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 is lucky enough to know!

There are many rivers on our route (Tambopata River, Madre de Dios River, Malinoski River) and many streams, creeks, lakes and streams, which makes this route much more fishable.

Important note: Catch and release is the practice in sport fishing 
or recreational fishing because that is how conservation fishing works. 
After catching, the fish are unhooked and returned to the water 
before experiencing any injury or exhaustion.
