River Angling in Karnataka Bangalore

Rising from the Western Ghats range of Karnataka, Cauvery (also known as the Kaveri) is one of the sacred rivers in India. It is of particular importance to South India, where the river flows before merging into the Bay of Bengal. The river covers a distance of about 765 km and flows through the state of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. On its journey to the Bay of Bengal, the river is joined by its tributaries, which include Harangi, Shimsa, Hemavathi, Honnuhole, Arkavathi, Kapila, Lakshmana Theertha, Kabini, Lokapavani, Bhavani, Noyil and Amaravathy.

Talacauvery (also Talakaveri) located about 5000 ft above sea level is the source of the Cauvery. Talacauvery is considered a famous pilgrimage site in Karnataka.  At the source of the Cauvery there is a temple where every year on Tula sankramana thousands of pilgrims gather to pay their respects to the Cauvery.

The river then flows through Mysore district where two islands Srirangapatnam and Shivanasamudram are formed.  At Sivasamudram the river drops 98 meters forming famous falls known as Gagan Chukki and Bara Chukki. After meandering through Karnataka the river then enters Tamil Nadu and forms the boundary between the Erode and Salem districts. The Cauvery is joined by the Bhavani River at Bhavani. Hogenakkal is a major landmark on the course of the Cauvery in Tamil Nadu. Trichy and Thanjavur are other important towns on the banks of the Cauvery.

The river after covering a distance of 765 km merges into the Bay of Bengal through two principal mouths.

The Cauvery is born as a mountain spring at Talacauvery and grows wider as it travels down the hills. The Mahseer Rapids camp is situated at the point where the river comes down the hills and meets the plains. Opposite the camp is lush green forest which is part of a wildlife sanctuary.

The river in front of the camp is fast flowing with numerous rock formations in the water, behind which, large mahseer lie in wait for smaller baitfish and other food to pass by with the current. The wild mango and flowering trees that line the bank are a good source of both insects, fruit and flowers on which the mahseer feed in the early hours of the morning and late in the evening. Fly patterns which imitate these insects and flowers work well on mahseer.
