Lake Simojärvi 2587

Simojärvi is a wilderness destination that offers diverse fishing opportunities and the permit covers nearly the entire lake. Thanks to trout and pike-perch stocking, Lake Simojärvi has become a popular trolling destination. Simojärvi is also an ideal destination for the whole family, as the area has plenty of rental cabins, lean-to shelters and several boat-launching ramps.
