The Pyeongchang Trout Festival takes place during winter in the township of Jinbu in Pyeongchang County. Visitors to the festival can enjoy a variety of programs including ice and lure fishing for trout, snow activities, ice activities, folk activities, and more. There will also be traditional folk games including sledding and top spinning, and visitors can try out activities such as riding ATVs, snow rafting, and sleigh trains. Any trout caught from ice fishing and lure fishing can be prepared right away at a nearby restaurant.
Trout farming first started in Pyeongchang due to its cold, clear waters. Trout offer plenty of nutrition, and their natural taste makes them delicious when eaten raw.
