This permit covers the running and quiet waters and rapids of the middle section of the Iijoki River from
Koivukoski to the Ervasti Bridge. The total length of the permit area is 53.5 km. The most common catches in
the area are sizable grayling and trout. The most common catch in the quiet sections is pike. The rapids in
the middle section of Iijoki are great for fly fishing for grayling, for example. There are several lean-to shelters
and campfire sites in the area and anglers may also catch a breather at the Räpättävänkoski hut. The river's
fish stock is managed with fry plantings of trout and grayling.

At Jurmukoski rapids there is a 650 metres long private water area on the western bank that extends halfway
across the river that is not a part of the permit area.
