After the relaxing cycling trip two weeks ago, I wanted to once again take my bike and head into the Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area. And pretty much as two weeks before the aim was to do some camping and fishing – just this time at lake Retkajärvi.
With the good memories on the area around the lakes Maattojärvet in the Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area from last autumn, with a friend we decided to go there over a weekend for some fishing.
After the very warm May, snow has rapidly disappeared. Much more, since weeks there has been hardly any precipitation, making the ground very dry. In fact, since days a forest fire warning is in place (for the entire Finland, btw.). Thus, making a camp fire is not possible currently. Good that we didn’t catch fish at Luovuomajärvi last night, when I went there fishing with some friends. Despite not grilling fish (or any other food) at the lake, we spent a nice evening sitting at the lake, watching and listening to birds, and enjoying the polar day.
