The fishing ground of Pihtipudas consists of lakes Kolimajärvi, Alvajärvi, Muurasjärvi, Saanijärvi and Elämäjärvi. Kolimajärvi, which is the biggest one of these five lakes, empties into lake Keitele through the waterway of the rapids Kärnänkosket. Lake Kolimajärvi is oligotrophic and deep. The deepest place is at Houninsyvänne, where the lake is 66 metres deep. The conditions are suitable for lake trout and freshwater salmon. A lot of fish have been stocked in the lake and therefore there are plenty of big salmonoids. The name of Kolima has often been associated with many winning fish in the “Suurin Kala” fishing competition. The lake is well-known for fishermen who are trolling because there are yearly trolling competitions. Lake Kolima is an open lake with few islands and some ranges of rocks. The depth varies between different parts of the lake. There are a lot of banks and there are often plenty of fish. There are only base maps with contour lines of the lake. Navigation routes haven’t been marked on lake Kolima, nor are there any man-made places for taking a break. However, there are plenty of uninhabited shores where you can relax for a while. You can launch your own boat at the north and south ends of the lake. Lake Alvajärvi is the second largest lake of the fishing ground. The lake is long and narrow. The lake is a big open lake with few islands. The water in lake Alvajärvi is more brown and more eutrophic than lake Kolima. There are two launching places for boats at the village of Pihtipudas. There are no man-made places to have a break on lake Alvajärvi. Lake Muurasjärvi, which is a lot like lake Alvajärvi, is bit deeper than lake Alvajärvi.
