ANY LUCK IN FISHING?
ANY LUCK IN FISHING?
Saarijärvi allows fishing on several bountiful lakes such as the clear Pyhäjärvi, on several rapids, and on the Pajulampi pond by the city centre.
You do not need to be a professional to try your luck, just hook a worm and give it a go. Dawn and dusk are the best times for fishing, as this is the time when the small fish come out of hiding to hunt for insects. When the small fish get going, the bigger and more valuable fish do too, so this is the time when you can catch the best fish. What could be more exciting than tiring a silver-sided trout in the dusk of a summer night!

PAJULAMPI, RECREATIONAL FISHING DESTINATION
This licence-based recreational fishing destination is maintained by the Saarijärvi Association. The pond is stocked with rainbow trout and whitefish. If you want to fish from a boat, you can rent one at Ranta-Kivi at the address Jyväskyläntie 34. Hyppyrimäentie 5, 43100 Saarijärvi,
014 3333 777.
Worm fishing is especially amusing for the children in the family. It is very exciting when the float sinks beneath the water and the rod bends in the hands of the small angler. Did I get a perch or maybe even a rainbow trout? Rent a boat and try your luck at e.g. the Pajulampi pond by the city centre.
Hear the roar of water and experience something unforgettable with rapid fishing! You may even see a white-throated dipper observing you as you fish.
You can purchase a casting and trolling licence that covers the areas of several fishing associations.
The contact details for all associations can be found at the address www.saarijarvenkalastusalue.fi
Get your licence, make some lunch, collect tips, and go fishing!
See more details and a licence price list on the Saarijärven Osakaskunta website.
