Fishing regulations 2011 Teno River

The regulations apply to the Finnish sections of the Teno River, Inari River and Skietsham River where they form part of the national border.

Fishing is permitted from 1 June to midnight on 20 August.

The fishing day starts at 7 p.m. Fishing is closed each week from 7 p.m. on Sunday to 7 p.m. on Monday.

Fishing is permitted only with a rod and lure.

Use of shrimp, bait strap or artificial lures resembling them, or use of baitfish or worm bait is prohibited.

The minimum permissible size of salmon, trout or char is 25 cm. The minimum permissible size for grayling is 30 cm. Undersized fish must be returned to the water immediately. Please instruct younger fishermen in particular to release undersized fish. Kelts are salmon that have spawned the previous autumn and migrate to the sea in the early summer. They are thin and in poor condition. Kelts are protected by law and must be returned to the water immediately.

Fishing licences

Every individual fishing or participating in fishing in the Teno River fishing district (including rowers) must have a fishing licence. The Finnish and Norwegian citizens must purchase the Teno River fishing licence in their respective homelands.

1. Fishing on the Inari River above Matinköngäs, and on the Skietsham River, from a boat or the bank, 10 €/day (including Matinköngäs).

2. Fishing on the Teno River and the Inari River (below Matinköngäs), from a boat or the bank, 40 €/day.

3. Fishing on the Teno River or the Inari River (below Matinköngäs), from the bank only, 25 €/ day.

5. Youth licence Persons under 18 years of age, 5 €/week.

It is prohibited for non-residents to fish in the tributary rivers and streams running into the Teno River unless the statutory local fishery associations sell licences to them separately.

A: Fly-fishing from the bank

Fly-fishing from the bank is permitted within the common border area along the entire length of the Teno River, except those tributary river mouths (within a distance of 50 metres) into which salmon rise. These rivers are:

Finnish side In Tenojoki: Vetsikkojoki, Utsjoki, Kuoppilasjoki, Niljoki, Akujoki In Inarinjoki: Karigasjoki, Vuomajoki

Norwegian side In Tenojoki: Laksjoki, Levajoki, Valjoki, Baisjoki, Karasjoki In Inarinjoki: Iskurasjoki, Gorzejoki Fishing is prohibited in the area starting 50 metres above the Karigasniemi bridge and continuing 150 metres below it.

Fly-fishing from the bank using a fly without a casting weight is permitted (see also sections B and C). Persons under 18 years of age using fly and float are allowed to fish from the bank, except in the Boratbokca area.

B. Fly-fishing in the Boratbokca area

Below Alaköngäs, in the Boratbokca area, which starts from the Ala-Jalve cottages and ends at the mouth of the Galdujokka River running to the Norwegian side, fishing from the bank is only allowed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. between 20 June and 19 July. The area is signposted.

The Boratbokca fishing licence quota still applies on the Norwegian side of the border, and Finnish fishermen cannot purchase fishing licences there during the quota period.

C. Rod and reel fishing from the bank

Rod and reel fishing from the bank is permitted on the Inari River from Matinköngäs upriver, along the entire length of the Skietsham River, in Matinköngäs, Yläköngäs and Alaköngäs. The Alaköngäs bank fishing area is divided into two parts: the area from the lower part of the rapids 600 metres upstream may only be fished using a fly without a casting weight. The areas are marked out with signposts. In areas for rod and reel fishing, it is allowed to fish with fly from the bank using float and casting weight. Outside these areas, fishing from the bank is permitted only using a fly without a casting weight (fly and float are allowed for those under 18 years of age).

D. Fishing from a boat

Fishing from a boat is permitted along the entire length of the river. However, at Alaköngäs in the area from Bildam to below Boratbokca, the rower must always be a local resident over 16 years of age.

When fishing from a boat, you may use no more than three rods at any one time. Only one fishing line and one lure per rod is allowed. This rule also applies to recreational fishermen who are using a local rower.

Fishing from a boat at a distance of less than 50 metres from those tributary river mouths into which salmon rise (see section A on the previous page) is prohibited.

The area is signposted.

Fishing from a boat without a local rower is allowed from Monday to Sunday between 9 p.m. and 2 p.m. At all other times, fishing from a boat is forbidden without a rower who is a permanent resident in the Teno fishing district and over 16 years of age.
