Driving instrutions to Myllykoski (In Jaala)
When driving on road 15 in direction of Kotka-Heinola, turn right a few km before Jaale (Tuohikotti/Verla/Selänpää). After about 2 km you will reach the fishing area (bridge over the river).
Sonnanjoki river consists of several rapids that have local fishing restrictions. There are parking area, campfire site, toilets and a notice board in Myllykoski. 3 rapids flow downstream from Myllykoski (1 km) and 2 rapids upstream (Kanto- and Jukakoski rapids). The rapids are shallow and lack water in late summer (pictures are taken in late summer). There is a map that shows how to get to Kanto and Jukakoski by car.
