Water traffic and fishing

Rapids and fishing

Oulujoki- river and Kiiminkijoki-river – two of the biggest rivers that flow through Utajärvi – are quite distinct from each other. The power plants of Oulujoki-river and calm fishing possibilities form a convenient counterbalance for the raging rapids of Kiiminkijoki-river and active trout base. Clean nature that spreads over the whole county creates a unique atmosphere and especially the protected areas attract a lot of experience seekers.
