Magnificant fish like the one below are the reason why even the Norwegians (yes!) travel to Jutland to fish the Skjern Å für Springers.
The largest Salmon so far this season was caught on 19th April by Olaf Solberg from Norway (!) on a Green Highlander. Olaf’s fished weighed in at 20.4Kg, a magnificent 121cm Springer fresh in from the sea. Well done, ‘shame it wasn’t released! Beside this whopper, several salmon in the 10Kg – 17Kg bracket have been caught (click here for catch reports). Not bad for a country which you don’t normally associate with salmon fishing and they have some decent beer as well.
If you are interested in Fishing on the Skjern or any of the other top salmon rivers in Jutland (and there are few of them) – then contact Costas at Fisknu.dk he will organise the tickets for you and set you up with a guide.
Enjoy it and “skitfiske“.
