Being a traditional fishing ground for centuries there are so many popular varieties of fish like Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Bull eyed Mackerel, smaller Trevally and Barracudas. Also, fishermen around Bolgoda Lake still use a very primitive fishing technique called "Ja-Kotuwa" for fishing prawns. 'Ja kotuwa ' made with bamboo dividers erected in the middle of the lake, is a kind of trap, which will be illuminated with kerosene oil bottle lamps in the night. it allows your no fishing companions to relax in comfort till you come back with the day’s catch.
