Maaselänlahti bay is a fishing venue located near Kuusamo town centre, on Lake Iijärvi.
Maaselänlahti bay was used as a final log floating point between Lakes Kuusamojärvi and Iijärvi before World War II. It is easy to fish with a hook and line from the bank of an old walkway which still circles in the area. The water is quite shallow, but there is a good chance of catching smallish perch at Maaselänlahti bay. With a rod and reel, a caster may also catch pike from among the water vegetation near the shore. At Maaselänlahti there is a boat slipway and a lean-to shelter for grilling sausages. There is also an outhouse and a spacious parking lot in the area.
