Sport Fishing Areas

Certain, particularly valuable fishing sites – favoured especially by the endangered freshwater Saimaa salmon and brown trout – have, by the official conclusion of the authorities, been excluded from the area covered by the provincial fishing licence.

 
 
Such excluded areas are regularly restocked. In addition to the regulations concerning the minimum size of a fish caught and the periods while fishing is entirely forbidden the sport fishing areas usually have a limit on the amount of fish a fisherman is permitted to catch a day. The selection of licences is more extensive than that of regular fishing zones; even licences for a few hours of fishing are available.
