Travel Tips

The fishing has now become a winter feature at around Lake Yogo. Since it was a bit warmer day than usual on that day, the result was not necessarilly good and the size of the fish was not so satisfactory, either. They say that the full-scale season will be from now, when the water temperature gets much colder. You can expect more than 100 smelts a day, I bet!
