Fishing areas and licenses

All 18-64-year olds, who fish for any other purpose than ice fishing or angling, must pay an annual state fishing fee. The license entitles you to fish with one fishing rod and lure in almost all areas of Finland.

If you fish with more than one fishing rod, you need a permit from the fishing area concerned.

The permits for Pielavesi and Nilakka fishing areas can be purchased from Neste Pielavesi (phone number: 040 8644788).
