Dear All,




Had an opportunity to visit Bhakra a couple of days back. Started @ 9 am, did some spinning close to where the boats are tied and got a hit on a jointed minnow. My interest was in trolling, so haggled with a couple of boat guys and got on to the boat. Within 1/2 hour got a bite and a 1.5 kg mahseer came up. In the next 10 minutes two of my trolling rods clickers started singing, trying to grab one from my driver/man friday and working with the other, lost one and got another.

A tricky diving planer I was using on a 3rd rod got stuck in the rocks, moving the boat around, to get it out, I was surprised to find a smart mahseer on business end. Apparently he would lift the planer in his quest to escape and get it stuck in another rock.

For the next 3 hours it was quiet. Called Indian Gypsy who gave some very valuable tips and got 5 more by the end of it. None too big, but the biggest (as always) got away, 3 feet from my boat.

All in all a gratifying experience!!


Cheers!!

Dear All,

Another trip to Bhakra yielded 5 Mahseer, 3 on spinning and two on trolling. Interestingly on low light, got a decent Mahseer on a luminescent plug.





Cheers!

Guys, thanks again, though I am doubtful if May will be as productive as March.

Cheers!!

Hello Sam,

Some quick questions on Bhakra fishing:

1. Is there much hassling at the security checkpoints for anglers? what is the procedure now (understand this was intensified after anti-social elements threats to
the dam)?

2. What is the going rate for hiring boats (large size) - it would be nice if we
anglers could all agree to a uniform rate to avoid getting taken for a ride(pun
intended)?

3. I used some 30ft. depth Rapala Deep Divers and Scorpion +8m to good
effect while trolling. What lures/line did you use?

4. What lures did you use for spinning/rod size/line?I found that shallow plugs near the boats yielded only the smaller sized mahseer.

Regards,
Kingfish

Sam,

Thank you for the information.

Will be in Chandigarh this winter and may call you to join me for another trip to Bhakra.

Tell me if you need anything fishingwise from Australia?

Regards,
Kingfish

Kingfish,

Manali in June is unpredictable. We had rain for 3 days before I reached Manali so the water was in spate/muddy, and so in turn were the streams/canals. If its not raining, most productive areas are below/around Kullu and lower as well as Aut. I skipped Aut for the same reason, as the water would have been the same. In other words, this trip was non productive, though had good fun around streams in Manali where the water is cleaner, but not possible to do flyfishing/spinning here. Got to toss a worm in little pools of rapids and pull the line with your hands to get a feel of a bite.

There are some good guides around Kullu, essentially with the rafting setups (hotel ones are generally not good), though if they have their way, would try and convince you to fish at the Beas. Push them to take you to proper places, i.e. streams/canals.


Cheers.
