Secure Lodge is the newest dorado program hosting six spin fishing guests per week. Located within the rugged Indian Territory of Bolivia, this new option in the Tsimane portfolio allows spin fishermen to enjoy this incredible dorado resource. You will fish the Secure River and its tributaries offering varied types of waters during the week. Their well-planned rotation has anglers on new water every day so you not only experience this virgin mountainous rainforest, but also fish a range of waters that are home to amazing species including dorado, pirapitinga, catfish and yatorana.
Guests will fish for six full days on distinct sections of the Secure River and its tributaries. The program is designed specifically for our spin fishing guests so they may enjoy the mighty battle of the dorado. You'll have opportunities for pirapitinga, catfish and yatorana – all on spinning gear.
