For those who are fond of water entertainments Tahko can offer guided fishing or boat trips.
Professional fishermen organize trolling and fishing trips as well as fishing lessons. It is possible to organize fishing trips to the nearby rapids, for example to Lastukoski. There in the beach park you can find a kiosk-restaurant, a lean-to and a pier for those who have difficulties with walking.
It is normal practice that every fisherman has to have an appropriate fishing license except those who fish with a fishing rod on a worm from the beach. A local fishing license can be bought, for example, at Sokos Hotel Tahkovuori or in the center of Nilsiä (Pyörä-Manninen OY, Nilsiäntie 64, tel. +358 17 463 1123) and a government license at R-kioski in Nilsiä or online at www.ahven.net
