The crystal clear waters of the rivers of Bhutan offer exciting fly fishing experiences which are best enjoyed between mid-April to mid-May. Fly fishing is prohibited during October and November as it is the breeding season. During the first and fourth month of Bhutanese religious lunar calendar fishing is strictly prohibited. Fishing is only allowed by special permit along most rivers. However, Punakha and Wangdue districts, Chamkhar Chu in Bumthang and Phobjikha valley are off-limits. For anglers, using any kinds of live bait is strictly prohibited in Bhutan. Trophy fishing is a complete no-no as there is a very strict catch and release policy for fly-fishing in Bhutan. This has been a pivotal feature that is quite in tune with the government’s eco-friendly agenda for protecting the pristine natural environs of the country. The most famous species are the brown trout, snow trout and the iconic golden asher in the southern regions of the country. From large rivers to small streams, there are several fishing spots in Bhutan.
