Water and fish are tastes different other river.
Three fishermen placed small nets in the air for catching fish flying out of the bursting water. They sat and chat leisurely, oblivious to the high-decibel discharge of water. The water was pure white, bubbling with energy. Black-hued water birds took a dip in the water while some were basking in the evening sun on tiny islands. The color birds seemed to be luckier with their catch than the fishermen. A big Fish market is in Rajoli famous for handloom saris and seed cotton growths.
We passed through R.Kontalapadu, Yeduru Singavaram, and Mungalapdu a few small villages and crossed the Kurnool-Cuddapah canal or KC canal, as it is popularly known, near the dam.
