Pluma Lodge is located within a National Park and Indigenous Indian Territory, where the Amazon jungle meets the Andes Mountains. These clear running rivers wind through jungle and mountains, affording anglers the ability to wade and sight-cast to golden dorado. This jungle environment remains in a virgin state and is arguably one of the most pristine natural expressions in the world. Based out of the comforts of the Pluma Lodge, anglers have access to three diverse rivers: the Pluma, Itirizama, and the lower Secure Rivers. The water types vary from deep pools to rugged terraced pocket water.
The Pluma River is a moderately-sized clear freestone river with incredibly beautiful jungle topography. This fascinating fly fishery offers varying types of waters and tributaries divided into various beats. The system holds four species: dorado, pirapitinga, yatorana and catfish. Fly only.
The Pluma Lodge experience is based on one jungle lodge, built entirely from sustainable hardwood. There are two smaller headwater out-camp options. The main Pluma Lodge features four cabins and sleeps eight anglers. Each cabin has spring beds, private bathrooms with hot water and electric light.
As a general rule, 7 to 9 weight rods rigged with tropical grade floating/sinking lines. Wet wading is the standard. A complete list of gear will be sent upon trip confirmation. Frontiers can provide expert advice on finding the right gear for your trip.
Pluma Lodge is best accessed from Miami, Florida, via American Airlines. Guests will fly into Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
