Even though there are two distinctly different seasons for Golden Mahseer fishing. Picking the right season can be tricky as Golden Mahseer seasons are short.
To clarify, the pre monsoon season (March-May) and a post monsoon season (September-October) are the two times of the year when anglers should look into scheduling a fishing trip, especially for Golden Mahseer.
As the two distinctly different seasons offer opportunities for conventional as well as Mahseer fly fishing.
Fly anglers should certainly go between March and May. Moreover, if you are a lure angler, you are probably better off aiming for the short, but productive season that varies between September and October.
It is important to consider personal fitness, casting abilities, high temperatures, while adapting to a world of the unknown, fishing for the highly resilient, omnivorous and mystical Golden Mahseer.
Travel partners and diversifying your itinerary to fit other priorities such as wildlife, cultural explorations can also play a role in picking a season.
