Caño Bocon is an all-inclusive package & guests stay in the 2020 remodelled luxury tent & camp
Fishing at Caño Bocon
Caño Bocón is a blackwater river in the eastern part of Colombia. This Indian Puinave reserve is famous for the size of its monster Peacock Bass. Being in a restricted access reserve guarantees guests have exclusive 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 rainforest wildlife.
We recommend 8-10 weight rods to help turn over big flies & fight fish hard to keep them from the structure.
Reels must be able to withstand significant runs & surges. Importantly, the drag must be able to set tight & remain smooth.
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 the location changes 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.
A local experienced Puinave fisherman and an English-speaking translator will help you make the most of your amazon fishing experience in the most remote and virgin sections of rainforest, targeting fish that do not regularly see flies.
Getting to the fishing
Guests fly into Bogotá, Colombia, at El Dorado International Airport (BOG). Following an overnight stay, you will transfer to the charter airport for the charter flight to the Amazon jungle, where your expedition begins.
Itinerary for Caño Bocon
Arrive in Bogotá, where you will be met by a representative & transferred to the Marriott Courtyard Hotel for the night.
Early the following day, you will be met by the leading guide and head out to the Puerto Inírida (8 am flight), where a driver will be waiting to pick you up for the short ride to the town’s dock where you depart on the fishing skiffs. We will make it to camp at approximately 4 pm.
Day 3 – 8
guests will move further upstream each day, targeting the most likely looking water for monster Peacock Bass. You will encounter the Speckled Peacock Bass & the Orinoco Peacock Bass, plus other species, including Paraya (Vampire Fish), Sardinata, Pacu & Catfish.
On the 7th fishing day (day 9), guests will begin to move back downstream, fishing the promising spots on the way. Guests fish until around 4:30 pm when the skiffs meet up and head back to Puerto Inirida together.
Our last night will surely be a mixed bag of emotions as the group shares tales of their life-changing adventure over dinner before finally calling it a night at the hotel included in the package. The next day (day 10), you will fly out of Puerto Inirida to Bogotá around noon.
