Kalastajan Kymijoki is a channel that collects and shares current information about fishing on the Kymijoki River. It’s the view of three passionate salmon fishermen about what a good fishing medium should be like.
Tight lines in Kymijoki
Kymijoki is the most important baltic salmon river in Southern Finland. The river flows into the Baltic Sea in the Kymenlaakso region. The original salmon stock in the Kymijoki River was destroyed in the 20th century due to the dam of the river and industrial wastewater discharges. Salmon were returned to the Kymijoki River in the late 1970s when salmon were planted in the Neva River. Today, Kymijoki produces a large proportion of wild-born juveniles.
