Pond Teerilampi is located near the Seitseminen National Park in the Pirkanmaa region. The pond makes for a great place to stop for a few hours as you visit the national park, for example. The parking lot is situated on the northern shore of the pond. From there you can easily get to fishing even with small children.
Pond Teerilampi is approximately 500 metres long and 50 metres wide. A trail circles the oblong pond and duckboards have been laid over the difficult parts of the terrain. Wooden casting platforms have been built at even intervals on the shores of the pond for easy access. The use of boats or flotation devices is prohibited at Teerilampi.
The primary target fish of the pond is rainbow trout. The pond also has perch as a native species. Casting, fly fishing and using a fishing pole without a reel are the allowed fishing methods. During the winter Teerilampi may be used for ice fishing.
The best seasons for fishing in Teerilampi are early summer and autumn when the waters are a bit cooler. That is when you will catch fish throughout the sunlight hours. In the summer when the water is warm the fishing should focus on early morning or dusk. The best ice fishing season is early in the winter when there is not much ice or snow.
Casting anglers should choose smaller spoons and spinners with long casting distances. You can fish and walk your way around the pond in an hour or two. Many experienced anglers pay attention to the wind and choose their spots on the windward shore. The wind moves the waves and the waves carry insects that then attract rainbow trout.
The terrain surrounding Teerilampi offers plenty of opportunities for picking berries and mushrooms. The campfire site and lean-to shelter at the south end of the pond are a great setting for a break during the day outdoors. The cooking shelter at the north end near the parking lot is a fine place for a little breather as well.
