Coastal fishing

In several areas of Horsens Fjord, you can catch sea trout and rainbow trout and, in the summer months, also needlefish and mullet. And, in Horsens Harbour, you can catch herring and flatfish, amongst others.

On the northern shore and in the innermost part of the fjord, the waters are so shallow that waders are necessary. Tread with caution as the conditions on the bottom and the current may be dangerous in several areas.
Also, keep in mind the current conservation areas (see the map).

If you are between 18 and 65 years old, you must have a valid state-issued fishing licence which you can buy at, at Horsens City Camping or at Effektlageret which also has a wide range of fishing gear.
