Sport fishing for legendary fish like Golden Mahseer and Goonch (a giant catfish) found in the Himalayan rivers is an experience which has for years drawn enthusiasts from around the world to Vanghat, and our pioneering profit-sharing Mahseer conservation programme has seen the waters by the lodge once again the domain to the numerous and sizeable fish stock that made the area revered in the time of the Raj. With expert and experienced guides, we can cater to seasoned anglers as well as beginners on what is held as one of the finest Mahseer beats anywhere, with numerous runs of promising fishing spots in stunning surroundings.
The Upper Ramganga, i.e. the area above Kalagarh Dam in Corbett Tiger Reserve, and the massive Ramganga reservoir into which it flows in the northeastern corner of Jim Corbett National Park, is a vital fish habitat. From here the Ramganga is a typical Himalayan river with deep pools that allow large fish to stay year-round.
We are also happy to help plan and book multi-day fishing excursions and expeditions farther afield in Uttarakhand and the Himalayas.
