I had a gentleman contact me through my site asking fishing related questions for his upcoming trip to Japan. In his email he mentioned that his visit to Fujigoko would coincide with the sockeye salmon season opener, which I found surprising as I had no idea sockeye salmon could be found in the Fujigoko.
I came across this article that says that Lake Sai is famous for salmon fishing. A quick google of 紅鱒 西湖 returns no further information though. I’m gonna keep digging. Anyone have any insight on this?
