Fishing

Kemi is an easy destination to reach and there are many opportunities for fishing right by the town centre!
The general recreational fishing area of Kemi continues to be a rarity. Also referred to as "the living room of the people from Kemi", the inner harbour enables many types of fishing for the price of the fisheries management fee alone. There is no need for additional fishing licences from the owners of the waters.
