Great Vejle Stream
Local name: Store Vejleå
City: Copenhagen (København)

The freshwater part of the Ishoej Harbor area, known for its large perch, but also for lots of bream. The stream is slow and ends in a lake that has a sluice into the harbor basin, and sometimes the saltwater flows into the lake and stream. The access is easy and anglers are catered to with tables and benches and even a small pier for disabled anglers.

The saltwater part of the area is covered separately.

Easy access by car and a short walk to the sluice where you can descend to the water and fish from the bank. There's a path along the stream, but the trees and brushes are quite dense along its banks and require you to find the holes created by anglers. The stream is fished from the bank, and fly fishing is difficult due to the vegetation.
