     SALMON CATCH STATISTICS - RIVER SKJERN 

        By the river Skjern it is required that all catches of salmons be
        registered no later than 4 days after a salmon has been caught.
        This rule applies to all - fishing Association members as well as
        fishermen buying a daybased fishing license.  
        
        Since, at the moment, the fishing authorities would like to build
        a bigger and more sustainable stock of salmons certain quotas
        are in place by this river allowing only 1 salmon per year per
        angler if the fish is above 75 cm, if below 2 salmons per year is 
        permitted.
        
        Season is from 16. April until 15. October 2013
