Lake Särkinen is closed until further notice!
Trump cards of the Lake Särkinen recreational fishing area include clear waters, easy access and an ideal location amid Vuokatti’s tourism services. Many rainbow trout fishers know Lake Särkinen as the venue of various fishing events. The Finnish salmon ice fishing championships, a regional youth ice fishing tournament, the salmon ice fishing cup and the FishKatti lure fishing competition attract hundreds of anglers to the lake.
During the open water season rainbow trout can be hooked by spin fishing from the Lake Särkinen shore or by lure fishing from a boat. As most of the shoreline is even sand, the best way to make a catch is by lure fishing from a rowing boat. A boat will also help you find fish in the deepest hiding spots. As lure fishing from a boat in summer requires no equipment or casting skills, Lake Särkinen is an ideal salmon fishing destination for inexperienced anglers, or even the entire family. The tourism companies have boats available for hire.
Lake Särkinen is also an excellent ice fishing location. Ice fishers pursuing the vigorous salmon should equip themselves with large augers and sturdy fishing equipment. On the other hand, in clear water the salmon and especially the wary whitefish demand a circumspect approach. In clear water you can also sample the excitement of sight ice fishing. Active summer and winter lure fishers will find time to visit every known hotspot on the lake in one day. The most well-known are the Opisto shallow, the Rantapenkka bank, the corner closest to Nurmestie Road, the Hovi deep and Tennislahti Bay. Fish also bite now and then out on the open lake with the lure swimming just below the surface or ice deck.
