  • Fishing Report – Kau Tapen | Week 5: Feb 3-10, 2018

    It’s Saturday and that means switchover day. It’s an exciting day for all of us here at Kau Tapen. Relief about last week’s success and excitement about what the new week will bring renders every Saturday special, plus our staff gets a bit of time off and the guides can wet their lines for a f...

  • Fishing Report – Villa Maria Lodge | Week 5: February 2-9, 2018

    This past week we hosted a great group of Swiss, American, and British anglers. It was a mix that included first-timers, second-timers, and long-time friends. And, luckily, the fishing was in tune with all the fun. It was, so far, the most productive week of the season. Our typical warm, windy summe...

    Another week is in the books and the fishing has been a rollercoaster ride indeed. While conditions were almost perfect and stable during the previous week, this week has provided us – once again – with a lot of weather changes.

    Similar to what we’ve seen the past two weeks, the river remains low, clear and in fantastic shape! We’ve also been experiencing a return to some classic January weather: warm, dry, bright sun and high winds. Stable river levels and consistent weather patterns present the perfect conditions for ...

    Fishing conditions have been optimal, and with water levels continuing to drop, we’re finding fish concentrated in the main channels. We had a few thunderstorms last week, but they didn’t bring enough rain to significantly change the shape of the Marsh or the river. Water clarity is excellent. I...

    For the first time this season, the water did not change much before the arrival of our new group. The river had been dropping at a constant pace and had cleared up to the point, where you could start fishing EMBs on floating line, without worrying that the fish wouldn’t see the fly. Short: The ri...

    The river has come into prime condition, a very comfortable level for fishing, and the clarity is about as good as it gets. The water level has continued to drop throughout the week making the fishing even more enjoyable. Wading has became super easy and casting can be short and precise.  We had re...

    “Unusual conditions“ is what would describe the past week’s fishing. The rains that had poured down during the last days of the previous fishing week have had their impact on the water: slightly high and cloudy. Already throughout Saturday, the water had started to clear up again and the color...

    Since last week, the river is down and its clarity is getting better by the day. This means that the wading is easier, but more importantly we’re seeing a return to the softer water speeds that allow sea-run browns to start settling into their usual spots. The week started with two days of high ...

    The year started with some excellent fishing, and we continue to see good numbers of dorado throughout the system. Juvenile fish are concentrated in the upper marsh. These aggressive dorado will smash almost anything, including gurglers and skated mouse patterns. In the Corriente River, on the other...
