With a long coastline and rich waters, indulge in the best fishing tours in India while you’re here. Angling is more than just a hobby. You’ve got to have the right skill-set and knack for proper fishing. You also need to be at the right location. There are many popular fishing sites in India. Ramganga River, Corbett National Park has waters teeming with Brown Trout, Mahseer and Goonch. Fishing here requires permission from the DFO. The Neral fishing spot near Mumbai-Pune is an idyllic picnic locale but surprisingly, conducive to professional angling! Catch here includes Prawn, Rohu and Carla. Panchkeshwar in Mahakali River, Uttarakhand offers the rare Night-Fishing experience. The Kosi River in the same state is rich in Mahseer fish. For an out-and-out adventure, go to Andaman. Luckily, Andaman is rich in marine life because commercial fishing is not allowed here.
The islands allow you to choose the reef you wish to fish from. Catch-size at Andaman is gigantic! For English species of trout, especially Rainbow and German trout, visit Kashmir. Kashmir is popular for Seasonal Spring Fishing. Its three most important streams are Kokernag, Sukhnag and Verinag. Himachal Pradesh recognises two genres of the activity: General and Trout Catching. Pabbar River is famous for Golden Mahseer whereas Tirthan Valley, Semi, Mandil and Tikri abound in trout. Jai Bharoli in Assam is home to the Wild Mahseer, catching which is a battle of wills. In the South, Kaveri River, Karnataka, offers amazing catch. However, you need a permit from the Coorg Wildlife Association. Coastal fish like Pomfret, Sardines, Tuna and Mackerel are available in the Elephant Lake zone and Munnar streams of Kerala.
