Extreme Fishing at the Base of Arenal Volcano

One visit to the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica in the Arenal area, is an experince of a lifetime ,to remember with the whole family. The air is fresh from the nearby jungle, the howler monkeys will wake you on most mornings and then your off to experence a day of fishing Lake Arenal. Guapote " Rainbow Bass" are the first to strike in the early am, then follows the hard fighting :Machacca" they will thrash you top water lure on most days all day long.

Water is still high but the fish are biting.

Two nice big machaca caught by Brooks from Texas on the fly rod!

Almost Full!

The lake level is high now so the fishing can be a bit slow some days. This nice male guapote was caught on a buzz bait near the grass. The lake is nice and clear and warm so that good news, it just takes more work to get some nice fish in the boat.
