Situated in the northeast wilderness of the municipality of Savukoski, the Nuorttijoki River empties into Lake Nuorttijärvi on the Russian side of the border. The fishing area covers all waters of the River on the Finnish side of the border up to the border zone.
Nuorttijoki offers hiking anglers approximately 150 km of pristine river and stream waters for fly fishing and casting. Nuorttijoki is also a great destination for canoeing anglers. Returning from the lower reaches of the river is only possible by coming back upstream.
All persons under 18 years of age receive a 50% discount on the permits and persons under 15years of age are allowed to share the same fishing quota, with permission from their parent or legal guardian. The family permit costs twice as much and its fishing quota is twice as large.
You can buy licences directly from the online store and pay using the
most common payment methods.
Metsähallitus' fishing licences may also be purchased by phone. The service is open on
weekdays from 9 AM to 4 PM.
