To become a member, the company must fulfil the minimum requirements of the classification stipulations – corresponding to 1 star, 1 tree and 1 fish. The minimum requirements include:

  • Permission for the site and use of lakes
  • Permission to put out fish
  • Toilet and fish-cleaning facility
  • Possibility of getting rid of litter

The classification is carried out by the authorisation committee. This takes place after a recommendation by the association’s consultant, who has visited all the companies in advance and carries out a number of registrations of permissions and physical conditions. The classification applies for one year at a time.


Angling licence - angling permit

Everyone between the ages of 18 and 65 must have an angling licence in order to fish in public, saltwater or freshwater, waters. Angling licences can be bought at post offices as well as at a number of tourist bureaus, campsites and from most of the members of Danish Trout Lakes. If you want to fish in a river or a natural lake, you must have an angling permit for that actual area of fishing water.


No public angling licence is required for a trout lake or Put & Take waters.



Competitions are regularly held at individual trout lakes. So keep up to date by checking the local daily press, angling periodicals, or


Praise and criticism

If you are dissatisfied with something, the first person to complain to is the source of your dissatisfaction. If this does not solve the problem, you may make a written complaint to the Association. All written complaints are treated according to the same fixed procedure. If you feel praise is due, or have some good stories, new ideas, great photos, etc., we would love to hear from you. All forms of response are important to Danish Trout Lakes as they help use in our efforts to develop angling in a positive direction.
