Salmon fishing in river Mörrumsån has a very long tradition, with royal connections since time immemorial. The original spears were gradually replaced by salmon tubs, hoop nets, salmon seines and salmon nets, which were in use as late as the mid 1960s. Today, however, all commercial salmon fishing has ceased, but the old permanent fishing areas at Kungsforsen and Hönebygget, can still be seen. The only other salmon and sea trout fishing allowed is angling.


At the fishing office by river Mörrumsån we speak Swedish, English and German.

Fishing regulations

Personal fishing permits are to be obtained at the angling office at Mörrum. The fishing permit should be clearly visible while fishing and be presented on request for closer examination to any member of the staff. A booked fishing area does not give one the right to begin fishing before the fishing permit is paid for and collected. All other rules will be presented when license is collected.
