Trout Fishing in Himachal Pradesh

Streams feeding the Beas River in the Kullu Manali region are well known for Brown Trout. The cold mountain streams are home to some of the biggest varieties of Trout. The best beats are at Larji valley, situated on the confluence of the river Larji and Tirthan. Sainj, which is also a trout stream, flows on the other side.
If you choose to rough it, tented accommodation along the riverbanks is an option to consider. Travelers need to carry all the necessary equipment.
Non-transferable daily licenses are available and cost Rs. 100 per fisherman per rod. License can be obtained from the fisheries office in Patikhul (situated between Kullu and Manali) or, from Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation Marketing Office , Manali.

Fishermen abound with tales of the one that got away...and the odd tale of the one that didn't....and listeners often doubt the veracity of both. Trout fishing is a specialized art but one that any bright child with cunning and skill can perfect. It takes stealth to leap over rocks and approach a pool quietly and cautiously takes dexterity to cast your spinner or fly out near the rocks under which the trout hide, luck not to get it snagged and lost and fate will decide whether your lure is taken or not.
Some resident fishermen claim to know some certain large sized trout 'by name' and will visit the ponds where these fish live every few days to try and hook them again with innovative and creative adjustments to their lures. It's all a part of the trout game and the Tirthan valley is one great place to play the game...the trout are plentiful, the river is beautiful, the valley is peaceful and the weather ... wonderful The buzzword through the valley is 'Mepps'. For the uninitiated 'Mepps' is a spinner brand name that trout fishermen swear by as being the best. The mere mention of the word creates a flutter among the locals, and like magic, they get very friendlier for whoever owns the 'mepps' owns the river. Be careful how you use your spinner...they're expensive and the locals know that and are experts at retrieving spinners snagged in the rocks... after the fisherman has left in frustration
