River Guden is the longest river in Denmark with its 158 km, however,
     salmon and seatrouts are found only at the lower parts of the river.
     Back in the 1920s the original stock of salmons were extinguished
     due to the building of the Tange power plant, but in the early 1990s
     efforts were made to introduce the salmon into the river Guden - and
     these efforts proved to be a succes. Each year several hundred fish
     are caught in the river with a giant salmon of 21,1 kg from 2009 as the
     biggest fish landed so far.
     The river can change from being gin clear to have a brownish tan and
     due to environmental reasons the river weed grows freely, sometimes
     presenting a challenge to the fisherman - "fishing the weed" is one
     of the secrets to fishing the river Guden from June and throughout
     the season.
     The salmon starts entering the river in late March or beginning of
     April while the seatrouts runs a little later from May/June. 
     Salmons above 10 kg are caught each year but the middle weight is
     approx. 4 kg while seatrouts averages 2,5 - 3 kg.
     Most fly fishing is done upstream the town of Bjerringbro (Zone 1)
     and wading is practised by many. Local as well as conventional 
     patterns are used as well as tube flies of various sorts. One-hand
     as well as two-hand rods are used with intermediate or sinking 
     shooting heads and leaders.
