Welcome to the Fishing Waters of Hossa!

Hossa angling permit 5502 entitles the permit holder to fish in Hossa National Park at Umpi-Valkeainen Lake, Iso-Valkeainen Lake and the rapids and running water areas of waterways as well as outside the national park at Huosilampi Lake, Keihäslampi Lake and Hossanjoki River. At the other waters of the national park, everyone has the right to go angling and ice fishing free of charge and those who have paid the fisheries management fee are entitled to go lure fishing at ponds and lakes.

There are natural whitefish and perch populations in the ponds and lakes of the national park. In addition, the waters of Umpi-Valkeainen and Iso-Valkeainen are managed by stocking them with small fry of brown trout and grayling. In many places, the water is crystal clear and the fish are shy, so fishing is not always easy. At these waters, it is practical to know about the behaviour and eating times of fish to be caught.

The River Hossanjoki is being stocked with brown trout. The most important catches in the other flowing waters are naturally reproducing grayling and, in places, brown trout.

There are two rainbow trout ponds: Huosilampi and Keihäslampi, which are stocked with catch-size rainbow trout. Huosilampi is also suitable for fishermen with limited mobility.

In the ponds and lakes which are located outside the Hossa National Park and which are managed by Metsähallitus, you are allowed to go angling and ice fishing free of charge and you are allowed to fish there with one rod, under the lure fishing right that is included in the fisheries management fee. Fishing in rapids and flowing waters and with more than one rod is possible with the North Ostrobothnia‒Kainuu angling permit 5411.
