Summer and winter fishing for bait in Finland is not licensed and permitted everywhere except of water rapids, which pegged the population of salmon and whitefish, as well as in areas where fishing is prohibited. Typically, you can fish also in national parks, but to this rule there are exceptions.
Other types of fishing gear, such trammel net and catch crabs, require the payment of state duty for the restoration of fish resources and fishing licenses (except for those under 18 and over 65 years, catching one tackle).

Fishing licenses can be purchased at a local grocery store Sale at the Koli Centre.

At the end of the summer in the daytime walleye jigging well caught at a depth of 4-10 m in the middle of the wide open waters of Lake Pielinen with places for catching whitefish can be trolling (track) to catch landlocked salmon and trout. Different types of carp are well represented in the lake Pielinen, float fishing enthusiasts will find their interest in the bays and around islands. Ice-fishing and fly fishing off the coast of the islands can bring you a present whitefish weighing more than one kilogram. Perch fishing trophy too frequent, and because of the large stocks of whitefish your prey can become a huge bass even at the small Koirilampi lake nearby the OtsoPirtti cottages.
