Costa Rica Fishing Charters Fresh water Fishing
Freshwater Fishing - Lowland Rivers
Once the rivers reach the lowlands they are bigger, wider and calmer and are home to an interesting mix of species. It is in these waters that Snook usually reach their limits of inland migration and where Machaca and Roncador also reach their limits of seaward travel. Some of the bigger specimens of each species can be encountered so this is typically bigger rod and heavy shock/bite tippet territory. These fisheries are usually worked from drift boats and on foot due to the quiet, serene nature of the environment and the wary, spooky traits of the larger fish that inhabit the area. Jon boats with 4 stroke outboards are used only seasonally when longer distances have to be traveled. Lowland trips are done on the Rio Savegre, Naranjo, Parrita, Paquita, Guavo, Baru, and many other smaller creeks and canals.
Freshwater Fishing - Mountain Rivers
Central Pacific Coast Mountain River Fishing
There are several different watersheds on the Central Pacific Coast that each contain large main river drainages that are fed by numerous tributaries and literally hundreds of small creeks and streams. Most of these watersheds are small in area geographically, but have many fishing opportunities due to the mountainous nature of the landscape and it's proximity to the ocean. The waters are warm but the environments are mountainous with many of the upper river sections providing whitewater action year around. The predominant species in these waters is the Machaca which is a favorite for it's aggressive nature when feeding on or near the surface, and for it's acrobatics. Roncador (Pacific Grunt), Mojarra, Guavina, and Tepe-Machin are common to this area and in 2007 the International Game Fish Association world record for Roncador (7 lbs. 2 oz.) was caught in these waters. Even though some of the mountain trips start over 450feet in altitude, we can find saltwater species like Snook and Cubera Snapper cruising in the area. Mountain river trips are done either on foot, from drift boats and duckies, or both.
