The Pizhma flows southeast out of the Yamozero Lake, turns east and then north and joins the Pechora River at Ust-Tsilma, where the Tsilma River also joins the Pechora. The river freezes up in late October or early November and stays icebound until late April or early May. The Pizhma is navigable along its lower reaches.
