Roddbåtarna vid roddlederna är utlagda för sommarenJun 20
Nu är roddbåtarna utplacerade vid Länsstyrelsens tre roddleder vid Sitojaure, Laidaure och Jäckvik. Båtarna tas upp för vintern innan isläggning, dock senast 25 september. Kom ihåg att det alltid måste finnas en båt på varje sida om vattnet om du använder båtarna. Det kan innebära att rodden måste göras tre gånger. Även båtarna i Dievssajávri är utlagda.
