Nanako Lake (Smelt fishing on the Ice)

In February every year, you can enjoy ice fishing Japanese smelt at Nanako Lake of the Oshida Dam at Okuyama, Ichinohe town.
Due to the nutrient-rich water, the lake is not home to black bass but contains many large smelts.
Other than fishing equipment and tent rentals, the staff on-site provides various types of support to allow even beginners to enjoy stress-free smelt fishing.
