I returned from fishing [spinning] the Tirthan river valley upstream of Largi upto Nagani near Kullu. Sainj & Thirthan are tributaries of Beas and confluence at Largi and join the Beas thereafter.

The Sainj is finished from an angling view point because of silting and blasting for an hyro project being built upstream.

The Thirthan is recovering from a flood last year and the trout population has to recover, come to a size where anglers will be intrested. About 3-4 years if all goes well and there is no fresh flash flood.

In all fishing = Zero!

Hi Ashok,

Rgards,
Apoo

Dear Owen / Apoo,

First on the tackle - I used a 8' Spinning Rod, golden spinners size 2 and 6 lb co-polymer line from Cabelas. I used the co-polymer for the first time but I observed that it is pretty much affected by line twist. On 7-8 ocassions I saw trout trailing my spinner but turning back at the last moment. There were fly anglers with me but they too did not connect.

I stayed at Largi at the PWD rest house, the bookings for the same can be had from the Devision.1.Office PWD, Kullu, Number 01902-222426. On saturday I checked into The Himalayan Trout House run by Christopher Mitra and really appreciated the place. Christoper gives lessons on Fly Fishing too.
But do check up the fishing season in Kullu as I am not sure about the fishing in Kullu in Nov.

Nov is supposed to be a good place for spinning / trolling in the Pong Dam in HP for Mahseer and Catfish.

I've fished the Tirthan for a couple of years before the flash flood and the idea was to introduce my son to the sport. He caught 8 small ones on his first trip.

Note for prospective anglers - the fish were small before the flood; we even drove around and fished secluded pools but the fish were few and small - but the fishing is great as the place is beautiful, the people are really nice - the problem looming is the hydro projects as they will murder the environment - remember the Tirthan is at 5000 ft msl

Firstly, regrets for the delay in replying. I was shifting and it took BSNL a good 10 days to shift my phone and broadband connection.

Sukhna Lake is open for fishing but i see anglers vastly vastly outnumbered by rickshawpullers, daily wagers coming there for fishing [for food] using a stick, some monofil, a hook and worm/atta.

The fees is pretty nominal, though.

Regards,
