You need no license for angling and ice fishing ( winter jigging).
If you are between 18 and 64 years of age and want to practise fishing other than angling or ice fishing you need to purchase the Fisheries Management Fee (kalastonhoitomaksu)
Fishing licenses = Fisheries management fee
The fisheries management fee is valid for almost all waters of finland (exept special fishing places, rivers etc.). License is for one rod/ person. Around Oravi and Linnansaari National Park you can fish with the Fisherien Management fee.
You can purchase the Fisheries Management Fee without any transaction fees from the Goverments webshop.
The fee is also sold as extra service with our online products and in the reception in Oravi.
Fishing license is personal and it must be paid before fishing has started. The fisher must have proof of the payment and, if requested, present this to an authority or other person who supervises fishing. The proof may be a receipt, fishing card or bank statement. Fishing license need not be paid for assisting persons (such as
rowers) who do not handle the fishing gear during fishing.
