Hi Guys, I've been down to the Cauvery twice in the last 2 weeks more on a holiday rather than some serious fishing. Conditions have considerably improved in the last 2 weeks. The water's still high and a bit coloured.

The first rock is now visible at Haira! If anyone knows what I'm talking about they'll know the fishing will start in a couple of weeks. Plan to head back then and see if I can get a couple of decent fish before I have to leave.

Had some small silver mahseer on light line which was a blast last week. Will keep you posted if I do eventually head down.

Tight lines,

Mighty Marlin.

Hi Jeen,

have you opened your Season account here in the UAE or waiting for it to cool a little bit more?
I was out last Sat in Dubai & the only thing around were queenies. Fujairah has been rocking with tuna & dorados (guys have been catching @ 15 to 20 per 4 hr trip). largest dorado taken last week was @ 10kg bull.

All right for some! Saying that can't complain too much as am just about to go to Brazil/Paraguay for 3 weeks after cats, then back to work for 5 weeks and off to India for a month, I'm at Galibore from Dec 26 to Jan 9 and am at Bheemeshwari before that. Will let you know how i get on, but you might be on your way out there as i get back.

I'm going out to Bheemeshwari but only one of them is staying on and coming down to Galibore with me. I know Joe Assassa is definitely out there then (think until about Jan 15), but not sure who else, possibly Alberto Parish (the Spanish bloke who had a 96 a couple of years back).
Obviously John Bailey has a group out sometime around then as well but not sure how many he has going.
You'll have to PM me your mobile number and i can text you to let you know how it is going, i now have mobiles that will work in both camps (need a different network for each though!).

Hi Guys,

I was at Galibore on Oct.19th....did some "joy fishing" at Rainer beach. Landed two small Mahseer.
The river is still running high but the water is looking a lot cleaner.
I will be camping at Monkey Pool soon and will post thereafter.

I camped at Monkey Pool on Oct.31. The river is still high and swift,but the water is clear. The best fish landed was a 3.2 kg Mahseer on Nov. 1st morning.
It is hard to predict, but Bheemeshwari should fish well in December and Galibore in Jan and Feb.
I have asked Jungle Lodges to start feeding operations.

Likewise - thanks for the update - keep them coming please. I'll be at Galibore in mid Jan, so hoping for a good level of water so I can chuck a few lures. Anyone know if the IPL is on in late January?

Jeen,

What is / are Fruit de mers.......I need to be educated.

Just to update all anglers interested in going to Galibore...

Camped downstream of Galibore Nov.17 -20. The river was high but the water was clear despite the unseasonal rains in and around Bangalore.

The three best fish were 22 , 11 and 8 (approx) lbs. landed by Owen.

Fruit De Mer = Fruits of the Sea, it is a French Dish consisting of shellfish and crustaceans...(Scallops, Mussel, Shrimp, Crab etc) Raw or/and cooked (mostly boiled) served cold over ice in shell. It is pretty pleasing to the eye as to the pallet, like a kind of seafood bouquet.

Mudslide and Donkey, sounds like river will be low and you will have to spend 2 weeks sitting on hot rocks down there with the crocodiles and a ball of Ragi. :D

Nobody seem to be fishing Galibore but when I was at Bheemashwari a week back only reports that came through during the gillies meting was 15lbs or so but no firm word on number of anglers. With Bheemashwari water level holding up I'm hoping to nick a week at Galibore beginning of March.

Cheers lads

I had a chat with a fellow WASI member who spent 3 nights fishing at Mutki Pool last week. He had a 22 and 4 -5 fish in double digits were landed by others in the group. A JLR guest had a 77,the best fish from the river this season.

I had a mail from a friend who said that the fish below was caught by Rajender Reddy from Hyderabad at Galibore on 18th Dec. Rajender says it weighed 88 lb.

Just wonder if this is the same fish as the '77' reported earlier? Either way a superb catch and well done to the angler.

Hi Guys,

Just got back from Galibore, fishing from 19 to 25 Dec. We arrived just a day after that big fish was landed.

The fishing was tough. The cyclone created havoc with the weather: cloudy, humid, light drizzle. For the first time for me, mossies were a problem in camp! When we left camp on Xmas day, the level had stabilised a bit. The centre rock at Mudrekal is still under water, tho.

But the real downer was the changing river level. It kept going up and down, almost on a daily basis. Apparently, the authorities were releasing irrigation water upstream at intervals, possibly due to the flooding. Water was still clear.

We were using both ragi and chilwa. Caught loads of small mahseer in the 5 to 12-lb range. Our best fish was a 26-lb black mahseer from the super deep pool of Bonsandram.

Most of the mahseer are congregated at Mudheki channels (the camp has a feeding station there now), and at the tailwaters of the Camp Pool rapids. Almost all are blue-finned khudree mahseer.

Personally, I feel worried for the indigenous mahseer. The blue-fins seem to be dominating the river now. Possibly higher breeding rate, and more predatory. We hardly came across any small musullah mahseer. Looks like the golden mahseer may be "dying out" with the last of the big 'mothers' (giants). But that's only my un-scientific opinion!

What's more worrying: we landed a couple of blue-fin mahseer with orange tint on some fins. Cross-breeding?

We met David and Sven, great guys at post-dinner sessions. We took charge of the gol gar past midnite! They went off to Bhimeshwari to attend a Xmas party, hosted by a certain Mr Joe...

Anyway, Gary, hope you fared much better at Dodda Mulu!

JB

PS: Met, finally, Owen Bosen at Galibore. What a giant: he's almost as tall as his rods! Fished for three days, landed a 35 pounder from Mudheki (where else) at midnight.

PS2: There's some welcome change in Galibore. The gillies are now better equipped, with small rucksack, weighing scale, baiting hooks etc. David says that Sandeep had something to do with it. Kudos, Sandeep! BTW, hoping to chat with you over email, on river cleaning. We're going great guns here, in Malaysia!

Junglebum do you know Donkey from England? He's in Cuba at the moment. Gary are you still at Galibore? How did you get on please? Are the water levels still up and down like a whore's drawers on a Friday night? Hope you got on okay Gary.

Hi Guys,
David has a 60 or so....Joe's info......he is in Bangalore tonight for new year's eve along with Gary.
It seems the fish have moved down to the Galibore beat. It rained this evening in Bangalore.
Owen and I will be at the river Jan.4 to 7.

JB please see my thread on Gillie Training under Conservation and Environment.
