Live: Watch 2,000-year-old ice fishing in NE China's Chagan Lake
Updated 21:37, 24-Dec-2020

Winter fishing season has come once again to Chagan Lake in northeast China's Jilin Province. Each winter, local fishermen use a centuries-old technique to catch fish as temperatures fall from -20 to -30 degrees Celsius. Each fishing crew can only cast their net once a day since the traditional fishing method is very time-consuming. As the fishing season continues, local fishermen will slowly approach the center of the lake, where the highest number of fish are typically caught.
