Thanks Bopanna, Mighty and Owen for the replies. Sounds like Galibore/Sangam area is a questionable proposition for mahseer in October.
How about farther up-river? I'll be in the greater Mysore area in 3rd week of October. Are there known, fishable sections of the Kaveri north/northeast of Mysore, where I can get above the dams and have a better chance of finding larger mahseer (40 lb.s and up)? Best setup for me is to lodge in Mysore, then hook up with a fishing guide for day-trips to the Kaveri. I plan to have car & driver hired, so travel up to 2 hrs to fishable water is not a problem.
Thanks again for your help,
Send Bops a PM, he knows all about the Kaveri in malvalli. I hear that this is about the only place it can be fished as early as October, and some very good catches too.
Rustam will probably have bad news regarding the Bheemeshwari stretch this coming week end. Rains perdicted in the Mysore region for the next 5 days and beyond.
Check out this link it has worked pretty accurately for me in the past.

Moreover the water release from the dam is very high at the moment. Have been in contact with one of the WASI guy's who visited the WASI lakes above the Shivasamundram falls late last week, he says he has never seen so much water in the falls before, and that is saying a lot, because we visited the same spot just a month back together, and i thought the amount of water being released then was phenominal.
