Lake Angling in Nors Sø and Vandet Sø in Thy National Park

The two large lakes Nors Sø and Vandet Sø are both among the cleanest in the country.

They are so-called karst lakes, ie nutrient-poor lakes on calcareous bottoms, which have an inflow of water through cracks in the lime.

The lakes are over 20 meters deep, and are former sea bays, which were cordoned off during the land uplift since the Old Stone Age.

Nors Sø is a part of both Hanstholm Wildlife Reservation and Thy National Park.

Here you can catch eel, pike, perche, roach and whitefish.

You are allowed to fish with a rod from the sign east of the camp fire site to the next sign about 1400 meters towards the east.

Vandet Sø one of the most beautiful lakes in Thy, and is a popular get-away spot for the locals.

Here you can catch freshwater fish such as eel, pike, roach, perch and whitefish.

You are allowed to fish with a rod from the parking area on Egevej to the sign about 800 meters further north.

NB: We recommend that you wear waders because you need to enter waters.
