Angling Tour India
Welcome to the home of angling in India. Famous among travellors as country of surprise, India is been home to various civilizations in the past 10000 years. Its a land of diversified culture & languages. We invites you for a different surprise of this place.
Some of the important places in India for freshwater fishing are in Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, and Jammu & Kashmir.
Streams feeding the Beas River in the Kullu Manali region are well known for Brown Trout. The cold mountain streams are well suited for trout, and are home to some of the biggest varieties of Trout. The best beats are at Larji valley, situated on the confluence of the river Larji and Tirthan. Sainj, which is also a trout stream, flows on the other side. If you choose to rough it, tented accommodation along the riverbanks is an option to consider. Travelers need to carry all the necessary equipment. One day permit costs Rs 100 only.
License can be obtained from the fisheries office in Patikhul (situated between Kullu and Manali) or, from Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation Marketing Office The Mall, Manali-175131 (Phone: 01901-52175).
Dodital Lake nestled among the snow-clad peaks in the Uttarkashi Himalayas is a fresh water lake and a tempting trout pool, where you can get a good catch, during all seasons. The forest rest house at Dodital and Barkot are ideal for the night stay.
Other options for fishing Mahseer in Uttar Pradesh are in the Ramganga and the Sharda rivers in the range of Jim Corbett National Park. You can also go to Rishikesh that offers good fishing sites.
The best season to go trout-fishing in the south of India is from April to September. Accommodation is available at the forests bungalows. One can even go camping, if the idea is to have some fin and adventure. Cauvery Fishing Lodge near Mysore is a great place to catch Mahseer. In Kerala streams around the hill stations of Munnar are ideal for fishing.
Kashmir- with its network of rivers, streams and high altitude lakes, all abounding in trout, both brown and rainbow, has been rightly defined as an 'angler's paradise'. Trout fishing in Kashmir is far cheaper than it is in other parts of the world. Government departments are ensuring that there should not be any depletion of stock by discriminate fishing. Major points of angling in the state are the Indus and Lidder rivers, their tributaries and a network of smaller rivers and streams. The best time for fishing here are early mornings and late evenings. There is an, 'ideal' fishing permit that allows you to fish exclusively, in a beat of 2 km.
One permit allows you to catch six fish. Six days a week permits are issued only to tourists. If you are more adventurous, you can fish in one of many high altitude lakes (14,000 ft. above sea level), which can be reached by trekking. One trek, in particular, starts from Sonmarg and goes on to Vishansar, Kishansar, Satsar, Gadsar and Gangabal all alpine lakes. During winters when the lake surface is frozen, the fish (mainly brown trout) keeps close to the bottom of the lake, rising nearer the surface, as the ice melts. In these lakes, unlike other places, the use of spoons and spinners is allowed. The trekking season is from July to October while the fishing season extends from March to October.
Main sites for fishing in Arunachal Pradesh are Bhalukpong and Tipi on the river Kameng, Pashighat on the river Siang, and Tezu on the river Lohit.

There are four principle coasts where sea fishing may be undertaken: Goa and the Kerala coast, Lakshadweep Islands, Orissa and Andaman Islands.
Goa & Kerala
The sea fishing region of Goa and the Kerala coast extends from the beach resort of Goa to Thiruvananthapuram along the long southwest coast. The local boatmen and the local travel agents can give empirical information on the best fishing areas. The main ports in the area are Goa, Mangalore, Cochin and Thiruvananthapuram.
Lakshadweep Islands in the Arabian Sea are rich in game fish including sharks, barracuda, blue marlin, kulvel and groupers. Hotel, and other accommodation is available at Bangaram Island.
On India's east coast, Orissa offers unique game fishing in its largest brackish water lake called Chilka. It is rich in Tiger Prawn, Tuna and other varieties of fish. Chilka Lake is also known for migratory bird life, which can be of much interest to ornithologists.
