Karlshamn is an angler’s paradise.

There is fishing to suit everyone, beginners as well as seasoned anglers. Many a record catch has been made here in fishing waters which are as varied as they are easy to reach.
You can fish in the River Morrum as it winds its way through beautiful countryside, cast from the rocky shore of the Baltic or from a boat out at sea.

Karlshamn boasts such international attractions as trolling for Atlantic salmon and pike fishing in the archipelago with the chance of reeling in 44 lb. monsters. There is also coastal fishing for silver sea trout which can weigh as much as 22 lbs. and flyfishing in the River Morrum.

Much of this will be familiar to the readers of angling magazines the world over but there are also other experiences to be savoured. Imagine yourself sitting beside one of the many lakes in the area on a calm summer evening, fishing rod in hand, waiting for eels, perch or whitefish to bite. Or why not try your luck fishing for rainbow and salmon trout in the Kroksjon lake system in a delightful setting north of Karlshamn.

In short, there is marvellous fishing for everyone here.

Kronolaxfisket in Mörrum (the Salmon Museum) is also well worth a visit. Here you can see, amongst other things, a 13 m long aquarium with many of the species of fish found in the Mörrum River. Models (diorama) of the life of the salmon from roe to adult fish and plaster casts of the record breaking fish caught on the Mörrum River are also displayed here.
