When driving from Snogebæk towards Dueodde via Strandmarksvejen, turn left after three kilometres at the intersection with Udegårdsvejen. Continue until the road ends. Here, at a place called “Kjøddtynjan”, you’ll find a good place to park.
Kjøddtynjan is situated right in the middle of a conservation zone, where Dammebæk pours into the ocean. However, the conservation period here, only lasts from September 16th until January 15th. When fishing here during the conservation period, you’ll need to relocate some 700 meters to the right and start fishing here.
Outside of Dammebæk, there’s a long reef consisting mainly of slate and granite with scattered patches of weeds and bladderwracks. The reef itself is easy to wade, but there are holes here and there, so – for safety measures, please bring along a wading staff. Seatrout like to patrol and hunt along the reef, which is home to lots of small prey items, so fish the whole reef thoroughly – both the reef itself and the edges of it.
Sommerodden (The Summer Point) is the next fishing spot after Kjøddtynjan towards the west. If you think it’s too far to walk, you can drive there via Strandmarksvejen. Turn left at Sandvejen and continue straight ahead until you reach the parking lot at the end of the road. It has its own toilets and bench-tables and is the perfect place for rigging all your gear and for a quick bite to eat before getting started fishing.
A small path takes you to the beach, and once you get there, you’ll see a granite reef extending into the ocean. This place is very popular among local fishermen and is commonly referred to as Stenodden (The Stone Point). The reef is worth a great deal of effort but, once you’ve covered it, slowly move to the left towards Sommerodden. The stretch between Stenodden and Sommerodden is usually referred to as “Mellemstykket” (The Middle Section), and it is about 800 meters in length.
On either side of the reef, there’s a depression. These two depressions are interesting as seatrout like to hunt here. The bottom features a slate basis with sand bars, gravel, weed patches, and seagrass, which collectively provide great habitat for small shrimp, gammarus, gobius, and sandeel. Both spin- and fly fishing work really well here.
The spot known as “Fortovet” can also be fished with the parking lot at Sommerodden as a starting point. This spot is found on the right-hand side of Stenodden. It can be a little tricky to wade because of the many boulders strewn here, but don’t fret. After the first 50 – 60 meters, the bottom features slowly transform and suddenly you’re on sand that’s easily waded. The water depth, however, increases so you can’t wade very far out.
Fish the whole stretch carefully while wading westward. It is about 300 meters in length, and it ends at the year-round conservation zone near Øle Å.
If there’s enough water for the seatrout to migrate upstream Øle Å, it’s worth following the river upstream to Slusegård vandmølle (Slusegård Watermill). Here, you’ll find a curious little café (with limited opening hours), and you can sit on the bank of the river and watch the seatrout stack up in preparation for the spawning. It’s an incredible sight, when the timing is right, and the fish are there. The whole area is beautifully preserved and well worth the walk.
Raghammer Odde – The Eastern Part
Raghammer Odde (Raghammer Point) – the eastern part. Drive from Snogebæk via Strandmarksvejen, which then transitions into Strandvejen and continue on the road until you get to the T-junction at Baunevej. Here, you’ll make a left turn and then turn right onto Vestre Sømarksvej. Follow this road until you reach Peter Funchs vej on your right-hand side. It will take you to a small parking lot.
The fishing spots are right next to a big military shooting terrain, and when it’s in use (or about to be used) an orange bullet will be hoisted. If it is in use, please don’t fish the point below. There is a blackboard with shooting schedules, so you can always refer to that. The schedules are updated on a running basis, so we – unfortunately – can’t list them here. Nonetheless, if the shooting terrain is in use, you can always resort to fishing the area to the left. You might, however, find that it will be a bit noisy with all the shooting going on.
Raghammer Odde is an area with sand and granite cliffs protruding into the ocean. It’s a great place to start fishing early in the morning – or when the sun sets. Seatrout like to hunt here when the lights are low. The whole area is pretty easy to wade, but if it’s your first time here, consider using a wading staff. Many fly fishermen really like this spot, since it tends to fish well even with pushing eastern winds. Spin fishing also works like a charm here. The spot is perfect for covering water and you should gradually move to the west while doing so.
If you’re visiting the area in the period between 16th of September and January 15th, you’re only allowed to fish a 600-meter stretch until you reach the conservation zone at Henrikkebæk’s estuary. If you’re fishing outside the conservation period, you can fish approximately 2 kilometres of superb coastline until you reach Raghammer Odde.
Raghammer Odde (The point itself) requires a bit of pioneer spirit. From Rønne, drive down Sdr. Landevej, pass Bornholms Lufthavn (Bornholm Airport), and continue until you get to a small rest area on your right-hand side near an old quarry – some 9 kilometres from Rønne. Here, it’s important to remember all your things because it’s a long walk to get to the coast. Follow the small path towards the ocean. It’s a beautiful walk of about one kilometre. Once you arrive at the coast, you’ll see a small creek on your right, Rise Bæk, which isn’t subject to any regulations. The beach mainly consists of abraded granite rocks and they extend way out into the sea. They provide a great ambience to the place and on quiet days, the waves make an especially soothing sound as they lick up against the beach.
If you head off to the right, there’s a reef extending into the ocean. Here, you can wade between boulders of various sizes but be careful. The bottom is uneven, so use a wading staff. You can start fishing the right side of the reef, reaching as far out as you can. Afterwards, fish the middle section and the left-hand side. And don’t forget to cast towards the shoreline every now and then.
From the reef, on your right-hand side, there’s approximately 1100 meters to the conservation zone near Lille Å. The conservation period here runs from September 16th until January 15th. If you choose to wade to the left instead, there are almost 2 kilometres of fishable water until you get to the year-round conservation zone at Læs Å.
Raghammer is an ideal spot to fish early in the morning or once the sun sets.
At Risegård, which is the name of the local farmhouse, there’s a total of 3 kilometres of coastline to fish with abraded rocks, sand bars, and depressions (so-called “bathtubs”). It’s a beautiful stretch that isn’t over-crowded and that can provide great fishing. And with all the fishable water, it more than justifies the walk from the rest area.
Sose Odde (Sose Point) is probably one of the most popular and highly frequented fishing spots on Bornholm. It’s situated some 7,5 kilometres from Rønne via Sdr. Landevej. Once Sosevejen intersects with Sdr. Landevej, turn right and continue towards the parking lot. It’s also possible to continue down to Sose Harbour, but we don’t recommend doing so as it is reserved for traffic with legitimate business there. Once perched on top of the bluffs and gazing out on Sose Odde, you’ll understand why it’s such a great place to be. And if the conditions allow, you will also get a good idea of what the bottom features are like.
Sose Odde is a granite repository, which stretches far into the ocean and has dramatic depth-curves on both sides – so be careful and use a wading staff. The bottom features attract seatrout that hunt on top of it and along its edges. If the weather doesn’t permit you to wade out onto the reef, fish to the right towards Rønne. Here, you’ll find lots of abraded rocks, boulders, bladderwracks and other aquatic growth. In other words, it’s a great stretch for seatrout on the prowl. After a while, this stretch transforms and becomes gradually sandier with dark patches of weeds; what the locals refer to as “tiger bottom”.
When fishing to the left of Sose Odde – where the bottom mainly consists of abraded rocks, which gradually drown in sand as one moves farther away from the point, there’s a conservation zone to be aware of. From 16th of September to January 15th, you can only fish some 250 meters to the left of Sose Odde because of the conservation zone at Lille Å. The whole Sose Odde stretch offers beautiful backdrops in the shape of tall bluffs and raw wilderness. It’s a great place to be!
