Welcome to one of the greatest fishing destinations in the world
Fishing in Finland is a great experience for fishers. The country is covered in numerous kinds of clean freshwater lakes: one tenth of Finland is made up of lakes, rivers and ponds. All in all, there are 187 888 lakes and 647 rivers in Finland. Finland has about 1100 kilometers of sea shoreline without including the countless inland islands and little inlets along them.
Lake Päijänne is an excellent place for fishing. Lake Päijänne is Finland’s the second largest lake. The Finnish lakes and shores covered with reeded bays, beaches and shallow waters are perfect for fishing.
The most abundant fish in the Finnish lakes are pike, perch, pike-perch, whitefish, burbot, and bream. In the spring and fall when the lake water is colder, trout and salmon are more easily caught. In the summer the trout and the salmon swim in much deeper water.
