Salmon fishing in Lagan has been important for the residents of Laholm for a very long time. Kings, the church and the bourgeoisie fought for a long time for the right to fish for salmon. At the end of the 19th century, 20-30 tonnes of salmon were caught every year. In the large fall of Karsefors east of Laholm alone, up to 150 salmon could be caught a day. When hydropower was expanded at the beginning of the 20th century, the playgrounds and thus also the salmon disappeared. As compensation, the power company started a salmon farm in Laholm. A modern compensation cultivation that now releases about 90,000 smolts annually in Lagan.
Sport fishing has for a long time been a popular leisure activity along Lagan's beaches. The most common is spin fishing, but there are also stretches that are suitable for fly fishing. The entire distance from just downstream of the power plant in Laholm and out to the estuary is 8 km.
In the spring, the trout rises in Lagan and already as early as the end of April, fine shiny freshly caught salmon can be caught. The salmon's hike up into Lagan gives a fantastic autumn fishing with salmon of up to 14 kg and many catches of 7-8 kg.
