Angling in Arunachal Pradesh

Angling & Fishing in Arunachal Pradesh offers numerous possibilities to catch fish, especially trout and Mahseer. The best time is post-monsoon when there is an abundant catch.

Angling and Fishing take you to untraveled territory amid unspoiled wilderness where human presence is rare. It is fun indulging in the adventure sport and taking back memories that last a lifetime. In Arunachal Pradesh, five rivers are famous for a substantial catch. These include areas around the Siang River and Subansiri River. As these rivers are untouched by civilization, there is more oxygen in these waters, and hence the catch is always good.

The Golden Mahseer is rated as a significant accomplishment by anglers. The golden and the rainbow trout are the other popular. The Golden Mahseer is a rare species; therefore, it is mandatory to release them if caught. Permits for angling and Fishing are required to monitor fish stocks. Fisheries departments issue tourists day permits which vary but normally allow the angler to catch a maximum of six fish.
