High low, high low, its off to galli I go, with a plug and a blade.high low ...high low ..high low .high looww...
To be frank the levels at Galliborai are dependant on the man with the button at KRS dam, amongst others, and he's told by the politicians of Karnataka and hq in Delhi how much water (life blood) Tamil Nadu is to get, so you are never going to know in advance what the situation is going to be till you get there ... and that can change in hours as I'm sure you know, but if you're booked to go then have a genuinely smashing trip whatever the levels may be, its not all about the catching ...

Water level is still quite high though not muddy anymore. Lots of fish in the 5-10 lb range.

Have seen a recent report of plenty of fish in the 20-25lb range and one fish of 40 but not aware of number of anglers there at present. I'll be there 26 Dec for 8 days but unless wifi has amazing appeared won't be able to file a report until after you travel.

Best of luck

Just back from trip to Galibore, which was as stunning and welcoming as ever.

The river was lower than during my trip last year, although it did go up a few inches overnight on the 5th day which I presume was a release from the dam.

The guides said they had experienced a very cold winter and we had a couple of cloudy days as well.

Overall amongst our group of 8 a lot of fish were caught up to 40 lbs, with what seemed like a greater than previous number in the 30 plus size. The real big ones seemed a bit elusive though, Croc Rock area particularly, probably due colder water or to limitations on night fishing.

Biggest of the week was 57 backed up by several 40's. As always there was an unlimted number of hard fighting smaller fish to be caught if you want to by fishing the soft baits.

We did some experimenting with float fishing and it definitely showed some promise. Certainly think fish in the 20/30's can be caught that way as there is much less resistance to the initial pick up.

Fishing at night is now restricted to the camp beaches only after 7.45pm, but they actually fished very well, particularly from 10pm to 1am.

Hopefully will be back next year if the fishing continues.

The rapids are too low to fish other than from the bank, the pools above are just about fishable I believe, although I didn't go up there myself.

I do know some people came down the rapids, but they were shallow and I dont think they really fished them, just came through. One guide declined to take his, admitedly larger, guest down the rapids due to the low levels. I must stress I didn't personally go up there myself at all so you must seek advice further if it is critical to you. Some did go spinning in the pools above the rapids.

The section at the bottom of the stretch, where the road crossing is, was fished and reaped a couple of decent catches.

Most people ended up spread out evenly between the camp beaches and croc rock

Went to Galibore during Nov, 2011. Water level was high and the currents were too strong. Could not make the bait stay in the channels.

But got plenty of 1 - 3 Kg Masheers, one carnatic carp. It was almost as much you want to catch. One wife of an angler caught a 10 kg from the banks.

We caught about 20 - 25 fishes. And at one point I stopped fishing since it was all the same.

Anyone going to Galibore in March/April ? PM me. Would like to join some one going there.
