Præstø Fjord is a brackish water area, which is a cross between salt and fresh water. The fjord is therefore home to fish species that are usually found exclusively in freshwater, such as the common roach, bream, ide, perch and pike. In addition, the fjord also hosts common saltwater species such as sea trout, flounder, herring and cod, as well as garfish and mackerel in season.
The fjord is an excellent fishing ground for sea trout, where there can be really good fishing throughout the spring, and where every autumn large fish are caught during their migration to the streams. There are plenty of places around the fjord where you can pull on a pair of waders or go sailing to land some fish.
