The Pentäsjoki water system has its beginnings in the streams that bring water to the lake Pentäsjärvi in the southwestern parts of Pajala municipality. Here you can get there by boat on a mile-long stretch. The stream system passes a few smaller villages along its way towards the Torne River and grows in size as more watercourses join. Soon after the stream crosses the border with Övertorneå municipality, it joins Aapuajoki, which has a trout stock worthy of protection. Several longer rapids are found along the stretch where the availability of grayling is often good. Between the rapids there are calmer seals where you can fish for watchful fish or catch larger pikes and sometimes perch. In Neistenkangas/Pello, the Pentäsjoki finally flows into the Torneälven, where the migrating sea trout begin their journey up the stream. In Pentäsjoki you fish grayling, trout, pike, perch etc. You fish from beaches with old forest, marshes, meadows and heath. In the forest there are animals such as moose, reindeer, lynx and bear. Along the eastern side of Pentäsjoki there is a partially paved snowmobile/hiking trail with barbecue cabins and an overnight cabin with a sauna. Older bridges and stone cairns that were built for the needs of rafting remain to this day. There are car roads adjacent to the stream, but if you want to get to the more remote parts, you have to expect some hiking.
