As April turns into May the first big salmon start to enter the river. These fish usually weight closer to 15 kg. They are fat after eating herring in the Baltic Sea nutrient-rich water throughout the winter. The May fishing depends a lot on weather conditions, usually it's best fishing at the higher and colder water. Ideal conditions according to many mörrum fisherman is about 35-40 cubic meters and 10 to 12 degrees in the water. At these conditions the salmon runs in large quantities and rises to a well presented fly. In June the run is still going on, and due to the lower fishing pressure, the chances of capture are higher.
During the month of September is Mörrumsån full of fish. The water temperature has started to fall, the nights are cooler and the river's famous autumn trout have begun to rise in large quantities. The salmon have started to become aggressive and attack a well presented fly, there are fish on all the beats, and you can fish all day. The sea trout is very easily disturbed, so precautions both with how you present the fly and how to wade. It is now that you have the best chance to catch a true trophy trout, concentrate your fishing around the golden hour before and after dawn and dusk!
