Golden Mahseer Fishing in India's Western Ramganga River, Kumaon

Fishing in the Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve area! Evolved with the youngest mountain ranges of the world, Golden Mahseer isn’t your average fish, rather a carp armored to take on the monsoons as this bioindicator species, batch deposits its spawn to ensure the survival of their next generations. 

Experience the thrill of a lifetime in India’s most prolific Terai habitat. Enjoy a private forest tour and capture the rugged beauty of India’s Himalayan foothills.

Jim Corbett National Park is the most prolific of all national parks in terms of other bioindicator species. It’s named after the author of Man-Eaters of Kumaon, a classic epic that describes the habitat and man-eaters that dominated this landscape in the early 1900s.

Jim Corbett Park

The Sonanadi, Palain, Mandal and western Ramganga are home to very good numbers of Golden Mahseer; especially within the tiger reserve. However, the number of Golden Mahseer drastically decrease in the stretches that are located outside the tiger reserve.

Habitat & Fishing Regulations

The Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve is one of the largest protected areas in India, spanning the states of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. The reserve has both open grassland and dense forests, making it an ideal spot for bird watching and wildlife viewing.

A pair of high powered binoculars is one of the most useful and versatile tools you can pack in your hunting bag. It’s a great way to spot animals on long hikes, or when camping in the wild.
