The Ganges RiverThe Upper Ganges

You will be guided on some of our favorite waters on this river where there is a good chance that you will not see any other angler. In order to fish this river efficiently one needs to be on the river and have the flexibility of being able to set up camp wherever the condition are conducive. The Ganges is primarily fished using sinking lines and streamers. You can plan on outfitting your fly-box with some heavy flies with dumbbell eyes that we can help you tie or provide you with. The Ganges is a double-handed fly rod friendly river and our guests mostly use short-belly Spey lines like the RIO Skaget which can be matched with an assortment of sinking tips and can carry heavy flies. Spinning is also a productive and an efficient way to fish the Ganges.
