I have been doing some research on fishing locations in and around Bangalore and have been to a couple, but on the whole I have not got any till now.
I fished at Begur Lake sometime back with my bro in lawnand did manage to catch 2 good sized catfish. But Just as we reeled in the second, a person came near us and told us that the lake was under contract and the contractor creates problems. I was not able to get any contact info of this person. The lake is pretty decent but not safe to fish around, so have not gone there the second time.
Went to Manchinbele next. 50Kms good drive from Bangalore, but BIIIG Dissapointment. The Dam is closed. There were policemen who were not allowing anyone to go near the water.. They said that there were robberies and murders in that place because of which they were not allowing anyone to go near the water. in fact while going to that place you will find groups of young guys asking for money, they will stop u on the road and ask for money, even stand in the middle of the road to make u stop and then won't let u go till u pay up. I just drove straight without stopping, the guy standing in the middle of the road just moved out of the way as he saw that i am not stopping.
Went to the next one called Magadi Dam about 12Km from Manchinbele, again dissapointed. there is not way to get near the water as every road is closed.
Can anyone please suggest me some really good and clean places where one can go, relax and fish?? i am looking for some good river points also, where one can go and fish safely in and around Bangalore.
