Lakes R-M-P - bright troika in south-eastern part of Tampere Region

Rocky islands of Lake Roine are splendid fishing sites in the autumn.

Lakes Roine, Mallasvesi and Pälkänevesi are limpid basins with sounds and rocky islands that offer intriguing grounds for catching pike, zander and perch.

The waters of Lake Längelmävesi flow into Lake Roine through Kaivanto Canal. The area off Kaivanto is special stream fishing site with own fishing permits. Area below Kaivanto where stream join Lake Roine is a renowned zander site where also a bright trout can hit the lure on a lucky day.

Bay waters and rocky shores brimming with pike

In some places, the shoreline of Lake Roine is very rocky. There are also shallow and extensive reedy areas on the western shore and in the bay and sound waters of Saarikylät islands. Lake Mallasvesi is very rocky, in particular off the Town of Valkeakoski; the shoreline becomes more even towards the Town of Pälkäne. The water quality in Lake Mallasvesi is among the best of all the major lakes in the region.

Pike can be pursued in bay waters in early summer and from rocky shores and places with aquatic vegetation in the summer and autumn. The Tossanselkä area of Lake Roine, the sounds of Saarikylät islands and the western part of Lake Mallasvesi are home to plenty of shoals where pike hunt for their prey.

The zander stock is stronger in Lake Roine. In the summer, zander can be pursued by trolling on top of deep mid-lake waters and using soft plastic jigs at bank spots. The Tossanselkä area is a good zander site, as evidenced by the names of two shoals in the middle of the area, Kuhakarit (‘Zander Shoals’) and Kuhakivet (‘Zander Rocks’).

In recent years, anglers have caught even quite sizeable zander in Lake Mallasvesi, but the zander stock is generally not as strong as on the Lake Roine side.

Good perch fishing in summer and winter

These lakes are sure-fire perch fishing grounds and the area is currently home to sizeable perch. Perch weighing half to one kilo is possible here. In the winter, it’s worth going after perch using jigging lures − balanced jigging lures especially for the big ones − in these limpid lakes in relatively deep water, even at more than 10 metres.

The deepest areas of Lake Mallasvesi lie between Myttäälä and Äimälä. The lake’s game species include whitefish and it also has good stocks of bream. Lake Mallasvesi is connected to another large limpid lake, Pälkänevesi, through River Kostianvirta. With many islands Lake Pälkänevesi offers a great fishing environment with a natural beauty.

Crayfish pots yield nice catches of signal crayfish on these lakes. Lake Pälkänevesi was one of the first larger lakes where signal crayfish stock grew remarkable. Signal crayfish was stocked there already in 1970s.
