Lake Saimaa is the most perfect area for fishing
Permits needed for a fishing trip
Hook and line fishing, ice fishing and fishing with a simple herring rig are free general fishing rights that do not require a permit or the payment of a fee. The right to recreational fishing within the Finnish economic region and in the Finnish public water areas in the Baltic Sea is a general fishing right that requires the payment of the national fisheries management fee if the angler is 18–64 years old.
Metsähallitus is responsible for collecting the fisheries management fee. The proceeds from these fees are governed by the Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in accordance with Finnish law.
