Juutua is 10km long and flows in medium clear water into the western end of the great Inari lake in Finnish Lapland.
The river has strong population of exceptionally large lake trouts and brown trouts. Several over 10kg trouts have been reported over the years and due to strict fishing rules; the fish population has a bright future.
Fishing season starts at first of June and goes on to the end of August. Juutua offers quality fishing for all three summer months for the one who knows where to fish and with what. Basic rule is, that big trout is predatorous fish…and that’s also the fun fact.
Services around the river are good and it is easy to reach.
There is none like Juutua.

– In the summer there is a lot of room in the hotels so you get to choose a river- or lake side hotel.
– Everyone would respect that if you release your brownie catch. Still you can take 3 trouts for a license without offending anyone.
– Grey chars were planted in Inari lake and are now threatening the original brown trouts excistence. There you do a favour to brownies when you eat a char. June is the main season for ”the greys”, but good for brownies too.
– You can bring your own fishing gears, but we have what you need.
– Closest Airport is just 50km away; Ivalo Airport.
You get to eat a lot at the river side. Food is mostly made on open fire and you can even make wishes to what to have. Still main plan is to eat a lot of self caught fish and local food.
There will most likely be other fishermen at the river too, but we can always find a good spot that haven’t recently been fished. Still it can be a good option to just stay fishing one pool and wait the trout’s to return from their lake run.
Every fishermen has their favorite time to fish, but there isn’t any specific hour that had been better than others at Juutua. It is the amount of fishing hours that makes the difference. It is common that the trout strikes your fly right away when they meet.
It depends of the water level that where it is good to fish. Most of the pools take some wading to reach the right casting spot, but some pools are easy to fish from the shoreline as well.
