Crowds of people participate in winter fishing and buy fishes to greet the Spring Festival.

As temperatures drop sharply and freezing cold weather sweeps over Hunan, lakes enter winter fishing season for three months. On January 9, Dahu Aquaculture Company Limited launched a large winter fishing event on East Lake in Huarong County of Yueyang City. Nearly 1,000 neighboring fishermen and tourists were attracted to share the bumper harvest.
