In the Tahko area, fishing is possible in the Syvär and Vuotjärvi lakes, the Lastukoski rapids, and also the salmon pond. The options are endless and every one of them is magnificent.
You can choose to fish independently or enjoy an organised boat trip with a local operator. There are also longer, multi-night trips on offer for something truly unique.
In summer, you can get acquainted with the secrets of lure fishing, fly fishing, or bow fishing, and in winter, you can try your hand at traditional ice fishing or rapids fishing.
Fishing is also an excellent activity for lots of different groups and meals, accommodation and transportation can all be organised for you.
You’ll find plenty of facilities on the shores of Lake Tahko including rowing boats for hire so you can fish from the comfort of your own rental cottage.
You can also rent a guide and all the equipment you need for a great day – or more – of fishing.
In Finland, there are free fishing rights for everyone including angling and ice fishing and also traditional worm fishing and fishing with herring. For other types of fishing, all 18-64-year-olds need a fishing permit, which can be easily purchased online. By paying the fish management fee, you can fish with one lure as well as cast fish. In addition to the fish management fee, you need a separate permit for special fishing destinations, such as the Lastukoski fishing area.
