If you’re looking for a fishing adventure that few others will ever experience, Golden Dorado fishing Bolivia is a jungle adventure like none other. 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.

Bolivia Golden Dorado are the primary target.

But you will also encounter Muturo (a.k.a. Jau); Pacu or Pirapitinga; Sabalo; Surubi or Striped Catfish; Tabarana- The Silver Dorado; and Yatorana.

You will be fishing the Casare’ River, which is located in an indigenous territory. The destination is at the point where the Bolivian Amazon and the Eastern slopes of the Andes Mountains meet. This is one of the most isolated and remote places in the world. The structure of the Casare River allows for it to be fished by wading or drifting. It even offers opportunities to sight cast at fish.

The most unique characteristic of this fishery is the ability to catch trophy Bolivia Golden Dorado (and an array of other species) on the fly, in a small mountain-stream-type river like that of the Rocky Mountains. In addition, you are surrounded by jungle that is alive with an incredible collection of plants and wildlife.

The landscape here is simply surreal in beauty, with its lush jungle covering the hills and mountains that choke the banks of this clear water river. The isolation and remoteness of this area has kept it pristine, holding healthy populations of fish in quantities seldom seen in any river these days

Having spent their younger years fishing all over Bolivia in search of only the best fisheries, this team of fishing guides is comprised of a tough, adventure-hungry, up-for-anything group of guys. They have explored places that no man has been to before. It’s their passion for fishing that has naturally led them to want to share their experiences with those looking for a fishing adventure only few will ever experience.

The main camp comes fully equipped and acts as the base camp for the Bolivia golden dorado fishing expedition.

The camp consists of large safari tents with comfortable beds and meshed in dining areas. You will feel right at home in the jungle. Clients will have the use of camp showers, simple flushable toilets, and electricity for lighting and to power electronics.

Well equipped and comfortable Expedition Camps are set up on the spot.

These camps are needed in the most remote of areas, during extensive explorations that take us far enough away from or in between our main camps. These have a slightly more rustic construction, but still have solar showers and an outhouse style toilet. In these camps, more of the outdoors experience can be had. You’ll bathe in the river, sleep closer to the jungle, and hear more sounds all around your tent. Animal tracks can and will be seen all around the campsites. Monkeys and other fauna will come check you out as they probably haven’t ever seen a human before!

Join us on this amazing fly fishing excursion for Bolivia Golden Dorado! Due to its remote nature, this trip takes lots of planning, so please make your reservations as early as possible.

There's a reason I keep booking this steelhead fishing trip!
Second time I’ve done this particular trip. The steelhead run was awesome! The food was even better than the first time, which is hard to imagine, and our guide is the best there is! If catching big fish is your thing I highly recommend booking through Outdoors International.

I expected big trout on this trip based on all the stories I've read over the years, and I was not disappointed! I broke my own personal best rainbow trout record at least SIX times on this trip, with the biggest being a 16 pound beauty.

I will be going again soon!
