Winter fishing trips
The first Finns are known to have come to Äkäslompolo to fish. Hundreds of years ago the lake was already providing whitefish and trout for the local peasants in winter. In the olden days people fished to keep hunger from the door, but nowadays it is the thrill of the catch that motivates people to get out on the ice.
Rainbow trout can also be caught in addition to the indigenous species in the lakes supervised by the Finnish Forest and Park Service. Enough perch to make a fish soup can be caught in any lake, but the crafty fisherman can, if lucky, hope to land quite a sizeable whitefish.
