Aside from angling, herring fishing with a rig and ice fishing (people under the age of 18 and people over the age of 65 have a free lure fishing right), all other forms of fishing (including reel fishing) require paying a fishing management fee. Additionally, the use of several rods and fishing in special permit areas require the water area owner’s permission. Fishing permits are personal. You can pay the fishing management fee (people 18–64 years of age fishing with lures or fixed fish traps) via or at R-kioski (EUR 6 a day, EUR 12 a week and EUR 45 a year).
