Camp Onka - Salmon Fishing


Experience the vast wilderness and first class salmon fishing of the majestic Lainio river, home to the mighty wild Baltic Salmon.
Lainio is the main river for spawning and a tributary river to Torne river.
The Onka waters are 250km from the Baltic sea and here the river runs through the deep forest of Torne valley.

We have exclusive double bank fishing on 10km of water split into 3 beats named LipistökoskiOnka home pool & Pahtakoski.

The two beats of Lipistökoski and Onka home pool are quoted to six guests a day. Pahtakoski zone is more of a public water and here we sell day fishing licenses.

In our programme we alternate between beats every day so guests can fish all three beats. Fishing is accessible from both sides of the river via dirt tracks and footpaths through the forest. We also have a rowing boat situated at the Onka home pool and Lipistökoski beat to quickly access both sides of the river during the fishing day. We mostly fish the Pahtakoski beat from the east side where the best pools are and it is easier to access from that side.

Average weight for fly caught salmon here is 15 lbs, while fish running into the 30/40+ lbs class are not uncommon.

Be ready for an adventure hiking, wading and swinging flies in our vast picturesque waters.
