Skräbeån

Fishing river between Bromölla and Nymölla

Skräbeån is a small, around 5 km long river between Bromölla and Nymölla, with a lot of sea trouts. The river is mainly known as the southernmost fishing waters for the European cisco in Sweden.

The Skräbeån starts at Bromölla, with the water from the lake Ivösjön and ends a few kilometers south at Nymölla in the Baltic Sea. There are two, around 1 kilometer long sections which have been released for fishing. The northern area begins from Kristianstadsvägen in Bromölla upstream to the Ivösjön, the southern section extends from Nymölla downriver to the estuary.

The fishing season is from March 1 to September 30, the legal minimum sizes are 60 centimeters for salmon and 50 centimeters for sea trout. The average weight of caught sea trout is currently at around 4 kg.

Fishing cards are available at the tourist office in Bromölla or can be bought online on the website of the local fishing association. Permits to participate in the event of fishing European ciscos in November and December are granted exclusively by the fishing association and are highly sought.
