Fly fishing India's Ramganga River

India’s fly fishing waters certainly aren’t your average fishing adventure. Nor your average fish, or eco system. In addition to being the world’s largest democracy, India is also an iconic host to rare habitat of bio-indicator species such as the  the Bengal Tiger and the Golden Mahseer

Found among the rivers of India’s oldest, Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve. More specifically, the western  Ramganga river offers Golden Mahseer fishing close to critical tiger habitat. For this reason, Golden Mahseer fishing in India’s western Ramganga river is not for the faint of heart. 

River habitat Golden Mahseer Jim Corbett Park

Jim Corbett Park

4-rivers feed India’s Jim Corbett Park’s critical tiger habitat. Although, all four (4) river, namely, the Sonanadi, Palain, Mandal and western Ramganga are home to good numbers of Golden Mahseer; especially within the tiger reserve. However, catch and release angling is only permitted on the western Ramganga river. That too, on the outskirts of the park. 


Meanwhile, the Jim Corbett Park is also one of the few tiger reserves that still allows overnight stays within this national park. As Corbett Park is host to a series of historic forest bungalows, made during the British era. Boasting access to some truly wild sub-Himalayan habit also known as, the Terai. Characterized by tall Sal forests, grasslands and swamps. This unique habitat has much more to offer than just Golden Mahseer fishing.
