I Kangos kan du uppleva riktigt vildmark och fantastiskt laxfiske i Lainioälven, barnkammaren för en stor del av den baltiska laxstammen. Kangos Fiskevårdsområde (Kangos FVO) bildades 1973 med syftet att förvalta och utveckla ett högklassigt och mångsidigt fiske i området kring byarna Kangos och Särkimukka.

Lainioälven är en grund och lättvadad älv, men en vadarstav är alltid bra att ha med sig om man är osäker. Tillgängligheten till älven är mycket god med vägar på bägge sidor om älven, men vissa platser kräver en promenad eller en bilfärd på gropiga skogsvägar.

Medelvikten på flugfångad lax ligger runt 5-7 kg, men chansen att fånga riktigt stor lax runt 12-15 kg är relativt stor. Förbered dig för ett äventyr med vandring, vadning och fiske i våra fantastiska vatten.

Förutom lax huserar Lainioälven även en kraftig stam av storvuxen harr och även en och annan öring. Vill du inte fiska i huvudälven finns här 3 biflöden till Lainioälven. Olosjoki, Keräntöjoki och Nuuksjoki. I samtliga dessa biflöden hittar du både fin harr och öring.

Om du föredrar sjöfiske finns 156 sjöar inom Kangos FVO med fiske efter allt från gädda, abborre och harr till röding, regnbåge och öring.

This is compulsory for the whole season. Fraudulent reports will result in an instant suspension! You will receive a catch report by text message if you bought the licence online. This report has to be filled in even if nothing was caught. If you bought your licence on sight you can report by email or text message to:

All inrapporterad lax är med i utlottningen av ett varupris värde ca 4000 SEK. En inrapporterad lax motsvara en lott. OBS! Bild måste bifogas rapportering.

Etiquette is very strict and must be followed! Never touch a fish with dry hands. The fish must stay in the water while you carefully unhook it with needle nose pliers. If the hook does not come out with ease, the barb of the hook shall be cut and the bare hook shank removed. A spawning fish is worth more than a hook!

Never bring the fish onto the bank, grass, gravel or otherwise, as this can destroy the protective mucus of the fish that prevents disease. Only remove the fish from the water for few second intervals for photographs. The fish must always have an oxygenated water supply. Never lift the fish by the tail only, as this can damage the spine of the fish and never through the gills as both gills and gill covers damage easily.

Support the fish under the belly and steady carefully by the tail. Make sure that the fish can “stand” by itself facing upstream before letting it go. Never rock the fish back and forth, this only forces unwanted water into the airwaves.

Care should be taken in cold water, to handle fish as little as possible, as Salmon can burn easily during these conditions! During high water temperatures fish must be played out quickly, so as not to wear the fish out completely, lactic acid can easily overwhelm a fish in high temperatures.

Proper care in releasing a fish can make all the difference to it's survival, the amount of time taken releasing a fish following these procedures does not matter, better to take your time and allow the fish to fully recover. A strong kick, a splash in the face and a drop of your hat saluting a beautiful creature as it heads back into the river and everyone has a fantastic day!

For everyone’s well-being, respect each other and the restrictions. One step downstream between each cast, do NOT occupy a pool, without leaving room for other fishermen! Do not keep more fish than you need, cooperate with the supervisor and help us to fight illegal fishing! Keep Sweden clean - Pick up your trash! Remember! People caught breaking the rules will receive a ban for the rest of the season and may lead to a permanent suspension!

The only boats allowed on the river, are boats owned by locals. They are all marked with individual numbers and some of them can be hired.
