Jyräänkoski-Jokela consists of two sections: upstream and downstream of Käyrälampi (small lake). Myllykoski flows downstream from Käyrälampi and Paaskoski and Jyräänkoski rapids flow upstream. Myllykoski has a ground dam and is the widest rapid (about 25 m). It is very rocky and has been renovated. There are traces of old dam in Jyräänkoski (see follosing picture). During dry summers it is difficult to catch fish due to little water flow. Fishing area is about 1 km. Fly-fishing and spinning is permitted.
