The Mahseer is a fresh water scaly fish, which can attain a huge size, and shows more sport for its size than a Salmon and therefore is considered the best sport fish in the world. The Mahseer quite avidly takes to bait such as spoon, plug, fly or livefish, an erroneous impression has gained ground that they are carnivorous and rapacious. Careful studies have shown that they are omnivorous and take almost any thing available in water ranging from weeds, snails, crabs and live fish.
This historic hamlet of Abbot Mount is situated at an altitude of about 7,000 ft above sea level in the eastern part of the Kumaon Hills near the small town of Lohaghat in Champavat District. Abbott Mount was founded by and named after Mr. John Harold Abbott of Jhansi. An English businessman who wanted to start a hill station for the European community at the turn of the 20th century. Unlike many Indian hill stations Abbott Mount has changed little since its inception. There are only thirteen secluded cottages spread over this private hill. There is a picturesque church set amidst the forest and a ancient cricket pitch with an unsurpassed view of the mountains.
Though Fishermen consider the Golden or Himalayan Mahseer (Tor putitora) as the main species available on the Saryu & Mahakali rivers, besides the Silver and Black Mahseer. Goonch (Bagarus bagarius), a fresh water scavenger is also another species that thrives in these rivers. Though accurate data on the catches of Mahseer for different parts of the country are not available, comparison of figures from isolated surveys and observations of Anglers indicate that in the past Mahseer of 70 - 80 lbs, have been frequently caught in the Indian waters. It has been reported that the Mahseer can grow to weights exceeding 100 lbs.
