Experiences - Angling/Fishing (Except breeding season)

Angling as a sport has been practiced since times immemorial and was the subject of Ernst Hemingway's famous work The Old Man And The Sea". Himachal Pradesh has been bestowed with abundant rivers and streams which provide the perfect habitat for two divergent species of world renowned sporting capabilities viz Mahaseer and Trout. Jerrys Jungle Huts lie in the heart of kangra valley which is the domain of the Mahaseer (Tor:futi tora generic name) and the brown Trout fishing grounds.

The Mahaseer is considered a better sporting fish than the Salmon and many Royals have fought and lost many battles with this great sporting species of fish. The Mahaseer season is at its peak in the reservoirs, rivers and streams during the months of February till June end, and September and October. Many a great catches have been taken and verified by the Anglers who visit and stay in the valley notably by the frequenting German Angler Christian Eirich and Mr Atul Bimbhat who landed a 32 kg Mahaseer in 2008 besides a five and a half kg brown Trout!

Jerrys Jungle Huts has the privilege of being associated with the Himachal Angling Association and some well known Anglers and Angling guides. We would be looking forward to organize a customized fishing trip for you as per your specific requirements!
