Completed in September 1965, Geumgwang Lake is a V-shaped valley lake and is a famous winter smelt fishing site. Transportation is convenient since it is located near the roads. Both pedestal fishing and coastal fishing are popular. During the spawning season in spring, a lot of Carassius cuvieri are caught from the weed-bed in the uppermost stream, During the summer season, more fish are caught from the midstream or lower stream than from the uppermost stream. Point movements are also easy.
