Has anyone already caught pike and perch on vantariver in 2022 season? How is it going?
By the way, do i need to pay extra money to fish there? Or only in some parts of the river?
Fishing season is started in river. You can catch pike and rainbow trout with lure. Best way to get fish is angling. Bream, roach etc.
You need separated license for rapids, cause they stock rainbow trout there. Out of rapids special license is not needed. Only goverment license which you need everywhere for lure fishing.
Good rapids are Vantaankoski, Ruutinkoski, Nukarinkoski and Myllykoski. Licences you can buy Kalakortti.com.
Pike perch can be found at the Vanhankaupunginkoski fishing area near the mouth of the Vantaa river. Not sure about the other rapids.
Here is a brochure in English:
As stated, Ruutinkoski is another rapid close to Pitkäkoski. You can fish at Pitkäkoski and Ruutinkoski with Helsinki city fishing license or Vantaa city fishing license. Pitkäkoski and Ruutinkoski can be a bit challenging at times. No rainbow trout is stocked there, even though you might catch some that have flown down from Vantaankoski (which requires a separate, more expensive license). Nevertheless, it's a nice experience.
If you live in Helsinki or Espoo, you can by a combined license for Helsinki and Espoo at 17€ and this give you the permission to fish at these rapids, plus (for example) use 3 rods for white fish (siika) bottom fishing (pohjaonki) at Helsinki and Espoo fishing areas (please find the maps for these, this is not all shores in Helsinki or especially Espoo but still a very wide area). At the rapids, however, you can only use one rod, and should not be bottom fishing (pohjaonki) anyway, as live bait is not allowed - if you catch for example salmonoid that needs to released there is a higher chance the fish has taken the hook too deep to survive.
That link is useful above and good information. More info in English you can find YouTube and you can see how to fish there and how those places look like.
There is English subtitles in these videos (Vantaanjoki theme):
My opinion is that the best season is starting soon in river.
