Recently, Mr. Liu, a citizen of Lu’an City, Anhui Province, said that the water level of Chengxi Lake had dropped sharply, this attracted tens of thousands of people to catch fish, and fish surrounded people sitting in the water. The scene was spectacular.
On September 26, Mr. Liu said that due to the weather and the opening of the gates, the water level of Chengxi Lake dropped significantly, and fishing has been going on for nearly half a month now.
“Chengxi Lake is an artificial lake. This is the first time it has dried up since its construction. It is a once-in-a-century fishing opportunity.” About a week ago, he made a special trip to fish from a distance of several hundred kilometers.
According to Mr. Liu, the best fishing spots are distributed in sections due to the opening of the gates. In the first few days of catching fish, the harvest was not great because there was a lot of water, although there were many people catching fish. The first two days coincided with the weekend, there was little water in the lake, and when people sat in the water without moving, there were fish around. Many people came to fish from other places. Mr. Liu estimated that the flow of people could reach 100,000. “At that time, there was a big traffic jam, and the traffic police came to the scene to direct the traffic.”
Mr. Liu said that when he and his friends came on the first day, they went to the lake to fish in person, and later bought fish directly for friends in their hometown.
“There are too many people fishing at the scene, and the car can’t drive to the lake. And the fish is too cheap, only a few cents per kilogram. Most people don’t sell fish by the kilogram, and a sack of about 50 kilograms was sold for fifty or sixty yuan. Many people can’t even take the fish with them after they catch them, they can only leave the fish where they are.
At present, due to the continuous decline of the water level of Chengxi Lake, the fish caught are mainly dead fish, and the fishing has entered the final stage.
