The lake’s ecological status is satisfactory and the majority of its waters are supplied by the Hauho watercourse. Hauhonselkä’s inflow channel is the short River Alvettulanjoki, which also carries the waters of Iso-Roine. The lake’s outflow channel is the River Kyllönjoki, which drains via Pintele into Lake Mallasvesi.
Ilmoilanselkä’s fish population includes trout, vendace, pike, perch, bream and pike-perch. Pike are abundant and often interfere in jigging for perch and pike-perch by cutting fishing lines with their sharp teeth. There is a good boat launching spot next to the old Alvettula bridge, and you can often find good-sized perch hiding among the bridge piers. In addition to jigs, the lake’s perch are partial to traditional Mepps and Lotto spinners. You can also catch good-sized pike-perch near the edges of the basins, and according to a pike-perch growth survey conducted by Hämeen kalatalouskeskus, the pike-perch of both Hauhonselkä and Ilmoilanselkä grow quite rapidly.
