The harbor is an important part of Sæby, and it is always very well visited, and for several reasons. One of the reasons are Sæby Å, which has its outlet at the north side of the harbor. Sea trout and salmon migrate up the river, which meanders through the city, to eventually disappear into Sæby and the surrounding hilly and green landscape. The 2 salmonids can, in lucky moments, be caught both on the way up and on the way out of the river.
Note that the fredningsbæltet only allows fishing from the south pier. Read more about it here >>
Another reason is the good atmosphere you often experience among the many fishers who quickly find common interest in fishing. When it comes to fish species, it is not only sea trout and salmon that look past Sæby Harbor's south pier. Mackerel, hornfish, flounder, eel, eelgrass and pheasant are also found below the water surface.
Like all fishing places in North Jutland, Sæby also has the most fish in the summer. However, it can easily be possible to catch flatfish and sea trout in both autumn and spring. The harbor in Sæby is family-friendly and has all the facilities needed to create a relaxing and cozy fishing experience.
