Fishing and diving in rivers of Nepal is another most popular things not to miss in Nepal as a tourist. Many fishes live in the steep gradients of mountain streams which are characterised by white water rapids, pools and waterfalls. The river bottom consists of boulder, cobbles and gravel. This type of habitat is well represented in highland Nepal and often forms an impenetrable barrier to heavy bodied clumsy fishes of the lowlands. Only slim bodied cold water forms that resist strong current can thrive well in such environment. Fishes from this inspiring underwater world can be studied by diving and snorkeling.
Water clarity of creeks and medium sized stream is high soon after rainy season and form spawning areas of snow trout and mahseers. Migratory fishes arriving from turbid water of lowland river broadcast their spawn and raise their egg and fry in nursery bed sunlight waters of shallow creeks and streams. Fishing in clear water is a seasonal affair in Nepal, cherished by young and adult. Diving and snorkeling in placid pools provide a zest to fisher life.
Fish fill us wonder in fast turbulent waters of Himalaya. There are all kinds of smell, sound, sights for learning real language of living stream one of the deepest motivation may be observing and understanding. The chain of life is fitted in a nice ribbon of a mountain stream, a naturally well balanced stream like Arun support is a delicate balance of four indicator insect mayflies, stoneflies, caddis flies in the upper reaches and midges, crane flies and black flies in lower reaches.
The rugged mountain topography coupled with high annual snow melt, rainfall from an impressive catchment of numerous Himalayan drainage system makes these fishing waters unique in the whole world.

Although they are not extensive on either number and size, they support an ancient gene pool of endemic snow trout and catfishes and loaches.
In most mountain streams the water level subsides just as rapidly when the rains cease. Typically such habitats support migratory fishes or temporary attendants in fast flowing stream of the upper reaches. Many fishes living in steep gradient of mountain stream are characterized by many adaptive devices which keep themselves in position and protect themselves being swept away by fast current. By diving and snorkeling in crystal clear water shallows and pools of mountain stream one can observe the mode of life based on natural principles.
