CAMP ONKA

DOWNLOAD BROCHURE
Experience the vast wilderness and first class salmon fishing of the majestic Lainio river, home to the mighty wild Baltic Salmon. 
 
Camp Onka was developed in 2013, as an eco camp deep within the forest overlooking the famous Onka home pool. Here we have exclusive double bank fishing on 7km of water split into 3 beats named Lipistökoski - Upper, Onka - Middle & Phatakoski - Lower. ​Each beat is qouted to four guests a day and our programme alternates between beats every day so guests can fish all 3 two times during their stay.


Fishing is accesible from both sides of the river via dirt tracks and foot paths through the forest. We also have a traditional wooden rowing boat situated at the Onka home pool to quickly access both sides of the river during the fishing day. Included in our programme are three working ghillies who will guide and assist you on the water throughout your stay.
 
Average weight for fly caught salmon here is 15 lbs, while fish running into the 30-40+ lbs class are not uncommon. Be ready for an adventure hiking, wading and swinging flies in our vast picturesque waters.​

CAMP ONKA TACKLE & TECHNIQUE
RODS
Most common set up is 14’ #9 or 15’ #10. We use single hand rods from 9-10 feet, # 6-12. Double hand rods from 11-15 feet, # 6-12.

LINES

We typically use shooting heads in full floating down to heaviest sinking. The majority of our fishing is with floating, intermediate, Sink 1 & Sink 2. High water temperatures may call for full floating lines with long leaders and high, fast flowing or cold water conditions may call for Sink 3, Sink 4, Sink 5’s in the tip sections with a floating, intermediate or light sinking belly. Our 2 must have lines are Float / Intermediate and SInk 1/ Sink 2. But you can’t have too many lines!

LEADERS & TIPPETS
10-20 feet tapered leaders with a tippet between 0,25mm. and 0,50 mm. Colder waters expect leaders as short as 4 feet. Tippet spools from 0,25 mm. - 0,50 mm. We reccomend good Nylon as Fluorocarbon tends to let many of our guests down.

SALMON FLIES
The most important thing is that you believe in the fly! The name of the fly comes second. Make sure you bring flies in sizes from 2 cm-10 cm. Bigger flies can be used in high and cold water during June. Make sure your hooks are strong and sharp! Popular patters that regularly work here are: Banana - Phatakorva - Silver Garry - Sunray - The Usual - Willie Gunn - Thunder & Lightening - Kinermony Killer

CLOTHING
Layers are definitely the key! You will need warm underwear and thick socks wool is the best. A warm hat and a warm down or primaloft jacket for the cold evenings. Waders and a wading jacket or any other type of shell jacket for your water proof layer.

DONT FORGET
Mosquito spray or roll on repellent such as "Jungle Oil" is strongly advised. A wading staff is always good to have on hand and a camera for the special moments!
