The locals know Præstø Fjord like their own back pocket. On this page, we have collected their best tips for the nooks and corners of the Fjord where you’ll find the best fishing spots.

Nysøkrogen and north along Hollænderskoven

If you are wearing waders, position yourself so that you can fish both the reed edge to the west and the slightly deeper water to the east. It’s a fun and interesting place that offers a little of everything. 

Soft bottom, eelgrass, seaweed, green algae, water algae, soft-shell clams, cockles and blue mussels, amphipods, shrimp, herring, sand lances, small roach, etc. Lots of food, shelter and fine bottom conditions. Don’t be intimidated by the sand bottom in some places. Pike, perch and sea trout can be anywhere depending on daylight, sun exposure, temperatures and wind direction. 

Remember the protection zone at Even Å.

The west side of the fjord

This is a relatively shallow area where you have to wade out a bit from the coastline, but on the other hand, you can enjoy 360-degree fishing. The spring offers excellent chances of shoals of small catch, and in the autumn, trout heading upstream.

Remember the protection zones at Even Å, Rødlersbæk, Krobæk and Herredsbæk. 

North side of the fjord

The sandy bottom of Fedkrogen can be excellent on an early spring day with westerly winds where the sun has warmed up the water, but a grey spring day with moderate onshore winds and fast-moving waters can also get busy. It all depends on there being heat in the air and therefore also in the water. 

There is paid parking at Feddet Camping, where you can walk in the water at Fedhavn, or walk past the pumping station at Sivet and get into the water there. 

Park at the bend at Egemosevej and Sivet and head down to the fjord, where it becomes deep relatively quickly on this stretch.

Don’t be intimidated by the sand bottom in some places. There are fish that inhabit all kinds of water. Pike, perch and sea trout can be anywhere depending on daylight, sun exposure, temperatures and wind direction.

The east side of the fjord

The east side is characterised by a certain inaccessibility for anglers in waders, but if you are afloat, it is worth fishing the border area between the light and dark bottom and the tidal/sailing channels around Lille- and Storeholm. Cast your line out onto shallow water and spin the fishing line over the edge to the deep water. 

If you are casting from a boat, westerly winds on a sunny day in the spring can be really interesting and rewarding.
