- Laholmsbukten, (bay of Laholm) -
The bay of Laholm, a stretch of the coast between the city Halmstad in the north and the city Båstad (Hovs Hallar) in the south. Several salmon and sea trout populated rivers flows out into this bay. They are river Nissan, river Fylleån, river Genevadsån, river Lagan, river Smedjeån and river Stensån.
All kinds of fishing are suitable here, spinn fishing, trolling, angling and flyfishing. Most of the fishing is for sea trout, salmon, garfish, perch and different species of flatfishFishing for sea trout/salmon usaully begins 31/3 and continues until 30/9. But check latest regulations on site The best fishing for sea trout is in April and usually last to middle of May, when the fish for garfish usually begins.
Fishing in the bay is free, but remember that the areas surrounding river outlets is not free. Here you must buy fishing permits for each river.
The fishing for sea trout is best at dusk and dawn, but when the weather gets warmer the fishing is best at night-time
The best wind condition is if the wind blows from south west. A varied stony bottom with weeds and sea grass is good and the fishing spots near the river outflow is always worth a try. A good rule is: the warmer the water is, at further distance from the shore shall you fish.

Fishing tips for fly fishermen:
Dryflies: At dusk: Streaking caddis, dark muddlers or other flies that create a sharp silhouette against the sky. Other well floating dryflies works fine (size 12-16) e.g Rackelhanen, E-12 and Variant flies.
