Camping with fishing at Urhøj Camping.
At Urhøj Camping in West Zealand, we offer holidays where you can combine camping and fishing at a good price. Our campsite is located on Zealand – right on the Jammerland Bay, and we offer waterfront camping.
The coastline in front of the site is often rewarding, especially for sea trout. Sea trout can be caught all year round, but spring, summer, and fall are preferable. In winter, when the sun is shining, the area around the site can also be filled with sea trout. This is due to the so-called "bathing tubs" found along much of the coast here. Additionally, the coastline is also part of a shallow area – so when the sun shines from a cloudless sky in the cold season, the water warms up faster than where the water is deeper. It attracts both the prey and prey fish of sea trout, and therefore sea trout as well.
When winter is at its coldest, we recommend fishing in Kalundborg Fjord, which you can read more about below. From around the beginning of May, the garfish arrive. They are sometimes in the hundreds along the coast in front of the site and further towards both south and north. The beaked fish can be caught for about 2-3 months thereafter.
If you are experienced, lucky, or particularly persistent (perhaps a combination of all three), it is also possible to lure one of the big mullets of summer to bite. The kelp belts, which are found right in front of Urhøj Camping and towards the south, attract mullets in the 3-5 kg class every year. The mullet is both strong and tasty, but also quite shy. It therefore requires a little extra effort to entice this exciting fish to bite.
There is no doubt that Kalundborg Fjord is one of the major attractions in West Zealand, especially for anglers and sports fishermen from all over Zealand.
A angler from Jutland has cast his love on Kalundborg Fjord specifically and has therefore created a page for the benefit of all, where you can read about the fishing spots in the fjord, see where to park, and which fish can be caught. See the page here.
The many fishing spots in the fjord offer sea trout, garfish, coal fish, cod, and flatfish. From the southern harbor pier, you can catch herring and mackerel in season.
Kalundborg Fjord is less than 20 km from our campsite. So if you want to combine camping and fishing, this is an obvious opportunity!
Should you also wish to visit Isefjorden, it's about 50 km from the campsite.
