In search of the prized Golden Mahseer, angling became one of the most sought after activity at Nameri. If you ever had doubts about an angling fanatic’s philanthropic love for fish, visit the Jia Bharali, where men are breeding the dwindling Golden Mahseer to, well, have more of them to catch. Today, although the fish is endangered and complete conservation efforts are being taken in the state; many enthusiasts still enjoy leisurely angling in the river for other fish.

The entire area is managed by the Assam Bhorelli Angling and Conservation Association and angling takes place between the months of October to March. Every year in November, hundreds of anglers from across the country and several parts of the world arrive at Jia Bharali River in Assam for the annual competition to net the fierce game fish, Golden Mahseer- Tiger of Indian Rivers.

Though the river is known as Bharali, the angling association was spelt Bhorelli by the Britishers and it has stuck since then.
