Hi Friends,

I will be heading to Kodaikanal for 2 days (May 2nd weeknd):-

I did some internet search about the Kodaikanal lake.I believe it is possible to do fishing .But could not get the complete info.

Can you please share some info on fishing places/licenses required.
Tackle to carry with.

I don't think a license is required to fish the kodaikannal lake, however there is the forest department right next to the bus stand, you can check with them, the highest lake out there is the berijam lake and it should have trout if I'm not mistaken, There is Munnar which is 2 days trek from Kodai and some estates there have trout in the streams of their properties and they can be fished there.

Hope this helps, happy fishing.

check the forest department next to bus stand in main city area about any licenses etc. Also try getting a license for a couple days to berijam lake, its the highest and most beautiful lake in that part of the country and in all probability has been stocked with trout. Best of luck. hope this helps. N fishing in kodai lake is fun, although havent seen or caught any biggies, but the small ones also provide enough entertainment.

Licence to fish at the kodai lake has to be gotten from the fisheries department which is on observatory road. No licences are issued to fish at Berijam lake. This area has been brought under the forest control and even to go there you have to get forest department permission.
Omesh there is no trout at Berijam lake. Only carps.
If you are fishing the Kodai lake then take a light outfit and enjoy fishing.

Ravi.

There are no murrels in Kodai lake.
Spinners and frogs will be extra burden on your weight.
As you said float and bottom fishing would do.

Ravi.

Thank you for the valuable info Ravi. It is nice to know developments have happened and one needs a license to fish the kodai lake. Also it is strange to see no one looked at putting trout in the berijam lake considering its altitude and considering the species can survive. Hopefully someone starts the initiative sooner.

Hi Folks,

Tried my luck at the lake for 2 different sessions. No luck :)
But the weather was too good at Kodaikanal.



Cheers

Cheers! love the place! don't forget to get yourself some nice chocolates that are made there, they also have a whole variety of spices, herbs, essential oils etc. to pick up, did i forget they also have awesome honey and tea. Dont forget to try out the unlimited veggie meals at one of the local joints, the food is heaven. N try using a feeder if u know how.... The lake might just bring you a beauty on the feeder. None the less, hope u have a blast. Enjoy. Plus yes they have avocado's in plenty and real cheap, try having some, they have absolute health benefits.
