Allowed fishing methods at the river are fly fishing and spinning.

The river Moksinjoki is situated in a peaceful place in wilderness and there are natural fish. The dark-watered river is about 11,5 km long and the total height difference is 46 metres. The river Moksinjoki begins from a small lake called Moksinjärvi, which gets its water from lake Kiesimenjärvi. The rapids Kuusikosket, which are very suitable for fishing, are located about 1 kilometre below lake Moksinjärvi. There is a 4 km long quiet water area below the rapids. This part of the river is where a lot of grayling and pike can be found. The first big rapid after the quiet water area is the rapid Myllykoski. There is a cottage for rent at the shore of the rapid. There is a lean-on for fishermen below the rapid. The rapid Myllykoski flows into the rapid Jyrkkäkoski, the last big rapid in the area. After this, the are little rapids, currents and quiet water areas before the the river ends in lake Vihanninjärvi. Lake Vihanninjärvi empties into lake Karankajärvi via the river Vihanninjoki. The river Vihanninjoki flows through thge village of Vihanti and there are more settlements than on the rapid Moksinjoki. However, there is plenty of room for fishermen on the river. The river Vihanninjoki is two kilometres long and its biggest rapid is Pulkkisenkoski. There are also several smaller rapids and currents in the river. The rivers will be kept as untouched as possible. Nearly all fish in the rivers are wild because only a few plantings have been made so far. Lake trout in the river also come from the rapids Karakoski, Heijostenkoski, and Kouheroistenkoski. Several lake trout weighting over 1 kg have been caught in the rivers. There are also a lot of 40 cm long grayling from the old plantings in the river. There are a lot of pike in quiet water areas of the rivers. UL tackles are excellent on the river. There is a lot of vegetation on the shores, but there are enough places to cast. It is possible to come to the river Moksinjoki along many different lorry roads. It is easier to find the river if you buy a base map (no. 2242 10 Moksinjoki, 2244 01 Vihanninjoki). Fishing on the river is at its easiest from a canoe in the beginning of the summer.
