Discover the magic of sport fishing in Tambopata, Amazon! Our fishing destinations are often in areas we prefer not to talk too much about; secret streams, hidden lakes and hard to find holes that we only share with our clients. These places are not for everyone: some require extra effort to reach, but the rewards are unmatched. Dare to join us and we will guide you through the hidden wonders of the great Peruvian Amazon, Tambopata and its places that few are lucky enough to know!


We will leave at 7 a.m. from your hotel in the city of Puerto Maldonado in our mobile unit until we arrive at the port of Capitania where we will board the boat, upstream we will sail the Madre De Dios River and Tambopata River.

Fishing in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon is a unique experience. Imagine catching big fish without seeing anyone all day. There are miles of calm waters near the Tambopata Reserve. Both rivers offer a complete variety of different types of fish. We fish both floating and sinking lines, dry and wet flies at different times of the season and throughout the day.

We are pioneers in this activity in the southern area of our country. Dominating the Madre De Dios and Tambopata rivers in the middle of the Peruvian Amazon, we have more than 5 years of experience.

Large fish often cross these rivers, feed in the reed beds, or settle along the banks, making this an obligatory stop for any angler. Although these fish can be selective, for some of our clients this is their favorite water. Some of the largest fish in the basin live in this area, and due to the general lack of visible structure, we usually fish in this area with dry flies casting to rising fish, and you will see fish you have never caught before.

In these rivers, we will find the following fish.
