A Mighty Jump

Driven by their instinct to return to their birthplace, the trouts from Paanajärvi Lake come to spawn to the headwaters of the Oulankajoki River. On their journey they must struggle to get through the tumult of the Kiutaköngäs Rapids. Their rise is successfull in July when the water is at an opportune level. The trouts jump mostly from the same spot. On the best days you can see tens of jumps.
