Matildanjärvi is a pristine lake inside the Teijo Hiking Area in Southwest Finland. As an angling destination the lake is quite shallow and murky, yet it offers terrific fishing experiences. Fishing from a boat is recommended and boats may be rented from the visitor centre on the shore. Matildanjärvi is also accessible to physically disabled anglers.
All persons under 18 years of age receive a 50% discount on the permits and persons under 15 years of age are allowed to share the same fishing quota, with the permission of 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.
As of 31 December 2019, mobile permits are no longer available. This is due to mobile network operator Telia’s decision not to provide the service anymore. Other sales channels are still available.
