Few anglers in the West realise that India, with its dozens of rivers and thousands of streams, offers vast opportunities for sport fishing and angling. Whether you’re the type who likes to string a worm onto a makeshift line and catch your own dinner- or a thoroughbred professional angler with the latest in fishing tackle- India’s waters, both fresh and salt, can be a pleasant surprise. The country has an estimated 50,000 km of waters- rivers, streams, and lakes included- and an additional 3,000 km of coastline, and although sportfishing is still the preserve of a very select elite, there’s definitely a lot of scope for some satisfying angling.

Kashmir is called the Anglers Paradise because the valley of Kashmir contains crystal-clear cold water turbulent streams, mighty springs, Sars and many high altitude lakes, lofty snow-clad mountains, thick forests of pine trees, lush green meadows, beautiful valleys and a beautiful fish fauna with a very pleasant and healthy climate. Kashmir offers great scope for sport fisheries. That is why Anglers from all over the world come over here every year to enjoy the thrill of angling in the snow fed streams and lakes of this valley.

Angling is open from month of April to September every year. However the duration of angling can be extended or shortened by the Directorate of Fisheries, J & K Government on the basis of suitable conditions prevailing from time to time.
