FISHING AND ANGLING
Kokemäenjoki is known as an excellent fishing river. In addition to pikes and other typical river fish, you can catch very desirable fish such as pikeperch and whitefish.
Angling is a fairly surefire way to ensure a catch. Sitting at the end of the farm’s jetty with a fishing rod is a great way to enjoy a summer’s day. You can cook your catch yourself in the outdoor fireplace on the smoke sauna’s terrace. We can lend you a fishing rod!
