What kind of fishing permits do I need when fishing in the Nellim region?
Only ice-fishing and fishing with a hook and line in lake waters belong to everyman’s rights. For all other kinds of fishing, you will first need to pay the national fishing management fee. In addition, you will need one of the following permits:
If you want to fish in the lakes and ponds surrounding the village, including Lake Inari, with one lure, you will only need to acquire a Lapland lure license.
In case you want to fish in the lakes and rivers surrounding the village, you will need a recreational fishing permit for the Inari wilderness; there are no rod restrictions. However, the permit does not entitle you fish in Lake Inari.
If you want to use more than one lure to fish in Lake Inari, you will need a recreational fishing permit for Lake Inari.
Fishing licenses are sold in the customer service offices of Metsähallitus in Saariselkä, Ivalo and Inari. Other sales offices and ways of acquiring the necessary permits can be found in the links of this text.
