Spring (March, April and May)
Is there anything like the first hints of spring? A day when the sun warms you while you hear birds chirping while the colors of the surrounding nature change from gray to a clear green. The sun warms the water in the fjord and the trout that has visited the streams to spawn return to the fjord once again.
Depending on the winter’s harshness or whether spring arrives early in Mariager, the number of migrating trout can vary. But one thing is certain, the fjord will once again be a hotbed of “fish” activity.
The emergence of bristle worms (polychaete) between March and April provides trout with an ample food supply. If you visit the fjord in this period, you will experience a unique fishing opportunity, where practically every fishing line cast into the water results in a catch. Just use anything that resembles a bristle worm as bait!
In May Garfish begin their migration to Mariager Fjord, and they appear in such vast numbers that makes it difficult for
angler’s to catch anything else. Garfish will take pretty much any bait!
