 When  we  IAHians  met  last  saturday  on  the  LFS  tour/shivas  hatchery  we  talked  about  the  last  collection  trip  and  Arvind  shared  experiences.  Later  when  Arvind,  Raghu  (blackghost)  and  myself  were  having  a  conversation,  Raghu  suggested  that  we  have  another  fishing  trip  around  the  first  week  of  July.  We  all  thought  it  was  a  great  idea,  to  have  a  trip  before  the  monsoons  flood  the  water  bodies  totally.
 
 Please  post  your  suggestions/ideas/probable  dates/availability  on  this  thread.   Lets  make  this  a  rocking  trip!

 Yes  lets  plan  for  this  soemtime  early  July.
 I  think  we  can  start  off  with  deciding  where  to  go.  Someplace  closeby  such  that  we  can  be  back  the  same  day.
 Experienced  campaingers  please  pool  in  your  suggestions!  Smile

PostPosted: Thu Jun 11, 2009 6:34 pm Post subject: Re: Mumbai Collection Trip Reply with quote

 I  just  pulled  out  the  below  from  an  older  thread.  We  can  use  this  as  a  starting  point  for  deciding  the  location:
 
 ------------------
 Panvel  would  be  a  bit  far.  But  by  road  it  should  take  an  hour  from  powai,  and  1.5  hours  from  borivili  (It  is  50  km  from  borivili,  and  55kms  if  via  powai)  in  the  early  hours  of  the  morning,  and  in  the  afternoon  hours  of  a  weekend.  So  we  get  around  3  hours  for  fishing,  if  we  want  to  limit  the  trip  to  6  hours  max.  But  nothing  closer  comes  to  mind.  Most  of  the  water  bodies  in  and  close  around  the  island  city  are  creeks,  or  rivers  that  are  too  polluted  and  fall  out  to  the  sea.  
 
 Another  option  is  circling  around  NP,  around  its  borders  trying  to  locate  water  bodies  from  the  outside.  Maybe  we  can  locate  the  stream  that  clive  had  mentioned.  If  it  was  flowing  in  the  park,  it  must  flow  out  of  the  park,  or  into  the  park.  There  are  no  big  rivers  as  such  that  run  into  the  NP  area.  And  finding  waterbodies  in  this  forest,  in  the  fag  end  of  summer  can  be  challenging.  Also  can  be  a  bit  risky,  considering  there  are  wild  animals  in  the  vicinity.  The  forest  from  NP  stretches  all  the  way  from  borivili  to  Bhandup-mulund.  In  between  lies  the  vihar  &  tulsi  lakes.  But  going  to  the  Tulsi  lake  area  is  prohibhited.  Maybe  there  are  water  bodies  in  this  area,  but  am  not  sure  about  it.  
 
 If  we  go  north  from  borivili  (on  NH8  or  take  a  train  to  Vaitarna  stn),  we  have  another  option  of  the  vaitrana  river.  There  are  a  few  tributaries  like  the  surya,  dahreja  and  tansa  that  should  be  comparatively  narrower  and  shallower.  But  I  havent  seen  these  rivers  and  dont  know  how  good  it  will  be  for  fishing.  This  distance  is  100  Kms  from  powai,  and  around  80  kms  from  borivili.  That  means  2.5  hours  journey  atleast.  So  tough  to  do  this  in  half  a  day.  
 
 Sameer,  
 The  river  that  you  see  from  the  Ghodbunder  road  is  the  Ulhas  river.  But  that  is  when  the  river  has  broadened  considerably,  and  is  polluted  a  bit  too.  IMO  It  is  better  to  go  upriver  (around  Neral/shelu)  to  fish  in  the  Ulhas  river.  But  I  guess,  there  was  a  trip  to  ulhas  river  @  badlapur  just  last  month.  
 
 There  are  other  rivers,  as  we  go  south  of  panvel,  as  avdhoot  mentioned.  But  then  would  we  have  enough  time  to  go  further  off  from  panvel  is  the  question.  
 
 Are  there  any  other  places  that  we  can  think  off?  
 
 I  also  have  pulled  out  the  word-atlas  by  shankar,  from  the  previous  trip  thread.  It  should  help  in  deciding  a  spot:  
 -------------  
 
 Hmmm,  beginning  with  Powai.   Smile  
 
 Enter  the  garden  adjacent  to  the  lake.  The  lake  water  is  made  to  flow  through  the  garden.  Not  sure,  if  this  still  exists.  as  a  major  road  widening  was  supposed  to  take  place  parallel  to  L&T.  The  lake  itself  has  quite  a  few  fish,  but  the  access  is  very  difficult  and  crocs  do  pop  out  once  in  a  while.  
 
 Upvan,  Thane.  Again  the  Upvan  lake  is  not  the  easiest  of  places.  Rather  climb  the  diversion  to  the  left,  towards  the  Air  Force  Station.  There  is  a  decent  fishing  spot  right  next  to  the  AFS.  Good  place  to  collect  driftwood.  
 
 Shilphata  -  Dombivli  Road.  
 a.  Khidkali  should  be  a  wasted  trip.  Tilapia  and  largish  Catfish  mainly.  
 b.  River  near  Lodha  Heaven  Complex.  Plenty  of  shallows  all  along  the  huge  water  pipeline.  You  would  mostly  find  A.  lineatus.  Need  to  explore  more.  
 c.  Take  the  diversion  towards  Ambarnath  MIDC  road.  There  is  possibly  an  interesting  lake  (unexplored  by  me)  at  the  foot  hills  of  Haji  Malang.  
 d.  Keep  driving  straight  until  Badlapur.  
 d1.  River  at  Badlapur  West.  Lots  of  nice  wood  shrimps  and  driftwood  to  collect.  
 d2.  Proceed  to  Kondeshwar,  without  entering  into  Badlapur.  Couple  of  nice  places.  A  reservoir  and  a  seasonal?  water  falls  right  at  the  end  of  drive  way.  
 e.  Lots  of  ponds  at  Manpada  (  'Agri'  locality  )  near  Dombivli  MIDC.  I  didn't  mean  Agriculture.  Dare  to  enter  if  you  have  heard  of  Agri  homes.  Wink  
 f.  Dombivli  West  creek.  You'll  find  brackish  fish  including  S.  sadanundio.  
 
 Titwala  /  Khadavli  
 
 Wont  mention  more  about  the  above  places.  Worth  going  and  exploring.  The  connecting  bridge  to  Khadavli  was  the  place  where  i  had  found  FW  Jellyfish  sp.  
 
 There  is  a  dam  /  reservoir  at  Palasdari.  It  falls  on  the  Karjat  to  Khopoli  route  and  is  the  first  station  after  Karjat.  I  could  not  find  easier  places  to  catch  fish  here.  
 
 Zenith  falls  at  Khopoli  is  a  good  enough  place  too.  Often  found  drunk  men  all  along  the  falls.  Avoid  weekends  to  avoid  them.

 Nothing  like  eating  sandwiches.  easy  to  make,  easy  to  pack  and  easy  to  eat.  No  need  to  wash  hands  either.  minimum  amount  of  waste  to  bring  back.   This  is  actually  arnab's  idea...  Drool   and  i  still  lick  my  lips  when  i  think  of  them.
 
 The  large  shallow  hand  nets  are  really  useful.  We  caught  most  of  our  fish  with  them.  Get  it  DIY'd,  its  pretty  cheap.
 
 My  inference  from  the  bangalore  collection  trips.  enjoy  Thumb Up

PostPosted: Wed Jun 17, 2009 3:39 pm Post subject: Re: Mumbai Collection Trip Reply with quote

 Thanks  for  the  info  Preetam.
 
 Btw  I  had  a  discussion  with  Suneal  regarding  the  trip.  We  thought  that  July  may  be  too  late  to  go,  as  the  monsoons  would  have  come  by  then  (God  knows  in  what  magnitudes,  considering  the  current  delays),  bringing  in  the  muddy  waters  and  higher  water  levels.  So  we  thought  of  preponing  the  trip  to  maybe  the  27th-28th  of  June  latest  (earlier  than  this  might  be  too  short  notice).  
 
 So  we  need  to  get  this  thread  going  and  finalise  the  following:
 
 (a)  the  Date  (Current  proposal:  27th-28th  of  June)  
 (b)  The  Location  (Nothing  decided  yet)
 (c)  The  list  of  people  coming  (Yet  to  finalise).  
 
 Please  post  ASAP  to  indicate  if  you  are  OK  with  the  date,  a  possible  location  and  whether  you  can  make  it  for  the  trip.
 
 Also,  should  we  plan  for  a  one  day  trip  somewhere  near,  or  a  2  day  trip  further  away.
 
 Mumbaiites/interested  puneites,  please  respond.

 Alistair
 If  you  guys  are  gonna  plan  fishing  in  a  small  river  or  stream,i  think  a  recce  will  be  needed,just  to  check  out  the  scene  at  the  waterbody.  We  found  several  dry  streams  on  a  recent  trip  near  Pune...  Smile  
 Wont  be  able  to  make  it  for  the  trip  if  its  not  going  to  be  within  biking  distance  of  Pune...

 Shubhankar,  I  guess  we  mostly  will  try  and  go  to  some  bigger  water  bodies.  I  too  noticed  that  most  of  the  smaller  streams  etc.  are  totally  dried  up.  And  I  guess  there  isnt  enough  time  for  a  recce.
 
 Garothmaan,  looks  like  not  many  interested  in  the  trip  this  time...
 Anyways,  I  am  ok  with  either  a  saturday  or  a  sunday.

 Guys,
 
 Had  a  talk  with  suneal  regarding  this.  Since  the  rains  have  come  down  hard  and  there  wasnt  too  good  a  response,  this  trip  stands  postponed  as  of  now.  We  can  plan  something  like  a  meet  after  aquatika  or  maybe  a  trip  after  the  monsoons.  I  am  ok  for  one  in  the  monsoons  too,  if  there  are  any  takers.
