The waters of Lapland host a great population of different species to catch with a broad range of techniques.
Fishing as a lifestyle and profession has been present in the Lapland region for centuries. The local people’s diet generally has been based on what the forests, lakes and rivers have to offer: game, arctic berries and root vegetables, and of course fish.
The people here have been dependant on the catch for their living, but as the profession of a fisherman and life in general have developed, fishing also has turned into a lifestyle and a hobby inviting people from all around the world to experience the local way of life.
We believe, that every angler should keep common sense in their mind and act sustainably in every manner.
Lapland’s clear waters in rivers and lakes might host not just only a multitude of fish species, but the next unforgettable story told to your family and friends.
Salmon, the king of the river that swims through rough rapids towards the headwaters of the Artery river. The Artery river system is the most productive spawning area of Baltic Salmon, as it is Europe’s largest free flowing river. Salmon starts it journey from the river as a smolt heading to open sea where it reaches maturity. From the sea salmon migrates back to the river for reproducement that happens on the gravels of the headwaters.
Some of salmons spend up to four year at the sea before taking the first trip for spawning. Most commonly the salmon in the Artery river have spent two year at the sea, having the weight between 3-8kg. Some individuals may return up to three times to the river, having the size up to 20kg. Salmon eats only at the sea so the question ”what makes them to bite the lure” still remains a mystery. The Artery river offers anglers a true opportunity to catch these trophy sized salmons. However the salmon should always be fished responsibly.
