The River Kuomio flows almost in the middle of the village Kuomiokoski but still in its own peace. The river can't be called a shoot because the flow in the river is very slow. Still you can find a special atmosphere at the Kuomio.

In addition to standard species of fish - bleak, roach, pike and perch - it's possible to catch planted (0,5-4 kg) rainbow trout. Enjoy your time at the River Kuomio.
