Koirajärvi 6566

Fishing brown trout on a wilderness lake in the middle of the realm of forest reindeers is possible at Iso-Koirajärvi, in the Salamajärvi national park. The scenic and clear-watered lake with its craggy beaches and islands is perfect for fishing and forgetting your daily worries. Brown trout and whitefish have been stocked in the lake for the fishers to catch. In addition, it is possible to catch a large perch or pike. Besides fishing, the many services available in the national park and at Koirajärvi offer plenty of wilderness experiences for the whole family.

New combination permit available

There is a new day permit available for the area, a Koirajärvi-Heikinlampi combination permit, which allows fishing at Koirajärvi and at Heikinlampi which is part of the Kaunislampi 6567 permit area. The combination permit does not allow fishing at the other waters of the 6567 permit area. Please familiarise yourself with the map of the permit area.

Licence terms

Regional licensing terms

1.1.–31.12.
  • The permit allows lure fishing (lure, fly, jig), angling, and ice fishing.
  • The Koirajärvi 6566 angling permit or Koirajärvi-Heikinlampi combination permit is required for all fishing. General fishing rights (angling, ice fishing, lure fishing with the fisheries management fee) are denied with the decision of the North Savo ELY Centre (2198/5710-2015) for the purpose of securing the economic use of the fish stocks.
  • The use of all types of artificial lures (lure, fly, jig) is permitted. The use of natural baits (grubs, shrimp, bait paste, etc.) is also permitted.
  • Fishers are allowed to use two fishing rods and lines, of which the other can be a so-called ootto fishing rod, when fishing on ice. During open water season, fishers can use one fishing rod or line that is either in hand or nearby (max. 2 metres away). Leaving the rod alone for fishing is forbidden.
  • When trolling without a motor, each angler is allowed two rods/lines.
  • Scuba fishing and the use of a harpoon are prohibited.
  • An angler may use his or her own boat, but they must pay a fee for its use equal to the price of a rental boat.
  • The use of an outboard motor (including electric ones) is prohibited.
  • Using a flotation device is permitted.
  • The isthmus between the lakes is a no fishing zone.
  • Please note! If you are fishing on ice with both an active rod (ice fishing) and with an ootto rod, the fisheries management fee must be paid. The fisheries management fee is required in open water season when fishing with throwing fishing tackle. The fisheries management fee is required from fishers between the ages of 18 and 64.
