The rapid Pihlaiskosket consists of four separate rapids and of the river and quiet water areas in between them. The rapids are situated between lakes Pihlajavesi and Kuusijärvi. Starting from the top, the rapids are: Kanavakoski, Pihlaiskoski, Vääräkoski and Kuuskoski. The last two rapids have been used for general fishing purposes only for a couple of years. The total length of the fishing ground is 2,2 km, so you can actually do some hiking too while fishing. The area begins with the short rapid Kanavakoski, which resembles a channel. However, the rapid does offer plenty of lodges for fish. Immediately below the rapid there is a deep pit, where you can find rainbow trout in particular. The rapid Pihlaiskoski begins after about 200 metres of quiet water area. It is the steepest and the most foaming rapid in the fishing ground. Therefore, it is a bit difficult to fish there especially in the middle of the rapid. A bridge crosses the rapid and there is a fireplace on the shore of the rapid. The rapid Vääräkoski, which is about 500 metres long, begins immediately after the rapid Pihlaiskoski. The fact that it is the most slowly-flowing rapid in the area makes it suitable for fishing. After the rapid Vääräkoski, there is a 400 metres long quiet water area called Pitkäsuvanto, which ends up in the rapid Kuuskoski, which is the last rapid in the area. There is a bridge across the rapid. You can see the whole area of the waterfall to the fireplace, which is located at the shore of the rapid. There are rainbow trout and lake trout in the rapids Pihlaiskosket. The fish in the rapids are mainly planted, but sometimes you can catch big andromous lake trout, which have come to Pihlaiskosket from lakes Pihlajavesi and Kuusijärvi. Several lake trout weighting over 5kg have been caught on the rapids Pihlaiskosket. The rapids Pihlaiskosket are located in the middle of wilderness and there are no buildings on the shores. You can reach the rapids with a car only in a couple of spots, and even then you have to walk to get to the rapids. After the rapids are cleaned out during the next couple of years, they will be even better for fishing than before. it is easy to buy fishing permits for the rapids Pihlaiskosket: There is a shelter called Kokonkota in the beginning of road Kokinmäentie, from where you can buy fishing permits from a machine.
