The main prizee of the competition is worth more than €1000 and there are also other top prizes for those who participated in the competition. We will publish the entire list of awards in the near future here and on Lapinkoski's Instagram and Facebook.

Below are important reforms for this year's competition and our recommendations for salmon fishing in Simojoki overall.

✅ the lenght of the salmon is enough, the fish is not weighed


✅ We recommend that all salmon over 110 cm long be released. This guarantees healthy salmon stocks for the future in Simojoki!


✅ We recommend releasing all female fish at least at the end of the season. This guarantees healthy salmon stocks for the future in Simojoki!


✅ take a catch photo of the fisherman and the salmon, preferably by the water, and send it to us at info@lapinkoski.fi or to Lapinkoski txt/watsup 0453327932. Note! pictures sent to us may be used in our social media publications or other materials later.

With a catch photo and measurement information, you can participate in the 2024 salmon contest! You don't need to mention the place of catch, the salmon from Simojoki is sufficient as information. If possible, take a scale sample from the salmon and deliver it to the restaurant in Lohiranta, where we will deliver it to Luke. In this way, you support the important research work of Simojoki salmon.

We will publish the prizes and these rules soon on our Facebook and Instagram channels www.facabook.com/lapinkoskioy and www.instagram.com/lapinkoskioy. Stay tuned!
