Guys,
Anyone have info on this fish? I find the pink carp a very interesting fish, what with its quaint design and colouring. The fight's great too; pound-for-pound it almost matches a mahseer in the rapids, to me anyway!

My group had caught three of them in the Cauvery so far, but the last year or so, they are nowehere to be found.

How big do they grow? Are they widespread, or only endemic to Cauvery?

Rusty,
This is interesting. The fish referred to in Alexis's posting (Korhi Barb, Hypselobarbus micropogon) IS the one we've been catching!

The three specimens we landed were from the Muttati - Dodda Mulu stretch of the Cauvery, and from Moonraker (Mudrekal).

I guess there's more than one "pink carp" in Cauvery. I think the name's a misnomer anyway!

Aznir,

What is most probable is that the anglers got the name wrong.

Hi Guys,

Just adding my 2 cents..... The picture Alexis has posted was what I used to refer to as 'pink carp'. I haven't seen one for the last 3 years and they're becoming harder to find. They put up quite a scrap and are beautiful looking fish. We had a average of 2 pink carp every trip about 5 years ago and earlier. The best spot being crocodile rocks. I was out fishing with Renuka on evening at Croc Rocks when he had a massive strike and line began peeling off his reel. We both thought it was Mahseer and after a small battle he reeld in a mother of a pink carp. It was easily close to 25lbs. I yelled as he reel the fish almost upto the rod tip and in a flash it was gone. We both sat there looking at each other when he looked up at me and said 'bad line'!! Luckily I wasn't carring a knife on that session.

Wonder where the pink carp are.... coming to think of it there was a fish kill on that stretch that was hushed up... 3 to 4 years ago and the majority of the fish that were floating on the surface were kalabanse and pink carp. Guess they're slower breeders than the rest and haven't really bounced back.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

We fished the Cauvery in February 2004 when the river had virtually dried up. There was no water in the rapids above Galibore and the only fishing areas were downstream of Croc Rocks. All the fish for miles were holed up there and thousands of pink carp were shoaled all the way along the stretch. In areas the water was black (or pink) with them. The river erupted as far as the eye could see as cormorants flew upstream spooking the fish. A spectacular sight. Some mornings we witnessed crocodiles feeding on the shoals.

We tried to catch them and failed. The guide finally foul hooked one for lunch.



We weren't bothered by catfish at all and the guides told us that the otters had taken most of them.
