With its 90 kilometers, the River Skjern is not the longest river in Denmark but it has the highest discharge as it drains a very large area.

More than 11 % of Jutland is drained by the main river and its many tributaries. The river has its source at a locality called Tinnet in the same area where the country’s longest river, the River Gudenå (160 kilometers), has its source. The range of flows in the River Skjern is considerable, from an average of 15 cubic meters per second in summer to 22 cubic meters per second during the winter months. Each river has its own variety or race of salmon and the River Skjern salmon is one of the few original lowland salmon races to have survived since the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago. The river is a typical Danish lowland river and rises at 223 feet (68 m). This isn’t much compared to Norwegian or Scottish rivers but it is perfectly suited to its native stock of wild salmon. The River Skjern is renowned for the size of its salmon. Some specimens exceed the 25 kilos (55lb) mark. The average size in 2017 was 6 kilos (13lbs) which is higher than in most European salmon rivers. Catching one of the huge salmon in this river is at the top of many anglers’ wish lists, it is the ultimate challenge.
