Kitee-Tohmajoki fishing area covers 6,000 ha. It includes, among others, Kiteenjärvi, Tohmajärvi, Iso Heinäjärvi and Säynejärvi. 

Kiteenjärvi is a shallow, eutrophicated lake.

Kiteenjärvi consists of three parts: Kiteenjärvi, Hyypiänlahti and Päätyenlahti. The actual lake Kiteenjärvi has an area of approximately 900 ha, an average depth of 3 m and maximum depth of 13 m. Hyypiänlahti has an area of approximately 200 ha and a maximum depth of 8 m. Päätyenlahti has an area of approximately 200 ha. The shallow lake is almost grown over. Due to its birdlife, it is a Natura 2000 protected area.

Kiteenjärvi is classified as "eutrophicated" and the lake's water quality as "satisfactory".

Most lake fish species are found in the lake. The most common species are perch, roach, pike and pike-perch. Further species include vendace, burbot and bream. Occasionally catches include brown trout and muksun.

Tohmajärvi is a fairly shallow, eutrophicated lake, parts of which are protected by Natura 2000 or bird protection schemes.

Jänisjoki originates in Tuupovaara, Ilomantsi and Aittojärvi lake in Eno. For many anglers, Jänisjoki begins after the Loitimo lake in Kiihtelysvaara. The river flows through Tohmajärvi and Värtsilä to the Russian border. In Russia, the river flows through Jänisjärvi into Lake Ladoga.

The barren wilderness of the upper stream gradually gives way to lush groves. There are dozens of good rapids fishing places in Jänisjoki.

Along Jänisjoki, there are plenty of open sheds and campfire sites for anglers and hikers. They are used, among others, by walkers on the Paimenpojan polku footpath in Tuupovaara, by paddlers and by snowmobile riders.

The Paimenpojan polku footpath network follows the shores of northern Jänisjoki. In Tohmajärvi, there is another footpath network, Jänispolku. Jänisjoki is suitable for paddlers. There are more than 200 km of lake and river canoe routes on Jänisjoki. Four power plants have to be passed by on shore.

Sääperi lake near the border to Russia is excellent for bird watching from the ground or tower.

Tourist services are available near Jänisjoki.

The nearest shops are in village centres or filling stations at Kovero, Tuupovaara, Tohmajärvi and Niirala.
