Angling & Fishing in Nepal

Angling & Fishing In Nepal: (Code:555)
Be a “Responsible Angler”, always follow the “Catch & Release”                                       
Trout Fishing and angling could become a very enjoyable sport that is if you’ve got plenty of time in hand and loads of patience. This eco friendly sport is not for those who run out of patience every time they lose a fish or get tired forwaiting for their catch! Hardly any anglers round the world have any idea that India makes a wonderful paradise for anglers. And why not! With the so many rivers, streams are numerous to catch fish especially trout and Mahseer in the foothill region of the Nepal Himalayas. In Nepal, the migration run of the mahseer starts in early spring, usually after the first pre-monsoon rains have muddied the water for the first time after the winter season, usually around late February/early March. The best angling spots during these early months are in the Koshi, Narayani, and Karnali where these rivers flow out of the Siwalik range into the plains of the Tarai. Chisapani on the Karnali, Devghat on the Narayani, and Chatara on the Koshi are the places to be to catch the first of the mahseer after their long winter lull.
WHEREVER YOU FISH, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE MAHSEER IN NEPAL HAVE BECOME EXTREMELY THREATENED AND WHEN YOU CATCH THEM, THEY ARE ON THEIR SPAWNING RUN, SO DO HANDLE THEM WITH CARE AND RELEASE YOUR CATCH AND BE A RESPONSIBLE ANGLER!
The mahseer migrate up every tributary of these four rivers to distant nooks and corners of the Mahabharat range. Where these rivers flow, there you will find mahseer. However, the upper limit of their upstream range seems to end somewhere along the boundary between the Mahabharat range and the beginning of the higher Himalayan ranges around 2,000 meters above sea level.The months between March and May is the best time to fish farther upriver. Locals fish throughout the monsoon, fishing with live bait (fish, frogs and worms) when the water is murky. However, for a veteran angler, such methods would be highly unsporting and besides, weather conditions are extremely unfriendly and the rivers too unpredictable to be out there during the monsoon. So the veteran angler will wait out the monsoon and hit the rivers with their spoons and crank baits once the rains subside and the rivers begin to clear up, around September and October, to try their luck once again on the returning stocks of mahseer which head downriver for their winter recluse. We organize fishing trips in streams close to Kathmandu or far from the Kathmandu.

Anglers can try their luck in the clear waters of Pokhara’s lakes as well. While Phewa Tal offers some good sport, there is considerable activity and is not the ideal place for a quiet day’s fishing. Begnas Tal and Rupa Tal are a better bet. Get out there on any of several local buses that start plying early morning or bike your way there. You can hire a boat and go out to some of the good spots in the lake
