Trout Fly Fishing in Himalayan India's Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

12 Day Guided Trip

Ever considered fly fishing for trout in the Himalayas? Even though brown and rainbow trout are not native to the Himalayas they have been brought on over from the west and introduced in high elevation rivers and lakes across the Himalayas of India, Nepal, and Bhutan.

As a matter of fact, some valleys are better than the others, while brown and some rainbow trout live alongside the native common snow trout. Also an exciting fish on a fly rod. Though common snow trout are much harder to catch. 

The adventure: Our 12-Day fly fishing trip starts in India’s Uttarakhand region ending in Himachal Pradesh; driving across the scenic and quiet hill passes and hiking/trekking to the headwaters of India’s Yammuna river to access some of India’s best trout fly fishing in the Himalayas.
