Tsimane – Agua Negra Lodge
Jungle fishing for golden dorado on freestone rivers in Bolivia
Fishing on the Agua Negra River is an angling experience like no other. You will be fly fishing in the jungle on freestone rivers for golden dorado, pacu, yatorana and more. The rainforest-meets-Andes is a breath-taking environment and will leave you with lifelong memories.
Jungle fly fishing for dorado, pacu and more
Nestled between the Andes and the rainforest these crystal clear streams teem with life, seemingly untouched and unmolested by the hand of man. Within this fish-rich waters lurk marauding dorado, which will test both angler and tackle to their limits.
The Agua Negra River is an important tributary of the Sécure River and is a clear shallow stream that offers easy, accessible wading. The upper sector of the river holds good numbers of dorado, pacú and yatorana. With its clear shallow waters and rocky bottom it is an ideal place for anglers wishing to sight cast. Success on these waters requires a floating line, long leaders and delicate presentation.
Fishing is wet-wading, with a boat and guide on hand to take you to the next likely spot. Beyond the amazing fishing opportunities, the abundant wildlife, flora and fauna with its amazing hues, sounds and smells transform the whole experience into something unforgettable.
