Wakasagi Fishing

Maebashi, Akagi, Kiryu, Ota, Tatebayashi Area

From September through November, you can enjoy wakasagi boat fishing at Lake Onuma on Mt. Akagi-yama. We especially recommend wakasagi ice fishing in the winter. In January, you can drill a hole through the completely frozen Lake Onuma surface and drop down a line to fish for wakasagi. Fishing rods, simple tents, and other equipment can be rented at stores on the shores of the lake. The average temperature by the lake is very cold at 10–15⁰C below zero during the winter. Make sure to dress warmly.
