Tsimane – Agua Negra – exciting jungle fishing

This breath taking location, where rainforest meets the Andes, offers a fishing experience like no other. The untouched crystal clear streams running through the rainforest are home to rich populations of golden dorado which will test both angler and tackle to their limits. The water clarity means sight fishing is often possible and floating lines are the order of the day to temp these fierce fighting fish. You will wet-wade with a boat and guide on hand to take you to the next spot.

Why Charlotte wants to fish the Agua Negra

Charlotte’s passion for tigerfish is well documented and has taken her from the Botswana and Zambia to Cameroon via Tanzania (several times). The thrill of targeting hard fighting freshwater fish has ignited an interest in fishing for golden dorado.

That said, Charlotte is never one to focus on just one species and the rivers of Bolivia have much to offer including pacu and yatorana. The lure of being able to sight fish for dorado is a big one, conditions allowing.

Having grown up in Africa, wild and remote places will always appeal to Charlotte and her innate love of flora and fauna made the opportunity to head to Bolivia one not to be missed.
