Fishing in Karelia on Onega is the most popular service. We organize a fishing trip from the suburb of Petrozavodsk, or in the area of Medvezhya Gora.

The captain of the vessel will tell you more about these types.
Fishing in Karelia Ladoga – the main departure we organize from the town of Priozersk, which is located 2 hours from St. Petersburg, or to Sortavala in the area of Ladoga skerries. Fishing in Karelia on Ladoga is somewhat similar to fishing on Lake Onega. Again, a huge reservoir, where you can’t see the other side. There are large freshwater fish. The main fishing style is trolling. On average, fishing takes from 4 to 10 hours, depending on the fishermen’s passion.
Fishing in Karelia Vuoksa river – the Vuoksa river is located in Priozersk, therefore, if you wish, one day of fishing can be spent on the river, and the second on Ladoga. In this river are found: pike, pike perch, burbot, eel, perch, asp, bream, ide, chub, grayling, roach, rudd, crucian carp, dace, silver bream. Also, Ladoga salmon, trout, whitefish and raw fish come into the Vuoksa River every year for spawning, but fishing is prohibited or requires a license. The main fishing style is spinning from the side of the boat. The boat’s capacity is up to 3 people for a comfortable fishing.
Fishing in Karelia White Sea and the Kem River – This fishing differs from the others in that it is sea fishing (if you go to sea). And the fish, respectively, is also seafood. The main trophy is cod, but you can catch navaga, catfish, pinagora, the famous local herring and flounder. The ichthyofauna of the Kem River is represented by the following fish species: brown trout, pike, perch, roach, ide, bream, whitefish, vendace, smelt.
However, fishing in Karelia on the White Sea is, perhaps, the most dependent on the weather, ebb and flow, and is also poor in trophies. Local cod is too small. On the Barents Sea in the Murmansk region, you can catch a real trophy, and on the White Sea they fish only as long as.
Fishing in Karelia on other places – you can fish on almost any lake. Just take a fishing rod and stand on the shore. However, there are also a number of reservoirs where fishing from boats is practiced. For example, Lake Yanisyarvi, or a number of lakes and canals along the route of the White Sea-Baltic Canal. There are even stocked ponds for lazy fishermen. If you have any wishes, please send your request! We will suggest possible options.
