For generations anglers have been fishing this prolific habitat that feeds India’s equivalent of the Yellowstone National Park – the Jim Corbett park. India’s first national park and also the home of India’s most significant contribution to conservation, Project Tiger.

But that’s not all. Due to the conservation efforts, northern India has been able to retain one of it’s best Golden Mahseer, sight-fisheries. The Ramganag River is sure to offer you a good number of sight-fishing opportunities especially  from March to early June. In addition, this is also a good time of the year to see wildlife in the Jim Corbett Park.

Though be warned; forest officials of Jim Corbett Park have been hesitant to allow angling even on the outskirts of the Jim Corbett park. Recently catch and release angling has been re-opened close the park and we hope it stays that way.
