Naamisuvanto brings you the salmon fishing experience of a lifetime
The Tornio river is the largest free-flowing river in all of Europe. Most of the Tornio river flows north of the Arctic Circle, so around midsummer, the sun never sets by the river.
The Tornio river is famous for its big salmon. The average weight per fish for the whole fishing season has been around 8 kg in recent years. Every year the biggest salmon caught in the Tornio river weighs more than 20 kg, so you have a realistic chance of catching the fish of a lifetime. These are mesmerising numbers, and if you really want to feel a big salmon pulling your line, the Tornio river is right place for you!
Our fishing tourism company, Naamisuvanto Salmon Fishing, is located 150 km North from the seacoast, in the municipality of Pello in Finnish Lapland. Naamisuvanto Salmon Fishing is a family company led by Petri UUSITALO and his wife Taina. Our main aim is guided fishing, though we also rent boats and fishing equipment. Petri was born by the river, so he really knows his fishing spots. At Naamisuvanto, we have a great home pool, with 5 km for boat fishing and great fly fishing rapids at the beginning and the end of the pool.
Naamisuvanto offers all kind of waters, from fast riffles to a lazy, deep and calm middle pool, and the beautiful neck pool of Kosioniva. There are great staying places for both running and holding salmon, and it is also a very important spawning ground. These are the reasons Naamisuvanto is a hit pool of the Tornio River for the whole fishing season.
We have five main fishing guides: Petri UUSITALO, Santeri UUSITALO, Miska HAAPSALO, Ari NUORA and Isak SANDLING. We mainly offer fishing for salmon by boat or traditional fly fishing. There is also a possibility to fish grayling, trout and other fishes as well. We use only the best gear when we fish salmon. We have Shimano Tekota reels and Beastmaster rods for boat-fishing. For fly fishing, we have quality G. Loomis, Guideline and Loop doublehand rods and Guideline, Hatch and Loop reels, and Guideline wading shoes and waders.
We offer fishing trips to the only pool area of the Tornio River, the mighty and famous fly fishing pool at Kengisforssen. There are three fly fishing pools and a maximum of 8 rods fishing at the same time. It is probably the best fly fishing place in the whole river! But the Tornio River also has many other great fly fishing pools, and with our guides you find the best pools to cast your fly.
