It is a great pleasure to go with a spinning rod along the river looking for the places where the fish hide! The Gudenå River system is also more than the famous salmon and sea trout. There are fine stocks of sand, pike and perch, among others.
The Gudenå River at Langå
The stretch between the two railway bridges in Langå is one of Gudenå's most popular fishing spots. Here the sea trout stops, which must go up in the Lilleå River to spawn. More than half of all Gudenå's sea trout need it. There is therefore a congestion of both fish and anglers on this piece.
The Gudenå River at Frisenvold
Another good fishing spot is the Jernbanesvinget, where many fish are landed throughout the season. There are just as many fish at the Husmandsbrinkerne further downstream. Already in 1443 there was a salmon farm near Frisenvold. In the river there are remains of the old pile rows, which today form good stands for the rising fish.
The Gudenå River at Stevnstrup
At Stevnstrup are two major turns that have thrown away many "Greenlanders" - glossy, non-mature sea trout just around the minimum - over the years. Downstream Stevnstrup decreases the current and the Gudenåen now changes character from river to river - the only one of its kind in Denmark.
The Gudenå River at Fladbro
At Fladbro, Gudenåen receives water from Nørreåen. Where the two rivers meet, there are good stands for fish. Here, however, pike, perch or species of goats are most likely to go to the bite - more often than salmon and sea trout, which is more common here. At the motorway bridge, there is a lot of fishing and catches with fish. Most pike, perch and sand species, but also some salmon and sea trout on transit.
The Gudenå River at Randers
In winter, many white "Greenlanders" are often taken inside the town of Randers. The fishing takes place partly at Justesens Lawn near Randers Regnskov - partly at the harbour itself, where in addition to the sea trout, both perch and sand species are caught.
