Tsimane - Agua Negra Lodge

National Park and Indigenous Territory Bolivia; fly fishing for Golden Dorado.

Tsimane is located within a National Park and Indigenous Territory where the Amazon Jungle meets the Andes in Bolivia. The landscape is incredible, and its rivers are streams of clear water running through the jungles and the mountains with wading and sight-casting-friendly banks. Freshwater golden dorado are the target, and Agua Negra Lodge blends the best aspects of fly fishing: sight-casting, freestone wet wading, light fly tackle, and stalking four tenacious game fish species reaching significant sizes. The location also has great pirapitinga, yatorana, and surubi fishing.

Fishing

For six full days, you fish the waters of Agua Negra and its tributaries, including the tiny and prolific Chimoro Jungle Creek. The Agua Negra is a smaller tributary of the Secure River and also includes a remote out-camp on the headwaters where you can overnight camp during your stay.

Accommodation

The Agua Negra Lodge experience is based from one comfortable jungle lodge. It offers safari-style double occupancy tent cabins on elevated wooden platforms. Each tent offers spring beds, private bathroom with flush toilet, hot water, and electric light.

Gear

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.
