I would love to confirm but due to hectic schedule unable to plan a trip at the moment. You go ahead and finalise your plans. Hope to meet you there.
I had just received a mail from the person running a camp there. I was pleased to see their work towards building a Mahseer Sanctuary around Panchsehwar.
The same person reminded me of the sorry state of affairs around Corbett National Park because the waters leased to businesses are not being conducted in the true spirit of sport fishing. The problems are - [a] poaching by villagers, [b] killing of Mahseer by anglers, [c] killing of large Mahseer by mishandling by guides and [d] no audit taking place on how the Mahseer fishery is faring after the "experimental" lease for 30 years!! was started.
If you have the time please do write to the Field Director, Corbett National Park, at
Corbett Tiger Reserve, P.O. Ramnagar
District Nanital Uttaranchal, <http://projecttiger.nic.in/corbett.htm>
