In Ocheon, you can easily enjoy the fishing in the near sea without going to the remote seas because there are a lot of fishing points around nearby Woldo, Janggodo, Hyojado and Wonsando.

The sea in front of Ocheon is connected to the south part of Anmyondo, Wonsando, etc and 78 islands and the area under the sea are very wide so that it becomes the good habitat for fish and shell.
