Metsähallitus offers anglers access to thousands of water areas. Diverse fishing waters around Finland are lakes, ponds, rapids and streams, where the joys of nature are as important as the catch.
Fishing on state water areas
Fishing licence policy and gathering feedback on catch are key to the sustainability of natural resources. Income from licences guarantees renewable and abundant fish stocks and maintenance of water areas. Revenue from permits is used to restore natural fishing water habitats and fry planting, which are planned based on the catch feedback.
