Golden Dorado Fishing Expedition in Bolivia
Adventure Fishing for Golden Dorado in Bolivia is an experience only for the most die-hard fly fisherman with a thirst for adventure.
Explorers from Europe risked it all for gold, adventure and glory, now you can, in a small way relive their adventure on this amazing Bolivian fishing excursion for Golden Dorado in the jungles of Bolivia. These jungles are one of the only places on this Earth of ours that are still completely wild, where the fish that you encounter will probably have never been seen by a man, let alone caught.
Here are some highlights from this fishing trip in Bolivia:
- This trip is definitely not for the faint of heart, you will need an adventurous spirit for this one.
- The water levels on this river allow for it to be fished by either wading or drifting, and there are plenty of opportunities to do some sight casting.
- There are 2 Adventures that are offered: An 8 day with 6.5 days fishing and a 10 day with 8 days fishing.
- Golden Dorado are the primary target species, but you will also catch muturo, pacu, sabalo, surubi, Silver Dorado, and yatorana.
- The season runs June-October. Prime months are August- October due to water levels and clarity.
“I did this Bolivian trip a few years back and it was amazing! Here is my advice: book this trip, and then when you get there, hand your guide your rod and say “show me. If you have an adventurous spirit, you’re going to LOVE this fishing trip.” -Denis Isbister, Wild Fish Wild Places
The Culture, Nature, and People are Amazing
At Angling Frontiers one of our main objectives is protecting the environment, the cultural integrity, and way of life of the Tsimane people. To make this happen Angling Frontiers has formed an alliance with the indigenous communities. They have joined forces in protecting the flora, fauna, and culture. Angling Frontiers aims to show the world the Tsimane people’s unique home and their fascinating life but to also educate people about the factors that threaten the existence of this unique land and people. Among these, are ecological degradation, loss of biodiversity and loss of cultural identity. Working together, we will be able to stop the illegal logging and other illegal resource extractions that have plagued the area in the past, and help to rekindle the value placed on the Tsimane traditions.
We want to show the Tsimane people that they can make a better living through tourism, while still protecting their home and securing a future for their children. With this conservation project, and through catch-and-release sport fishing, we aim to contribute to their communities with not only funding but also through job opportunities, education, alternative project development and with an all-around improvement in their standard of living.
This fishing adventure takes a lot of planning due to its remote nature, so please make your reservations as early as possible.
