Mahseer fly fishing in the Himalayas especially for Golden Mahseer became a thing only recently. Reason? Recent tackle innovations. Better flies. More access to the good waters, skilled anglers, and evolving techniques for fishing good water well. Though timing can be critical, thus here are the three best months for Mahseer fly fishing in the Himalayas. These are as follows.
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.
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!
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.
