Lake Pyhäjärvi is an open lake almost completely devoid of islands, the northern shore of which is very rugged, while the southern shore is more even. Most of Pyhäjärvi’s waters flows in from the River Kopsjoki and out via the River Lehdesmäenjoki into Lake Iso-Roine. The lake has an average depth of 11 m and a maximum depth of 35 m. The lake is slightly eutrophic, though the water quality is still good and the lake’s ecological status has been determined to be good.
The lake has a good amount of vendace and the whitefish population has grown stronger as well. Other typical fish include burbot, perch, trout, bream, pike-perch and pike. The lake also has plenty of signal crayfish. Pyhäjärvi is a challenging lake for angling, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t catch some big ones on a good day. Good lures to use include Heta, Jesse and Merimetso.
