Golden Mahseer in an Ancient and Exotic Land
A trip to India is not your average fishing trip, just as the Golden Mahseer is not your everyday fish. To pursue this selective, heavily-armored freshwater fish means a journey to the Himalayan frontier region of northern India, where the experienced local guides that Yellow Dog works with have established a totally unique, nomadic fishing program. This is an offering that utilizes a number of different tent camps and multi-day floats, focusing on productive stretches of the Saryu and Mahakali Rivers located on the Indian and Nepalese border. Golden Mahseer fishing in India usually involves wade fishing from the bank, although on some larger stretches fishing from a raft while covering long sections of water can be productive. Fishing for Mahseer is in many ways similar to fishing for steelhead or Atlantic salmon.
