The Fishing

Orinoco Riches: A Paradise for Anglers

The mighty Orinoco River and its tributaries offer an unparalleled fishing paradise for all skill levels. Get ready to battle a diversity of monstrous fish, each offering a unique challenge:

Monster Payara & Agile Sardinata:

  • Deep Dives & Razor Teeth: Target legendary Payara (“Vampire Fish”) in the main Rio Orinoco’s depths with deep divers and other lures.
  • Surface Skirmish: Cast small poppers and jigs/flies for the lively Sardinata in the rapids, adding another dimension of excitement to your Orinoco adventure.

Peacock Bass Extravaganza:

  • Topwater Frenzy: Venture into the lagoons of the Orinoco’s tributaries, where massive Three Barred Peacock Bass await. These aerial attackers readily succumb to topwater lures like propbaits, walking baits, poppers. Jigs, minnowbaits, spinnerbaits and popping and streamer flies can tempt these fierce fighters.

Important Note: To protect the Peacock Bass population, please replace all treble hooks with inline single hooks on all lures.

Giants of the Deep: Bait Fishing Bounty: For anglers seeking a true test of strength, try your hand at bait fishing in the Rio Orinoco. Target big catfish species like Surubim, Piraiba, Jau and Redtails, and prepare for an epic battle that will leave you breathless.

A Fisherman’s Paradise Awaits: Finding such a vast array of trophy fish in one location is a dream come true. The sheer size and abundance of these species in the Orinoco ecosystem make it a true fisherman’s paradise.
