Address: Kvarnvägen, 375 21 Mörrum

The salmon fishing in Mörrum river is world famous.

People come from near and far to enjoy the angling, but also to experience the area with the Kungsforsen falls in central Mörrum, the restaurant and the Aquarium next to the exhibition. Here you can meet the mighty salmon without wading into the rapid waters and you can experience the history that has made the Mörrum river a Shangri-La for fishing enthusiasts around the world.

Salmon fishing in Mörrum has a very long tradition, with royal connections since time immemorial. It was first described in 1231 in Waldemar II’s land register.

Fishing spears were used long ago for catching salmon on the river. These were gradually replaced by salmon tubs, hoop nets, salmon seines and salmon nets, which were in use as late as the mid 1960’s.
Today, however, all commercial salmon fishing has ceased, but the old permanent fishing areas at Kungsforsen and Hönebygget, can still be seen.
On certain days during the summer and autumn, the hoop net is used in the time-honoured way, but now for the purpose of fishing for salmon breeding. The only other salmon and sea trout fishing allowed is angling.
