Jokijärvi area: Fishing in the cultural landscapes of Jokijärvi is an experience in itself. Jokijärvi spans 598 hectares, with the Iijoki River flowing through it. Fishing on this lake is best from a boat. Keep your net handy, as your fishing rod may soon be bouncing with a nice pike or a trout with great fighting spirit. There are boat launching sites at Romppasensalmi and Saijanranta.
Tyräjärvi - Koviojärvi area: Pike perch have been introduced to Tyräjärvi, and some of them have grown into decent-size fish. On summer evenings, pike perch will surface near the middle of the lake, and you are most likely to catch it by trolling with a surface lure from the boat. There are also pike of various sizes in the lake, which might constitute your main catch if pike perch won’t take your bait. If you feel like fishing further from the shore, you can launch lighter boats onto the waters of Tyräjärvi from Pökkelönniemenranta or Hakalanranta.
