekends the flow is usually low(10m3/s), whilst during week days you might fish in 40-60 m3/s. Still it is a nice river to fish with the fly. And it is cheap as chips 100 Skr/day = 14 US

you could always hop over to scotland - the spring fishing will be in full flow by that time of year.

depends on how long you're over for, and how much you have to spend on travel etc!

You need to be a bit more specific about where you are going to be in Sweden and Denmark. To give some perspective, saying you can fish in Denmark and Sweden, is like saying that you are going to be on the US west Coast, where can you go fishing. The distances are about the same.

Find out which cities you are going to and then use Google to find fly shops in those cities. Send them emails asking for information. Using English is not a problem, especially in Scandinavia. For the most part, rivers are private, so besides buying a license you need to purchase day access. Saltwater is public and your license will be enough.

Here are a few other links to check out for fishing in Denmark.
