As I am new to the region, I am trying to get a feel for the fishing opportunities here.
I have read elsewhere online that there are good opportunities for trout in the Nilgiris and elsewhere, but I also understand that some waters are closed to fishing.
When did this closing occur? Why did it occur? When will it end? How extensive is it? Any way to get around it? Are there any streams or lakes that are still open?
For my part, I plan to practice strict catch-and-release fly fishing. Would this enable me to fish any waters that might be closed to others? I only ask because there are zero-limit artificial-only and fly-only waters in the US, where I am from.
