Jaguar Explorer Camp Trips - Guyana

With Amazon-Angler.com’s unbridled knowledge gained from 20 years of fishing and working in the Amazon, and with the best recourses from Guyana behind us, we’ll be undertaking some of our toughest challenges yet, hosting small groups of anglers deeper into untouched jungle than we’ve ever been before, exploring even more virgin Amazonian waters in beautiful Guyana.


These are wild river systems that have never or rarely seen a rod or line before. These beautiful rivers run through virgin rainforest, cascading over huge rocks and boulders, creating deep pools and runs for Giant Cats and many other predatory species of fish, to be caught on lures, flies and baits.

‘Jaguar Explorer Camp’ Trip

Jaguar Explorer - Guyana Fishing Trip

Our mobile ‘Jaguar Explorer’ camp will be set up on a sandy beach and under tree canopy to keep cool with a view over the spectacular surrounding scenery. The camps will be totally self-sufficient in every way. We will move every few days to fresh, unfished waters.


We have individual tents with cots, handling a maximum of 8 anglers at any one time.  A separate area will be screened off for bathroom facilities and our anglers can either bathe in the river or in our propane heated jungle shower.


With a generator and big freezers, our ‘safari’ kitchen will supply the most delicious breakfasts, with cereal, eggs, bacon, sausages, fruits and homemade breads, and dinners with South African -style ‘Braais’ with meats and veg served with ice cold beer and beverages all day long. Laundry will be done daily.

The Camp

We fish from September to April inclusive. Days are typically warm with temperature over 70º F at night and 80-90º F during the day, but it feels cooler most of the time due to plenty of breeze during the day.


Please remember, this is fishing in the Tropics and we advise clients to bring a lightweight rain jacket/suit as it can get chilly when temperatures drop during a storm.


As we are fishing in clean, low pH water, there are generally few or no mosquitos or biting insects, although no-see-ums can be a nuisance on overcast days. A high DEET-content insect repellent is advisable.

There is such a diversity of predatory species to be caught in these rivers. With lures, flies, jigs, spoons, cut baits and other baits, dozens of different fish will keep the avid angler busy the whole trip. Our top species count to date is 26!!


There are hard-fighting ‘Yellow’ Peacock Bass, tough prehistoric-looking Hymara or Wolf Fish, slash-and-grab Payara/Vampire Fish and the Pike-like Bicuda, Monkey Fish/Arowana, Giant Black Piranhas and Coby/Pescada.


MONSTER Cats dwell here in the depths and all can be caught on cutbait, livebait or whole dead fish.  Surubim or Shovel-nosed Tiger Cats, Leopard or Jundia Cats, Redtails, Jau and the King of all our Cats, the Giant Freshwater Shark/Lau-lau /Piraiba.


And we have the Holy Grail of all Amazonian fish, the Giant Arapaima that can be caught on big flies, lures, live and dead bait.


There are so many other species for the avid angler to catch who is willing to go that extra mile. Anglers can catch nut, fruit and berry-eating fish like big Red and Silver Pacu, Couti, Aracu and many more scaled species all day long. All these smaller scaled species make for great fresh Catfish bait too!


The weird and wonderful are also still to be discovered by many foreign fishermen and we have them all. Plenty of European anglers enjoy what is classified as ‘coarse fishing’, and an angler could easily ‘bag-up’ with sweetcorn, nuts, fruits, potato, fish strips or freshwater snails.
