Bhutan has beautiful snow fed rivers which have had little or no fishing pressure for countless years. But now it’s allowed in selected areas of Bhutan and at certain designated times of year and only for bona-fide tourist visitors holding the correct permits.

Currently fishing is permitted in these regions:

Bumthang Valleys – Central Bhutan

Thimphu Valley –     Western Bhutan
Lhuentse Region –    North East Bhutan

Paro Valley –            Western Bhutan

Trongsa Region –     Central Bhutan

And on these dates……

  • Fishing is permitted January-February inclusive and June-September inclusive. 
  • Fishing is also not permitted on selected ‘Auspicious Days’ as per the Bhutanese Lunar Calendar.
