Fishing rules that cover Mörrum's Kronolaxfiske stretches
The rules cover fishing for salmon, sea trout and hybrids (cross salmon-sea trout). Our fishing rules exist to enable recreational fishing that is based on a water & fishery conservation management as well as the Swedish fisheries legislation.
Every year, a rule review is made to further improve the conditions for fishermen, nature, and fish. Rules that change during the season are published on our website www.morrum.com. Are you unsure about something? Welcome to ask the staff at Laxens Hus or our appointed supervisors by the river! Also read about "Male & Female", "To handle and re-release a fish" and "Sense & etiquette" to be able to understand and apply the regulations.
