Juhani Aho, a Finnish author, made Huopanankoski well-known for Finnish fishermen with the novels he wrote in the beginning of the 20th century. Since then, the rapid has not always been in such a good condition. Nowadays, however, the rapid is is beginning to bloom again due to all the dedicated work done in the area. The rapid itself has been restored and the surroundings of the rapid have been made better. You can still feel the atmosphere of fishing in the good old days at Huopanankoski. Huopana is located on the waterway from Kivijärvi to Keitele. Other rapids on the same route are Hilmonkoski and Keihärinkoski. Lake trout is the most popular fish at Huopana. There is also a natural population of grayling in the rapid.
