Liu 刘, a resident, told the reporter that the lake’s water level had dropped, creating an excellent opportunity for fishing.

He added that the lake’s water level dropped at the weekend, and even if people were sitting still in the water, they would be surrounded by fish. As a result, many people rushed from other places to fish.
