FISHING AND ANGLING IN JIM CORBETT PARK
The Ramganga River is the main lifeline of the
Corbett Tiger Reserve and supports a wide array of
aquatic life forms within. Common Otters (Lutralutra
monticola), Mugger (crocodylus palustris), the fish
eating Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) and fishing
Eagles are just a few, who benefit from this
perennial source. Famed for the 'Mighty Mahseer' the
fighting fish, it is one of the finest rivers of
north India for Anglers. The largest Mahseer (Barbustor)
catch in the last few years weighed 65lbs. Other
species on this river include the Goonch, Malee (Wallago
attu), Rohu and Trout in certain sections. Using
Wild Jungle Lodge as a base one can opt for multi
day fishing trips on various stretches of the
Ramganga River in india. These trips are escorted
by our Camp fishing guides - some of the finest in
the area, and involve overnight camping by the River
on it upper stretch.
