Hi Anglers,

Went for my first lure fishing trip to Pancheshwar at the confluence of the beautiful Saryu and the mighty Mahakali.
As luck would have it, it rained badly and the water turned muddy. Caught a few- however. Some pics from the trip


Beautiful Saryu


Mighty Mahakali


My first fish on a lure. Small one but it warmed my heart. Rattling Rapala lure. Silver with blue top.


This was on a Storm swimshad- silver color.


This was on the same lure about 15 mins later.


Pancheshwar temple at the confluence. Saryu in the foreground joining the Kali coming in from the background.


Circle of life. Burning ghat on the bank opposite to the Temple. The hill folk travel miles up and down the hills carrying the departed and the firewood to the ghat for the last rites. We city folks have it real easy!


This one gave a good fight. Same Rapala rattling lure.


This was on a Rapala countdown lure. Gold and silver. Note the thicker lips on the fish.


Talking to the locals. Very good people. Every one greets you as you walk along to your spot.

About the ones that got away- one snapped a 20 lb line and took the Rapala countdown- trout color lure with it. Another broke the rod tip below the second guide from top, snapped the 33 lb line and took the Storm silver swimshad along with it.

October trip beckons.

Tightlines

Keyur, Ravi, Sarvanan, Rajatda and Ashok,

Thanks very much for your messages. If any of the friends in the Indian Angler community are interested in going to this spot following is the info on the route/permits/local arrangements etc.
Moderator- pls note that there is no commerce involved here. Idea is to make the trip at lowest possible costs instead of paying a bomb to the regular operators.

1. Reach Delhi.
2. Delhi to Kathgodam by train. 8 hrs journey. 2nd AC- Rs 500.
3. Kathgodam to Pancheshwar by Taxi. Rate to be negotiated.
4. Alternately one can travel from Delhi to Lohaghat by bus. 12 hr journey.
5. Lohaghat to Pancheshwar by taxi. 35 kms.
6. Permits are available at Champavat. Rs. 750/rod/day.
7. Gudes available locally. Head guide will cost you about Rs. 800/day and otther boys will cost much less.
8. Tents for camping can be arranged.
9. Food - dal/roti/sabji/rice can be arranged locally.

If any one's interested, send PM. Will give the local contact details.

Best season for fishing is March/April and Oct/Nov. This is when the waters are low and clear. You can fish the Mahakali and Saryu. Best fishing is lure fishing. These rivers have the biggest Mahseer in India. Biggest catches have been reported from here.

Go to Pancheshwar. Hook a big one. Fight the fight of your life. If you win, Angling Nirvana!

Tight lines.

Sanju, Ali and Eljefe,

Thanks very much for the messages.

Santosh: The best time for fishing next is about 15th of Oct. The fish retun back after running upsteam for breeding during the months of July/Aug and return in Sept. The fish are hungry as they donot eat when on their breeding run and will be feeding like crazy on return. How ever the river is in spate in Sept and fishing is virtually impossible. Choose the dates a week before full moon near to Oct15th so that you can indulge in night fishing in moonlight! Fishing will be good till Nov 15th though.

Tight lines.

A good camping ground with a perimeter fence supported by a hall having a lounge, toilets and cafe would have helped anglers a lot. Write to the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests on this need.

Bobby & Lionheart- thanks very much for your messages.

Ashok: feasiblity of having facilities would be the question. Some concrete huts have been built along the river. Cannot expect more from our govt.

Hello Sailendra,

Congratulations for Nice catches and thanks for sharing the beautiful snaps.

Way back in 1970 I had gone to Kumaon for Treking to Pindari Glacier and carried with me a small DAM Rod and a small reel with small spoons. We had camped at a small village 'Kapkot' where a tributory of Saryu was just in front of the PWD Dak bunglow. I caught smaller size Mahaseer there. I was a novice that time, but enjoyed the fantastic sport on light tackle. That was in month of May.

Thanks for sharing your trip report and details. waiting for October 2010. I would make a trip certainly Come October!

Best Regards,


Arun
