I'm now nearly 2 months into my 6 month Indian travel adventure. It's been a great experience so far, but I'm really missing my fishing!!

I'm currently in Rishikesh, but can move around at any time, should any fishing opportunities present themselves.

I've already fished the streams of Himachal Pradesh for Trout and the Indus in Ladakh, without joy. I also attempted to get to Dodital Lake, near Uttarkashi, but it was a logistical nightmare.

I believe it's currently close season for Mahseer in this area.

I also realise that the monsoon is very limiting as regards fishing!

Does anyone have any ideas where I might be able to wet a line over the next couple of weeks, with a reasonable chance of success?

Pong Dam and Bhakra open on the 15th of Aug. Scheduled for the 1st of august but the always delay the opening a bit.

Or you can head towards Delhi and the heat. During the monsoon the fishing moves to the plains.

PM me if you head towards Delhi.
