Fishing at Cauvery Fishing Camp can be an offbeat way of spending few days of relaxation from the regular hectic schedule. Apart from visiting sea beaches, mountain ranges and historical places fishing is also a very interesting activity in holidaying that is gaining popularity. The Cauvery Fishing Camp of the Jungle Resort Enterprise provides a special recreation of fish catching and angling on "catch and release" basis.
Located about 100 kilometers from Bangalore, Bheemeshwari is a nature's paradise with the Cauvery River flowing through it. This fishing camp is renowned for nestling the "Mahaseer", which is the largest of all the tropical sporting fish. With nature pouring out its bounties this fishing camp provides the tourists with all sorts of recreation amidst relaxation.
The best time to visit this fishing camp is just after the monsoon when the river water runs in full volume allowing the catchers to get a good catch and the nature appears fresh and well nourished by the monsoon showers. Bird watchers too find extreme delight as flocks of wood peckers, river terns, king fishers and many other colorful birds of unknown species gather in the river banks. Angling and bird watching at the same time can be dual fun.
The Jungle Lodges Resort provides the best accommodations in the ethnically designed luxurious log huts built in coordination with the beautiful natural backdrop. The beautiful riverside cottages enable one to stay very close to the nature.
The fishing season starts from the month of November to February. Local guides or "gullies" help the visitors in trying out this exciting sport but strictly on catch and release basis, in order to preserve this rare species. Silver, black, pink and gold varieties of Mahaseer are found in the Cauvery waters along with the catfish and carp which are very often used as bait. With the help of the experienced gullies one can enjoy the fishing by moving in coracle boats in different parts of the water to get the maximum accessibility of Mahaseer.
Tackles for angling are available for hire but in few numbers. It is advisable to the visitors to carry their own tackles like fishing rods, reels, hooks, line and plugs. One must not forget to carry hats, sunglasses, water boots and sunscreens before moving out for angling.
Besides fishing one can also indulge in long nature walks, bird watching or floating in coracle boats. For adventure lovers, mountain biking and kayaking are also provided in the Cauvery River. Visiting the ruins of an ancient Shiva Temple near Bheemeshwari River or interacting with the Soliga tribal folk can also be interesting features of the vacation.
