Welcome to have winter fun at Lake Saimaa, Finland! We are offering you a
holiday in our well-equipped cottage in the best season of winter for
recreation and ice fishing, as well as fishing with our professional
fishing guide and company owner Jari Kayhko. The cottage is located
right next to a lake and offers very easy access to do fishing, skiing
or snowmobiling on the ice.
Ice cover usually forms in mid-December on Lake Saimaa, but the best ice
fishing time starts from the beginning of January or so. The early ice
is very good for ice fishing of pike. The ice fishing season of rainbow
trout starts from the beginning of January and ends in April. We use
both active ice fishing and tip-up ice fishing methods for both pike and
rainbow trout. From mid-January to mid-February we do ice fishing for
burbot. From mid-March to mid-April it is the best season for ice
fishing of perch, roach and bream near our fishing cottage.
Ice Fishing Holiday on Lake Saimaa
Our cosy and comfortable Fishing Cottage Jokiniemi is best suited and
especially equipped for groups of sports fishermen of 4 to 6 people. The
pond just 30 metres from the cottage is good for independent ice
fishing of pike, perch, bream and roach. The actual Lake Saimaa area
starts from a distance of 100 metres from the cottage. This area is
excellent for ice fishing of zander, pike, perch, burbot, roach and
Fun and easy rainbow trout fishing trip
We arrange rainbow trout fishing trips at a privately owned lake area, which
is located 35 km from the Fishing Cottage Jokiniemi. There is a small
shelter, fireplace and toilet at the area for your use. The distance
from the parking place to the shelter is 100 metres and to the ice is
only 30 metres. Excellent place for fishing with children.

You can use three fishing rods at same time in this place, so we will
use one rod for active ice fishing and two sets of tip-ups. We will use
small spoons, balanced jigs, leeches and ice fishing jigs for active ice
fishing and for the tip-ups we'll use fish eggs as bait.
The rainbow trout in the lake are between 1 and 3 kg in size. You can catch and keep 3 trout / day / one license.
