Lapland’s best salmon river

LappeanLohi is located on the shore landscape of Lapland’s most important salmon river, the River Tornionjoki, set by a confluence of two free-flowing rivers teeming with fish. Our guests returning year after year appreciate Lappea’s laidback communal spirit and considerate service. Expert instructions and assistance are provided by our enthusiastic salmon guides.

For the first time in Tornionjoki river in Lappean suvanto we require safety lesson!
All fishing on river Tornion-Muonionjoki is prohibited from 15.9 -15.12.
Fishing on lakes nearby (for example in Ylläs area) is allowed. We arrange also guided fishing trips to the lakes. Ask an offer!

The trolling areas of Lappea are visited year after year by enthusiastic fishermen seeking to catch the wild salmon of the Baltic Sea that migrates up the river in huge schools every year. “It’s worth fishing for salmon, even if you don’t get a catch”, is a legendary phrase among salmon fishermen. The migration lasts the entire summer, with salmon weighing 4 - 20 kilograms migrating in the early season and in the end of the season mainly adult males weighing 1.5 - 2.5 kg. These male salmon disturb the large waiting salmon, so it is a good time for salmon fishing. In the rapid sections of Lappea, you can also catch grayling and pike.

The fishing area covers an approximate distance of four kilometres. The area comprises three pools.

Pool 1, furthest upstream, starts downstream from the Lappeankoski rapids. The pool has a fast flow in the beginning, with the remainder being easy rowing. Upstream from the departure point is a bay inlet, which is a good spot for fishing for e.g. pike.
Central Pool 2 begins from the calm waters, with very slow current at the beginning and faster flows further downstream. This is our most popular pool, because it is easy to start salmon trolling.

Downstream Pool 3 starts from Kustonniva and has a strong current in the beginning, but the flow rates calm down slightly before the Jaapakoski rapids, which is where Pool 3 ends.

Trolling maps can be obtained from the departure point and LappeanLohi. It is recommended you examine the maps before you depart. You can familiarise trolling maps in advance from this link.

The Lappea quiet waters also have shore fishing spots.
Trolling routes, shore fishing and currents change slightly according to water levels, so please ask for last-minute tips before going on the river.
