The Danish Nature Agency manages about 25 percent of Denmark's lakes and streams, totalling 12,859 hectares (2003 figures). Some of the lakes are among the country's most protected natural areas, while several of the larger lakes in particular are used intensively for outdoor purposes.

On Rømø you can also fish very well.

Angling and fishing license
Free fishing in state forests
Many lakes in the state forests have free fishing, which means you can fish for free. If you are under the age of 18 or are entitled to a state pension, you do not even need a fishing license in these lakes.

Payment fisheries
If you are using payment fishing, you must purchase a fishing card from the local sports fishing association. The card gives the right to use the individual fish water. Get familiar with the rules of minimum size and conservation times and show consideration of nature and bird life when fishing.
