On your arrival, we invite you to visit the House of the Salmon.

This local fisherman’s information centre aims to service both Danish and foreign anglers and is situated only a few fly casts from the River Skjern.

Three types of fishing licenses are compulsory when fishing the River Skjern: a license for the stretch you are going to fish, a so-called “salmon license” and, finally, a national fishing license.

All three of them can be bought here.

The staff are all salmon anglers themselves and are eager to help and share their knowledge about fishing spots, tackle and up to date info about the river and the fishing in the River Skjern as well as its tributaries.

There is a casting pond right outside the door for you to try demo rods from different retailers.
