Altitudes range from a low of 1,200 meters to 3,000 meters. Common species are snow trout and the brown trout. Fishing in Bhutan is permitted only in the months of January – February and to July and September. While fishing in Bhutan is an awesome experience, it is also important to note that fishing is not a cultural phenomenon in Bhutan, despite having huge resource of fresh water rivers and more than 40 species of fresh water fish, most importantly the fresh water tour. In fact, Bhutanese buy fish and release it in the river during the festival of blessed rainy day. Killing of fish is regarded inauspicious and against Buddhism. Therefore only catch and release or fly fishing is allowed by the government.
