Fishing

Enontekiö’s crystal-clear waters are an unforgettable experience, no matter the catch.

Enontekiö has pleasant fishing spots for the whole family as well as remote wilderness streams. True devotees will try their luck in the Käsivarsi wilderness or at Lake Pöyrisjärvi.

Common catches here include trout and Lapland’s own delicacy, Arctic char. Lake Pöyrisjärvi is known for whitefish. For salmon, the best time is July to August. The prime time for fly fishing is from late July till end of August.

A good way to experience wilderness fishing is going on a guided tour. An experienced guide will help you with the technique, best fishing spots and safe travel in the wilderness.

Ice fishing is a popular activity during winter.The sunny days of early winter are best time for a ice fishing trip. Make sure that the ice is safe and go with a local guide!

Information & permits

You can learn more about fishing at the Fell Lapland Visitor Centre. From there you can also get your fishing permits.

For more information about fishing in Enontekiö and contact information for private fishing permits, go to Enontekiön Kalastusalue.
