Kashmir has often been referred to as an angler's paradise, with a network of rivers and streams as well as high altitude lakes all abounding in trout - both brown and rainbow. Trout fishing in Kashmir is far, far cheaper than it is in any other part of the world. Criss-crossing the state are the well-known Sind and Lidder rivers, alongwith their tributaries and a silvery network of smaller rivers and streams. The geographical variation along the course of each river is immense, afford-ing endless possibilities for the angler If you are more adventurous, you can fish in one of many high altitude lakes (14,000 ft above sea level) which are reached by a trek and goes on to Vishansar, Kishansar, Satsar, Gadsar and Gangabal, all alpine lakes. When their surface is frozen over during the winter, the fish (mainly brown trout) keep close to the bottom of the lake, rising nearer the surface as the ice melts. In these lakes, the use of spoons and spinners is allowed.
