Three ponds with the same permit! A recreational fishing area in northern Central Finland, near the Salamajärvi national park, where rainbow trout and whitefish can be fished. Especially Heikinlampi has plenty of throwing space, where even the smallest fishers can easily practice the art of fishing. There are different accommodation and other services available nearby at the Koirasalmi Nature Information Hut.
There is a new day permit available for the area, a Koirajärvi-Heikinlampi combination permit, which allows fishing on both Heikinlampi and the Koirajärvi 6566 permit area. The combination permit does not allow fishing at the other waters of the Kaunislampi 6567 permit area. Please familiarise yourself with the map of the permit area.
All persons under 18 years of age receive a 50 % discount on the permits. Persons under 15 years of age are allowed to share the same fishing quota, with the permission of their parent or legal guardian. For fishers under 15 years of age who intend to fish alone, a one week's fishing permit is available free of charge at the Eräluvat online store.
A family permit is also available for this destination. In this context, a family consists of children under 18 years of age and their parents/legal guardians. Married couples and couples in a civil union may also purchase family permits. 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.
As of 1 January 2020, mobile permits are no longer available. This is due to mobile network operator’s decision not to provide the current service anymore.
