About Fishing in Gulmarg

Many people love fishing and fishing in a hill station is something else. The serenity, view and weather that hill stations have to offer, make the whole fishing activity even more interesting. Fishing is more of a summer activity in Gulmarg.

Since the summer sees extra crowd populating the ski resorts, it is recommended to indulge in fishing for the people who would want to avoid crowd and seek peace. Heading to the Confluence is a good bet for fishing. The confluence is where the streams from Ferozepur Nallah and River Bahan merge.

Another good place to go fishing would be to Ferozepur Nallah (that flows through Chinamarg and Nurpur Pass). Just 5kms away from Gulmarg, you can trout fish out here. Camping is also allowed near the nallah where you can enjoy with your friends and family.

One can also head to Ningle Nallah. This place offers all the privacy a fisher usually needs since it is completely isolated from the crowd of tourists. Trout fishing is famous in ningle nallah. You can also arrange for a camp fire here to party after your catch! This area is also an ideal place for picnics.

Kashmir`s sport trout are not native to Kashmir. This fish was brought-in by the British. The Himalayan water is natural and rich in nutrients. Thus, it supports very many aquatic lives. The fish species od rainbow as well as brown trout flourished since their inception in the water of Gulmar and were completely acclimatized here. Fishing is a permitted activity in streams of Gulmarg. However, glacial lakes remain untouched as usual.

Fly fishing is also an important activity of Gulmarg. Tourists enjoy fly fishing in various water bodies of Gulmarg. Fishing in Gulmarg is common among foreign tourists. Talk to your trip agent or guide and spend a day just relaxing and fishing in Gulmarg. It sure would be a different experience. The beautiful weather and scenery adds more fun to this activity.

The place called fishing pond is yet another place to practice fishing in Gulmarg. The water here is crystal clear water and you can literally see all the fish swimming inside. Fishing gear like rod and reel can be easily hired here. If you have your own fishing rod and reel, then you are all set to catch some big and small games here. The place itself is beautiful and calm, which is what makes it ideal for fishing.

      Kashmir is the must place to visit in a life time, its paradise on earth. Very good place & nice people. My trip got stuck due to picking of wrong travel agent & his driver. They don’t hv iternary/schedule of the trip. Travel agent is just worried about his tour bookings & passed on driver contact number. Driver is pathetic & pain he is very lazy and just flees money . My suggestion to search gud travel agent & enjoy the trip Dal lake / Shankaracharya temple / sonmarg glaciers

      I have to say the decision of going ahead with Classic Holidays Kashmir through Travel Triangle turned out to be really wise & perfect. I and my wife were given proper hospitality, guidance and relaxed experience during the entire package. Pricing was really superb, communications before visits and during the visits by Classic Staff (Ms. Rabya), drive & assistance during visit to understand the locality and local requirements was good by our driver cum tourguide (Mr. Aqib). Mr. Mousim the owner of Classic Holidays took special care to ensure we had the best of services and hospitality. If we or anyone of my relatives/colleagues are going to Kashmir again, I shall surely recommend Classic Holidays Kashmir.

      We booked Young Bombay Tours & Travel for our Amritsar and Jammu-Kashmir trip. The arrangements & hotel booking done were really great. As it was 11 days trip, the iteneary was very well planned & budgeted. Not a single day we felt hectic, it was organised in such a way. Commendable job done by Zaara & her team. All the drivers we met during our trip were wonderful people. They supported us in every way. Must mention Burhan bhai & Zahoor bhai whom we met for Kashmir journey. The places which we visited in Kashmir were so breath taking that it really cannot be mentioned in words. Thank you Young Bombay for such a beautiful & memorable trip. It is really difficult to list the best memories of the trip beacuse the complete trip itself was beautiful. The freezing temperature & the view of snow all over at Gulmarg was completely mesmerizing.

Kashmir holidays planned an excellent trip for my family. We had a memorable trip. Zero point near sonmarg, we experienced snowfall and a very scenic journey atop hill. Gulmarg was also awesome and very chilling The jacuzzi in hotel room @ Pahalgam was an added attraction for my kid who was very happy enjoying the hot water jacuzzi in the chilling weather.
