Though timing can be critical, thus here are the three best months for Mahseer fly fishing in the Himalayas. 

April

Catch the tail end of the spring and starting of the summer to experience some of the best windows for Golden Mahseer fly fishing, but only in unpressured waters that are becoming increasingly hard to find.

May

You’ll find Golden Mahseer letting their guard down a bit more as temperatures soar and Himalayan snowmelt finds junctions teaming with fish that even migrate short distances around these junctions to hunt for food. While preparing themselves to head upriver to spawn as the monsoons set in. Pretty amazing!

October

Catch the short but productive window of some of the most powerful freshwater fish on the planet, seasoned by the monsoon and pushy highwater. This certainly isn’t a window for the faint-hearted fly rodder. Apart of being unpredictable, this window also requires good, consistent casting using heavy sink tips and heavy flies, for the most part.

"So plan accordingly and remember, be sure to gear up well because these fish don't back off easy when they head downriver. Hooks, lines, connections, knots, and even rods and reels have to all come together and hold up or else all your efforts can the pealed away in a matter of seconds. "
