Hello everyone,

I am preparing to go up to the Nakuchiatal lake near Nainital for a couple of days. Hence i was wondering if anyone on the forum has previously angled there. Also what species of fish can i expect and any suggestions on bait, tackle etc, would be very welcome.

I had posted this in the bait and tackle section with mo replies... so i thought maybe this is the more appropriate section for the query. Hope someone can help.

Thanks a ton and and cheers,

Vikram

Here's a quick reply. i used to fish these lakes (Bhimtal, Saattal and Naukuchiatal) in the late nineties. There were mahseer then that refused to take any kind of lure. But if you grounded baited with fermented corn and used the same on your hook then you could catch some fish. The only problem was that it was more a cast out your bait, leave your airtight can with line on the bank. And come back tom morning. If your tackle had gone then you got a boat and rowed around till you found the can being towed around the lake.

The latest I have heard about these lakes is that there are still a few Mahseer in Saattal bit both the other lakes have been stocked with carp.

At Saattal there is a bloke called Pawan who runs the chai stall right near the boat docks. He might be able to help you if he is still alive. At bhimtal there is some bloke called Gupta from Delhi who is into fishing the lake. Ask around as he has some sort of guest house.

As for tackle, just remember you are going carp fishing so get out the floats and the small hooks.

so i did end up going there and fishing in two locations.
1. Naukuchiatal - didn't catch anything, but some local kids got a 3 pound carp on a hand line. Got a few bites though and one got away.But the water is completely brown and dirty. I was told that last year for some reason (maybe the weeds perrazi is talking about), huge numbers of fish, which included mahaseer, were congregating on the surface to take in oxygen. The local boatmen apparently took home loads of the fish by just killing them by whacking them dead with oars !!! The waters at Bheemtal looked a lot clearer and would be ok for fishing i would think.

2. Saattaal - This place is absolutely gorgeous. I was told Mahaseer are to be had early morning and late evening on live bait which is a small fish found in the lake. I tried to spin a small lure from a boat in the afternoon as i had to drive back to delhi... didn't catch anything again, but saw some monster mahaseer soaking in the sun on the surface. Would definitely be in the 15 - 20 kg range !! I repeatedly cast past the shoal and tried to reel it in across them so that it the lure would be clearly visible to them, but no such luck !!
