The streams and lakes in Rebild invites anglers to fish for their own dinner while enjoying the wonderful nature. The large amount of streams and lakes makes the opportunity for fishing great. All you need to acquire is a fishing license. However, some lakes and streams requires an additional local fishing license.

The national fishing license can be bought here. 

Free fishing lakes with national fishing license:

  • Mastrupsøerne, which is four lakes in Støvring. At these lakes, you can fish for river trout and roach. During winter, the sea trout migrate into the lake. You can park close by the lake.
  • Hornum Lake is known for its perch and pike. While you fish, you can enjoy the fascinating birdlife. Fishing is only allowed on the north eastern side, as the other side is privately owned. You can also find a natural playground by the lake.
  • At the large lake in Suldrup, you can fish for crucian carp, roach, and rudd. The lake is contaminated and, therefore, you will primarily find roaches in this lake.
  • Mossø is located south of Skørping by Jamborettepladsen. At this lake you can find pike, perch and roach.
  • Store Økssø is a lake south of Skørping, and at this lake you can fish for pike and perch. From the parking lot, which is 200 meters away, and all around the lake, you can find a handicap friendly path.

You can fish for trout and sea trout at these two sections. Fishing in other part in Lindenborg Stream is prohibited unless you have the additional local fishing license.

  • Simested Stream one of Denmark’s best streams for sea trout, and it particularly known for its large and reproductive sea trout. The stream is between 3 and 8 meters wide, and it a very clear stream with curves and depressions. It is surrounded by meadow and uncultivated land.
  • Lerkenfeld Stream takes its rise in Mejlby south of Rold Skov, and flows into the fjord Limfjorden. It runs though the beautiful landscape in Himmerland, and it is ideal for the trout to spawn and grow. You can find sea trout, river trout, and rainbow trout here. In the early spring, you can also find the Limfjord steelheads in the stream.

Put & Take fishing:

Fishing at a put and take lake does not require a fishing license. Volstrup Fishing Park and Buderupholm Fiskesøer (fishing lakes) are great places for put and take fishing. Put and take fishing can be enjoyed by the whole families, anglers or anyone who might want to enjoy a freshly caught fish.

Volstrup Fishingpark

This fishing park was established in 1993 in the river valley vest of Volstrup. The put and take lake are supplied with fresh water from the natural springs, which used to be a part of the meadowland previously. 

Rainbow trout is released every day, but other trout species and eels can be caught too. The park is open all year round, and the lake is kept clear of ice. Different competitions etc. will be held during the year.  

You will have a great day at Volsted Fishing Park.   

Buderupholm Fiskesøer (fishing lakes)

The fishing lakes in Buderupholm opened as a put and take on July 1, 2017. The release of fish is great, and you can find rainbow trout, golden trout, Alsatian char, and silver trout. Later on, more types of Alsatian chars, silver trout and arctic chars will be released.

You will find good gutting facilities and parking by the lakes.

The fishing lakes are open all year round.
