Fish for Brown Trout on the Juutua River in Finland, go sightseeing in the surrounding area, and feast on local food and the catch of the day cooked on an open fire next to the river.
You arrive by plane to Ivalo Airport. Your guide, Atte will take you to your preferred resort, which had been chosen before the booking. You get to unpack, and have the welcome dinner. After that we have a look at the fishing gear, fishing techniques, and the river. If there’s time, we can go fishing already on the arrival day.
Your guide doesn’t count hours, just days. He wakes up by the time when you wish to go fishing, and you can be guided 20 hours straight if that is what you wish.
You get to eat a lot at the riverside. Food is mostly made on open fire, and you can even choose what to have. The original plan is to eat the catch of the day and local food.
There will most likely be other fishermen at the river too, but we can always find a good spot that hasn’t recently been fished at. Still it can be a good option just to stay fishing at one pool, and wait for the trouts to return from their lake run.
Every fisherman has their favorite time to fish, but there isn’t any specific hour that is the best on the Juutua River. It is the amount of fishing hours that makes the difference. It is common that the trout strikes your fly right away. It depends on the water level. Most of the pools take some wading to reach the right casting spot, but some pools are easy to fish from the shoreline as well.
After every fishing day the guide needs at least 6 hours of sleep for safety reasons.
You will be driven to the airport at least two hours before boarding the plane.
If there is time before that, we can go fishing also on departure day.
Your guide can also drive you around the area to do souvenir shopping, sightseeing, or to go and have a lunch at his favorite restaurant.
It is possible to take your catch home with you for food or as a trophy. We freeze them, and pack them well in plastic and insulation, so that they stay frozen for several hours.
