Caño Bocón is a blackwater river in the eastern part of Colombia. This area is famous for the size of its monster Peacock Bass. The entire trip you will be fishing within an Indian Puinave reserve with restricted access. This guarantees guests have sole access to the fishing water during their stay.

Each day anglers fish new waters as the guides follow the best conditions to put guests into monster Peacock Bass. You will fish two anglers per boat & anglers rotate to ensure everyone covers as much water as possible.

Live the true Amazon experience with the Puinave Indians while you chase the fish of a lifetime in an adventure destination teeming with rainforrest wildlife.

 

Rods:
We recommend 8-10 weight rods to help turn over big flies & fight fish hard to keep them from the structure.

Reels:
Reels need to be able to withstand significant runs & surges, importantly the drag must be able to set tight & remain smooth.

Lines:
You will do most of your fishing using tropical floating lines or lines with intermediate tips.

Accommodation at Caño Bocon

The camp is made of luxury tent-style accommodation, and camp is moved each day to assure rotation through the best fishing waters. Guests never sacrifice the comfort of a fixed lodge with luxury individual cabin style tents with full-size beds, & marine toilets installed at each portable camp. All meals are designed & served by trained chefs.
