Lake Matildanjärvi

Lake Matildanjärvi is a fishing destination situated within the Teijo hiking area in Southwest Finland. The lake is about 1.7 kilometres long and 0.5 kilometres wide. There is an island and a few smaller islets in the middle of the lake.

As a fishing destination, Matildanjärvi suits the whole family. The shores of the lake are easy to traverse and there are plenty of services nearby.

Rainbow trout is planted into the lake regularly. Pike and perch are also plentiful in Matildanjärvi. The colour of the water is dark brown.

Fishing from a boat is recommended, although you may also fish from the shore. If you choose to fish from land, try the shores on the south side. They are more accessible and have plenty of nice fishing spots.

Many anglers consider rowboat trolling to be the best way of catching fish in Matildanjärvi. Use small plugs and spoons. You should row along the shorelines as rainbow trout like to circle the lake in schools.

There are several campfire sites and lean-to shelters around the lake. If you are on a boat you might enjoy taking your break at the lean-to placed in the middle of the lake's island. Boats may be rented from the adjacent Nature Centre.
