The best fishing spots in the area are located at sea or by the Kalajoki river, which literally means “Fish River”!
Spend a fun day in the early summer trolling with an experienced guide or try the region’s specialty – fishing on standup paddle in the Rahja archipelago!
Catch rainbow trout from the Kalajoki River by the city center or hook the biggest salmon from the Bay of Bothnia. Try ice fishing, raise the lively sea bass from the cold waters whilst enjoying the warmth of the spring sun.


SeaKalajoki offers trolling trips for small groups with onboard its new 10-seat DMS Matilda, departing from from Keskuskari Harbor.
