Fishing, June 15th - October 15th

2020

Go where no man, or woman fishes; with a rod and reel

 

Details and Cost here

This summer we will be doing a Fly Fishing Float Plane Expedition to several remote “Green” lakes, and Outback Rivers, in search of sizable Peacock Bass, Arapaima, Tiger Catfish, and Giant Wolf Fish.

 

Our last expedition was not a trip to your grandfather’s boat ramp, we pulled a 25ft Dugout Canoe 4k through dense, remote, and dangerous Rainforest to fish Lake Yarina, landlocked and packed with Pacu, Oscar, and other exotic species.

 

The Lodge Amazon team is on the ground this January and February doing reconnaissance on a half a dozen locations for this unique fishing event. Our object is to fly into these remote lakes and rivers and seek out the unfished waters. Techniques include; Fly Fishing, Tenkara, Conventional rod reel, and Native Cucama style.

 

For more information and pricing for the June through August Fly N Fish expedition, send Ken a message here. We will email you our Itinerary and cost.

 

 

Fishing, Oct. 25th - Nov. 1st

Go where no man, or woman fishes; with a rod and reel

 

Our challenge is to catch the world’s largest fresh water fish on light tackle; Fly, Bass/Carp, and Inshore style - capturing the IGFA record. 

 

Our last expedition was not a trip to your grandfather’s boat ramp, so consider your personal psychological and physical fitness before you sign up. We pulled a 25ft Dugout Canoe 4k through dense, remote, and dangerous Rainforest.

 

The Amazon Refuge Lodge is situated near several lakes that have never been fished by rod and reel, and judging by their remote location the only fishing of any kind would have been by indigenous tribes on rare occasions, and then only by sticks, spears, and clubs.

Payara is a member of the Cynodontidae family; it is also called peixe cachorro, dog fish, saber toothed dogfish, tiger fish, guapeta.

Payara inhabit freshwater rivers and lakes in South America from the Orinoco to Paraguay River basins. The distribution of large payara is limited to a few places in Columbia, Venezuela, Brazil, Guyana, Peru and probably Ecuador. They prefer fast moving water, but are found in still waters of lakes and rivers as well. Payara are among the gamest of South Americas freshwater fishes, leaping when hooked and making long fast runs. They are picivorous predators that attack upward, stabbing prey with the large canine teeth and then swallowing them whole and head first.

DISTRIBUTION: South America

MAX SIZE: 44 lb / 20 kg

MAX LENGHT: 60 inches / 150 cm

Arawana

Also known as aruanã, arowana, baiano, sulamba, macaco d’áqua.
The arawana belongs to a small family of ancient fishes confined to fresh waters in Africa (1 sp), South America (3 sp), and southeastern Asia to Australia (3 sp). While the arawana reaches a respectable 4 ft (118 cm) and 20 lbs (9 kg) another of the “bonytongues” is one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world, the Arapaima, which reaches a weight of 200 kg (440 lb). It inhabits freshwater in northern South America throughout the Amazon river system, where it lives in marginal lagoons and small tributaries of large rivers
