The Kymijoki is quite an experience!
Big salmon and sea trout run into the Kymijoki by the thousands every year. When the salmon season begins, fishermen and -women from around Southern Finland gather at Siikakoski, Ruha and Korkeakoski to try their luck and test their skills at catching the king of fish.
Whether you fish with a fly or a lure, the Kymijoki is without a doubt the best salmon-fishing river in Southern Finland.
The best fishing stories are born here – welcome to the Kymi River!
We also organize guided fishing trips with a professional co-operative partner!
