Some of the pics from the trip to Umiam lake in Shillong on 28th of Oct.

The catch was nil. Lines got tangled in a bad way. I had to discard a lot of line.


The trip to Nameri on 31st of Oct.

The guy with the black cap is Dinesh Kalita, and the other guy is Shankar Hazarika, the boatmans Paglam and Kaliram.

The catch was 16 in total. All were in the range of 800gms to 1.5kg.

The fishes caught were Golden Mahseer, Boka, Sal, Trout. The trouts are the warm water trout.

It was an excellent trip as for the last few years there was a few catches and this was a good season.

Met about 20 anglers and it was great. Some of the anglers came from Dibrugarh and imphal.

The fishes shown with the stringer was for the pot.

The turtle was released too. it was not caught on rods. The boatmen brought it from the bank of the river.

All the 16 fishes were not my catch. I caught only 5 and my Boka was the 1.5 kg and was the biggest. Couldnt click a snap as the camera was not with me.

Hi Shaplan,
Shillong and Nameri is around 250kms apart. Nameri is in the northern bank of the brahmaputra river. Shillong is on the southern bank. Nameri is 200kms from Guwahati where I stay and Shillong is 100km from Guwahati. The routes are different.

Cheers,
Apoo

Hi Bobby / Mken,

All the mahseers were released. Only the sal, boka and the trout were kept for the pot. The mahseers were put on the stringers for 5 to 10 seconds only. They were kept on a keep net big enough to accomodate around 10 to 15 of them. Though they were put on the stringers by my friends, I released the ones caught by me without taking a snap.

Nice pix as usual Apoo.
I can see 2 types of Mahseer on the stringer. The orange tails and fins i assume are tor putitora, but the one on the left is interesting as it looks like a deccan mahseer (tor kudhree). How the hell did it get into the rivers over there ?
Any closer pictures of those 3 fish ?
Regards
Owen

Great fishing apoo. The water looks great. Cool surroundings. Must have been a great fun.

Never seen these fish. How did you catch them? Can you provide some information about the warm water trout. They probably belong to family cyprinidaei, am i right. Could not find anything on Barilus Bola.

Secondly, which is the rod and reel in pic 2.
Regards
Sualeh

Great trip Apoo, My Bangladeshi friends tell me that Shillong is where they go to have a trip to escape the heat, by the looks of it the fishing isnt half bad either!

Sualeh, In the trout thread you aksed me about the Bola and thanks to Apoo we have a picture of it. Its also refered to as the Indian Trout. It is not found in Pakistan and yes it is a cyprinid.

Apoo, did you catch the Trout on lures or bait?
