     SALMON CATCH STATISTICS - RIVER VARDE 

        The statistics for the river Varde is very reliable since reporting
        on catches is required within 4 days. This rule applies to all -
        Fishing Association members as well as Anglers buying a daily
        fishing permit.  
        
        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 permitting just 1 salmon per year per
        Angler. Furthermore a total of 130 salmon is the maximum catch
        permitted for the whole of the river. When this figure is reaches all
        fishing becomes catch-and-release. Season by river Varde is from
        16. April - 31. October
