The river Soutujoki is wading in a canyon between sandy ridges. The forest there is in its natural state and therefore the atmosphere is so wild there. The scenery there is like in Kuusamo. The density of bear population is the highest in Central Finland and it is easy to true when hiking in the forest. The fishing ground of rapid Palsankoski consists of three rapids Palsankoski, Housukoski, and Käpykoski. The fishing ground is about two kilometres long the fall is about 20 metres. The fishing ground begins about 250 metres above the bridge. The steep rapid is about 100 metres long and the bottom of the rapid is rocky. It is not easy to fish there. A little river where fishing is also allowed in the last part joins the river Housujoki. 250 metres after the rapid Palsankoski begins the 180-metre-long rapid Housukoski. A footbridge crosses the rapid. After a short quiet water area begins the rapid Käpykoski which is 220 metres long. In the last 600 metres of the fishing ground there are slowly currents and quiet water areas. At rapid Palsankoski it has been made efforts for fishermen’s satisfaction. On the beautiful bank there is well taken care of lean-on. For smoking there is also a possibility. In the area there is spring as well as a 1,5-kilometre-long nature trail around the area. A suspension bridge crosses the rapid. In summer 1998 there has been built a cottage which the fishermen’s can rent. The salmonoids populations is taken care of with size limit rainbow trout and lake trout plantations. The water of the river Soutujoki is quite humous and therefore the spawning of salmonoids is not successful. On the river there is only available 24-hours permits and the prices are low.
