Set in the forests of Karnataka, almost mid-way Bangalore and Mysore, is the Cauvery Fishing and Nature Camp at Bheemeshwari. This is a perfect place for keen fishermen as this is the home of the `Mahseer’, the finest game fish in the tropics, besides different varieties of carp and catfish. There are a number of different pools formed by rocks and you can fish from the river banks or mid-stream from a coracle, a round native boat made out of buffalo hide.
Even if you are not a avid angler, there is plenty of scope for nature walks and bird watching. The best season for visiting Bheemeshwari is November to May.buffalo hide. There is also plenty of scope for nature walks and bird watching. The best season for visiting Bheemeshwari is November to May.
