FISH OF KAIRIJOKI

GRAYLING

The dominant species of the area. This fish typically seeks slower flowing backwaters and the tops or bottoms of rapids. It rises eagerly for dry flies, which makes it one of the best catches for a fly fisherman.

BROWN TROUT

That highly desired catch. A brown trout on the end of the line is a wonderful experience; the best time to fish for them is during the twilight hours of dawn or dusk.

WHITEFISH

One of the most challenging species of fish. Fishing for whitefish, which enjoy peaceful currents and insect food, and may feed on the surface, is truly sport fishing. In clear water, you can often see how the fish swim in small schools; catching one on the end of your line is a whole different game.

BROOK TROUT

A beautiful fish and a hard fighter. This game fish is a true fighter considering its size. Brook trout can be caught in the whole area, but are especially plentiful in some side streams. This great tasting fish can be enjoyed fried over a campfire.

NORTHERN PIKE

Truly, the biggest challenge for a sport fisherman. Rivers and lakes with large populations of northern pike can be found around Kairijoki
