The lakes, rivers, and even sea are wonderful places for any fishing enthusiast. Take some slow time to join Japanese anglers on the water. Lake Ashi has bass fishing and smelt fishing in the winter. The Hayakawa River and Sukumo River has fishing areas for river trout and are also a popular place to try Ayu fishing, a traditional form of fishing popular in Japan. The trout fishing camps are in Miyagino or near Hatajuku.
