Fishing in Nepal

We organize fishing trips in streams close to Kathmandu or far from Kathmandu. The Himalayan rivers and lakes camps offer good grounds for fishing in Nepal for the fishing adventure lovers. Approximately more than 185 species of exotic fish are dancing around the fresh Himalayan water, ranging from the much sought after Mahseer to the mountain stream trout, catfish, Murrei, rainbow trout, common trout and crap (the crap is the largest fish which can be of several kilos). It is an exciting and wonderful spot to hook out the colorful fish in the clear Himalayan Rivers. The best season is from October to November and February to May. Sport fishing is also gaining popularity in Nepal. There are approximately 118 varieties of fresh – water fish in the Himalayan Rivers ranging from the much sought after Mahseer to the mountain stream trout-like varieties.

Dolalghat, lying east of the valley on the Kodari Highway, is another ‘catchy place’. You can encounter Nepali holidaymakers and the locals on the look out for local variety of Asla and Katla, the former a kind of trout and the latter a carp. You could bring some flies along and try your luck. Some of the Dams across Nepal’s many rivers too have a good stock of fish.

The rivers in the Terai are an angler’s dream. Rivers of Terai are highly recommended if you are looking for an opportunity for fishing in Nepal. Large catfish, murrel and carp are found in abundance here. While trekking along Karnali, Sun Kosi, Bheri and Arun rivers, or rafting, bring along a rod or give the local methods a go- using a bamboo pole or a crude fish trap. The mahseer is a large and much- prized sport fish found in the Geruwa River that skirts the park. However, its numbers are dwindling rapidly, and it is best to let go of it once you land one.
