Lätäseno 1550

Permits become available on 18 May 2020, 9 AM.

Lätäseno originates in the fell streams of the Käsivarsi wilderness area, which join together to form the great rivers of the region. For example, the Rommaeno, Toriseno and Poroeno rivers all drain into Lätäseno, which is the largest tributary of Muonionjoki River. The Lätäseno fishing area consists of Lätäseno, Poroeno and Toriseno rivers. Salmon migrating back to Lätäseno can travel up distances to 500 km. The area is well known for large grayling and whitefish, and sea trout also migrate to Lätäseno.

The area is ideal for traditional casting, but trolling from a rowboat is also possible. Lätäseno is accessible on foot and by boat, all-terrain vehicle or airplane. A permit for Lätäseno allows fishing on more than 100 km of river running through open fells and landscape below the tree line.

Please note: The lower course of the river also has some fishing restrictions and private water areas. You can check the water area borders in the permit area on the target map available on this page and from the excursionmap.fi map service.

Permit area: Lätäseno between Vähäkurkkio and Lake Porojärvi. Toriseno until Vuontisjokisuu.
