Hi: I'm considering a trip to the Sangam area of the Kaveri River in later October, but I'm concerned post-monsoon conditions will make for poor fishing. Has anyone out there had successful angling experiences on the Kaveri in October?

Thanks,
Pete

Hi Pete,

Welcome to the forum.

Post monsoon is a good time to fish on the cauvery provided the water level is down to normal. I know that the Sangam part of the cauvery holds a lot of Carp. Mahseer are found upriver and below Sangam.

If you could tell us what species you are targetting we could give you some more tips.

Cheers
Bopanna

Rustam: looking forward to hearing your report. I came across some photos of mahseer catches...not clear which river/s but am guessing at least a few of these are from the Kaveri:

Note photo in upper right corner: 45lb. fish landed early November from river in spate!!

Am I just torturing myself thinking I could have similar success in late October on the Kaveri?

Hi Pete,

The river is still quite high. Needs to go down by another 24" to 30" according to the ghillie. However, it wasn't too muddy but neither was it crystal clear.

Though heavily overcast on Saturday, it did not rain barring a very mild drizzle around sunset. Sunday was quite hot.

My friend Sahadev hooked into a mahseer using light spinning tackle within 30 minutes of the first cast. It must have weighed between 1.5 to 1.75 lbs. Couldn't get a pic as Sahadev released it immediately.

The rest of Saturday was a blank for everyone. On Sunday most of us had a nibble or two in the rapid section but that was about it.

Rustam

Rustam,

The gillies who fish, what do you honestly reckon they do with a Mahseer when none of you guys are not around, do they release them or take them home for a meal?

They could get lynched for doing that Bobby. Moreover the camps are far from their homes, and they all live at the camps, visiting home once a month or once a fortnight.
All gillies are under observation, and i don't think any of them would risk loosing their jobs for a fish or two.
However there are always a couple of bad apples, but by and large the gillies don't do these things, as they know that their livelyhood is assured as long as these fish are around.
This is just my opinion, after many years of interaction with them.
Regards
Owen
