Frequently Asked Questions

The window for Golden Mahseer fishing can be quite narrow and two times of the year dominate some of the best fishing for Mahseer which are the pre-and post-monsoon period. In addition, the pre-monsoon usually is referred to as April May and early June and the post monsoon is referred to as October and in some places even November. 
Generally speaking, we prefer the pre-monsoon time of the year for fly fishing as it offers clear conditions more suitable for fly fishing. It is also drier weather which allows for better sightings of wildlife, less rain and chances of the river blowing out. 

2-4 Golden Mahseer a day is considered a great day and good conditions.
