Trip Introduction :
Pokhara Lakes Fishing is an opportunity for tolerant and patient fishermen to gain ultimate fishing adventure in the serene and crystal clear lakes of beautiful Pokhara Valley – Phewa Lake and Begnas Lake. Pokhara is a beautiful city and is among one of the popular destinations of Nepal that is quieter and less hectic than Kathmandu.

This fishing trip is a perfect option for those wanting to explore the beautiful Pokhara Valley while gaining a unique fishing experience in the crystal clear lakes of Nepal.
Both lakes offer good fishing grounds for Mahaseer, Common Carp, Grass Carp, Catfish, and several other species of fishes with magnificent views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. All in all, this trip is a combination of leisure day fishing activities, including boating and camping with promising big catches in the lakes of Pokhara. This fishing trip allows us to gain a lifetime experience of memorable fishing adventures.
Pokhara Lakes Fishing with Nepal Guide Treks starts at the capital city of Nepal – Kathmandu. After a short meeting and exchange of fishing plans for the next few days, we will drive over Prithvi Highway from Kathmandu towards Pokhara. Once we reach Pokhara, we will unload our bag packs and get ready with our fishing gears to start our long waited fishing in Phewa Lake.
Around the lakeside, there will be heavy traffic of small wooden boats with people on the Phewa Lake excursion. Thus we will take our boats to some best fishing corners of the lake where we can fish in a peaceful and calm environment away from the crowd. A one-day fishing trip is not enough to experience good fishing.
We will spend three days in Phewa Lake, occupied with fishing activities – making baits and casting our fishing lines from one spot to another. We will be enjoying great views of Annapurna range mountains while reeling some good size fish, truly indulging in a memorable fishing experience. After good fishing at Phewa Lake, we will drive towards Begnas Lake for more fishing. Begnas Lake is less commercial but equally popular for its good fishing grounds.
We will continue our fishing adventure in Begnas Lake for the next couple of days. After the end of our fishing days, we will spend a leisure day at Pokhara to explore Pokhara’s natural wonders and interesting cultures. Our exciting and memorable lakes fishing adventure in Pokhara with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a scenic drive from Pokhara back to Kathmandu.
