Iso-Roine – clear and multifaceted

The clear-watered Iso-Roine is one of the deepest lakes in Finland and also boasts good water quality. The deepest part of Iso-Roine, reaching down to 73 m, is found off the shore of Rukkoila. The clear lake has low phosphorous levels and has had no problems with oxygen. The lake has a substantial vendace population that sustains robust predatory fish populations. In addition to vendace, the most desired catches are trout, pike-perch, perch and pike. The lake’s hard-bottomed bays are well-known burbot ice fishing spots. Smelt fishing with nets is also an annual event in the spring on the River Lehdesmäenjoki, which flows between Iso-Roine and Pyhäjärvi in Hauho. Good lures to use in the waters of Hauho include Jesse and Heta Vaappu.

The joint property management associations’ permits in the Hauho fishing area

In other words, you can purchase a permit from one joint property management association and fish in the entire basin. Check the permitted area when purchasing a permit.
