Check out the kinds of fish you can catch in Gudenåen and everything about the fishing permit below.

Fishing permit

All recreational fishermen between the ages of 18 and 65 must carry a valid national fishing permit in order to fish in Danish waters.

Children under the age of 18 and pensioners can fish without a permit.

You must purchase the permit before you start to fish, and the permit must be valid during the period of fishing. Without a valid fishing permit, the fishery control inspectors can give you a fine.

When you purchase your fishing permit, you will be given an ID-number which you must bring along with your personal ID, whenever you want to fish.

The money from the permits goes to the state, so they can keep up the population of fish and do research on creating a better environment for the fish.
