Some of the most significant rivers for fishing and angling are the Karnali, Betrawati, Indrawati, Sunkoshi, Trisuli, and Koshi. While fishing is severely prohibited in some rivers, anglers should remember to protect other aquatic species such as freshwater dolphins, crocodiles, and others in the Koshi, Rapti, and Narayani River systems.
These Himalayan waterways are home to 118 different types of freshwater fish. Apart from mountain stream trout-like variants and lowland water species, the most popular sport fish is the mahaseer.
The greatest time to go fishing on the white waters is before and after the monsoon season, which runs from February to April and October to November.
