Tarpon fishing trips on RIO SAN JUAN

San Juan River -  Rio San Juan

 Border river between Costa Rica and Nicaragua



Rio San Juann River is 120 miles long,  start in Nicaragua Lake ( My lodge is located  in National park los Guatuzos.. Precisely where Rio San Juan start at the corner with Rio Frio and Nicaragua Lake ), River run from the Lake to the Caribbean it is the only communication of the Great Nicaragua lake ( Cocibolca) with the sea.( Caribbean ) . 

Nicaragua lake 100 miles x 70 miles is the greatest lake in Central America it is "World famous for the presence of Salt water fish in it's Quiet Fresh water  Giant Tarpon, Saw fish, Shark, Snook..????? Obviously also Fresh water fish are present as Rainbow bass, Mojara, Gar, Machaca.. 

A Strange  mix  at 120 miles from sea????  witch fascinate famous Investigators:   Commandant Jacques Yves Cousteau  came here studying in El Banco de Arena precisely at the corner of the Lake with Rio Frio and Rio San Juan where my Fishing lodge is located... Also Thomas Thornson from University of Nebraska , studied for many years wrote a  book "The fish of Nicaragua Lake"... In 2010 we received  the Tarpon investigation team of Miami University .....in  March 2014 we have been filming the NAT GEO MONSTER FISH SHOW... 

  We observe all year round a tremendous  quantity of Tarpon  size 60lb/250lb+, going up and down river..., 

There is no specific month, this is all year round. Usual catch are 90lb till 200lb ...and bigger..  Some  Tarpon migrate... some stay around for a while but will return at sea... Feeding is easy they become  very very big. Due to tannin in the water these giant fish are different color than the common  Silver King: the  biggest tarpon here are  black on the back and dark green/golden on the side... 

It will sound absolutely Incredible  but  we released fish estimated close or more? than  300lb.

Our fishing trips are in  Optimum condition..   Meaning quiet Jungle River.. There are no waves here, no hard Bara to pass, we always fish in quiet fresh water aboard Sport fishing boat with central T Top... 

TARPON  FISHING , Conventional or Fly can be on light tackle   We may  fish trolling then casting once we locate the "Active fish"... I mostly use Rapala Lures as Super Shad Rap SSR14, or Floating Magnum 14 and 18.

We troll, we cast Spinnning, Bait Casting, Use Braided or Nylon, Circle hooks...  we also  fly fish ...   All  depend of Guest expectations. 

For beginner Tarpon anglers we use 25lb 40lb lines...Specific conditions and Guides knowledge allow  Anglers to fish with   light tackle... . With good technique  these tackles are  strong enough whatever the size of fish.

 Fly fishing is available in specific area...We use  number 12, 13, 14...these fly heavy equipment are necessary due to size of fish but for tippet you decide.

Many time "'we have been beaten  IGFA  Tarpon World Record .."  Tarpon Class line 12lb,  Men ,Women  Then all Tackle Junior, boys and Girle, also Children...  Reason why "these record" are not official is than we do not want to kill Tarpon ..witch unfortunately is a must with I.G.F.A  Actual World Record Rules. 

A 200lb tarpon is around 25 years old would be a real pity to kill such a creature... 

We Catch and Release all Tarpon

Calculated on 12 years of activity, our average day for tarpon fishing  is 10 bites...6 fish jumped, two/ three release to the boat.

At my knowledge this situation of top Tarpon fishing all year round is Unique in the world.

I insist  there is no real best time in the year to come...Tarpon are present all year round...


RAINBOW BASS FISHING  (Panachronis Dovii ) . A  very strong fish, very violent .. a lot of fun on light tackles. We go for them at Solentiname Archipelago on Nicaragua Lake..., 20 minutes away from our  fishing lodge. World record for this fish: 14lbs is in Nicaragua... It has been overbeaten last year 1999 by a 24lb and an 18lb Still in Nicaragua...I do not know if these record have been officially registered at IGFA. For Rainbow  we fish as well Conventional or Fly... Usual size of fish we catch is between 5lb till 10lb


SNOOK  FISHING. Sometime caught in Solentiname archipelago , Close from Lodge in Santa fe (  International Tournament 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, ..  )  down Rio san Juan  in the area of Sabalo, Pocosol, El Castillo. 

Two kind of Snook are present here, the Calva...up to 6/7lb and then the big Cola Amarilla. So far our biggest weighed snook  is 42 lb. .we report several fish estimated  close or bigger than  50lb lost to the boat


Considering lodging during your fishing vacations in San Juan River and  Solentiname there are a lot of Recent Changes. A few years ago there were absolutely nothing. In  2005 I built a comfortable Fishing Lodge "La Esquina del Lago" at the corner of the Lake with Rio San Juan

Apart from my Fishing Lodge  located in Wild life Reserve of Los Guatuzo in front of San Carlos, several  nice other hotel opened  on River and Lake  shores, in Solentiname Archipelago, Saballo, El Castillo, we may go and stay  there  all will  depend where best fishing is when Visitors  come..  all these places offer , comfortable lodging and good meals...


The area offer fantastic discovery for Nature lovers: Virgin Jungle Wild Life , Bird watching, Historical site..... ...Very  important Local people are very very   friendly with the still few tourist coming...For lunch time we stop at their places  ..share a bit of their life...

Fishing trips I offer are obviously  very different from usual Fishing vacations offered in Costa Rica and Nicaragua...

 My lodge La Esquina del Lago is our Headquarter but  we move, in a 100 miles  area..so we sleep on Spots in other Hotel.no long boar ride.. Between August and November we also may go till the Caribean sea 120 miles away going down all Rio San Juan ....

I am pleased to offer a mix made of Top fishing, Tropical Jungle life, Adventures, History, Discovery. and contact with Local people..

I have special attention  for good lodging and meals.  Also very important is the integration in the local life: we eat on the river banks at Rancho or home of friends, we go in town, at the market.. etc etc.. One of my guest told me than to describe  my trips I should say:

" Why only fish when you can have much more..."  

Nicaragua is nowadays  a safe and quiet country MOST IMPORTANT  It is still an AUTHENTIC DESTINATION... Time to come ...Country start to open to tourism...

Area is easily reach from San Jose Costa Rica  with a 5 hours car Transfer... 

Faster and easier transfer from Managua 3 hours  with the new Panamerican Highway..or  a 50mn flight over the lake to the town of San Carlos ( 2 flights a week) Airport is 10 mn away from my lodge..

We meet Guests  at International airport of San Jose or Managua. 

I recommend to use one of My all Include Discovery&Fishing Package

5th of September 2011

In a few weeks..On the 14th and 15th of September will be take place  the 51th Edition of Rio San Juan International Fishing Tournament we always win Trophies since we start to participate every year since 12 years...  in the last two edition we did especifically  well...

We hope this year it will be the same.. This year we will have 6 Boats in the competition each with 2 pro Guides trained by San Carlos Sport Fishing.. and two or three Guests aboard...

Preceding Reports & News  is from January 2011...

 Long ago...  I wish to clarified than as every year  we also  had good constant fishing in  February, March, April, receiving Gests coming from all over the world...Fishing has been Slower  after in  May and  June, ...These two months are in our full summer.. Very hot days, burning sun .. Few water in rivers .. So very hot water and tarpon become lazy.. Feed ( are active ) at Night ..  We still got many  but more dificult ...

From begining of july river is growing and tarpon are on again.. Coming up river to Rio Frio and the Great Lakefrom the Caribean. July, August has been good months  it will  the same till end of April 2012

Note   As every year fishing as been from where river start at Nicaragua Lake, ( San Carlos ..) and also as usually going  down river to maximum el Castillo located 40 miles away. ( Also to End of River 120 miles away but this is another story..I will make a special report...)

It is  well known  than on first 40 miles there are a lot of Tarpon all year round ...

But what really count  is not to watch Tarpon Rolling   It is  to have Pro Guides aboard than will put Guests on  spots where Tarpon are Actives...   

Tarpon are Constantly moving  location of these Biting area  change constantly... A few days here a few days there 

Activity may be as close as in  front of my San Carlos Lodge or in Rio Frio... Or at el pitasso, Santa fe, Medio Qesso, palo de arco, Close by La esperanza, la Gnoca, el Rodal del Toro in Sabalo, Close or in front of Castillo... At certain time of the year we will even go till the mouth of the river at San Jan de Nicaraga on the Caribean Coast ..120 miles away

I remember of a trip in the past  with Rapala and Shimano  representatives for America when we decide to first start fishing down river around Sabalo and Castillo... For two days we saw many tarpon a lot of tarpon ... But No bite whatever we were doing or  using...  Very very frustrating ...

I decide to come back up river and all start... We caught and release several 120/200lb close by my Headquarter La Esquina del Lago   Being able to  locate active fish is the Key of Sucessful Tarpon fishing Trips on Rio San Juan.... Mobility is a Must

When we go down river in order to avoid long ride and be on spots as early as 5 am,  we stay  in very nice places directly located on River Banks as Hotel Sabalo of Mr Parales Family, Sabalo lodge of Mr Choisel Praslin , or Hotel Victoria in El Castillo....

Almost six years than we use these places Guests have never been disapointed..  Good Lodging...  Good meals... Owners who care


January 2011

We have been very buzy all months Many Guests from USA, France, Canada, Finland....

Same good fishing for Tarpon on upper rio San Juan Tarpon  90lb / 200lb,

Biggest snook 20lb and Rainbow bass fishing in close from lodge Solentiname Archipelago is now fine

Fishing conditions will be the same till Minimum end of April 2011


December   2010


1) We had great Tarpon Fishing in August, September, October receiving several Groups from USA, France, Mexico, El Salvador,Costa Rica ...

Level of River is very high this year....Reason why Thousands of Tarpon are coming up river from The Caribbean sea...

I have no doubt than this good fishing will go on in  January, February, March, April in coming year 2011 ...  

I have availabilities in these months...  for Party from 1 till 12 Anglers     Pricing will be the one of Old Rate


2) International TARPON  fishing TOURNAMENT Edition Number 50th has been held on the 13 and 14th of September 2010

76 Anglers registered in the Tournament coming mostly from Costa Rica

Concerning Tarpon This year for the first time there have been two Categories

Weighted Tarpon First 140lb, second 140lb, Third 125lb, 110lb, 95lb, etc... Minimum size of fish to Qualified has been 60lb

Category Released There have been a bit of Confusion.. as Rules were not so clear ...  Video..  Photos  Winner has been the yacht  of Mr Gabriel Chamoro should have been The small boat of ALLAN Tisseaux with Minor Guadamuz  11 feet Inflatable boat...as they released 2 Tarpon  Yes the video of second was not so clear but Gabriel Chamoro  and his 4 Friends aboard their yacht only caught 1 Tarpon. For next Tournament  Comity should make a special effort in order to establish clear rules for the catch and Release Category as it is the Future....

For Snook Category even if many snook has been caught fishing has not been so good as winner fish only weighed 11 lb...

Also poor result for Rainbow bass ( To high Water ) has bigger fish has been 5 lb... 

San Carlos Sport Fishing team did well has winner  of 6 Trophies.


3) I already have Booking for high season (  January, February, March, April,  2011 ) . 

I have a limited capacity per week ( Max. 8 to 12 Anglers ) in order to preserve my quality of Service and Fishing 

 It is Time to be in contact for your reservation.. for Party of 1 till 12 Anglers if Reservation made before the End of November We will use the old Rate


4) New Rate will be on line at the end of November...


5) SPECIAL OFFER on all Include Package from Managua ( Nicaragua ) or San Jose ( Costa Rica )


6) We always try to find new spots...

In 2009 we started to organize  new Special fishing Trips Adventures Starting at Nicaragua Lake but going also all the way down Rio San Juan.. This is a mix than we offer Fresh and Salt Water First we fish our Traditional areas then we go All the way down San Juan River 120 Miles to the Caribean sea....Where we also fish at sea  Trips have been successful in all 2010 ... We will go on in 2011 




Reason of Presence of Giant Tarpon all year round at 120 miles from sea in Fresh water of Rio San Juan and Nicaragua Lake is somewhere strange  and call the attention of Marine Biologist

Thanks to Miami University, Tarpon To morrow Foundation, in  January 2009 we made the first Sat Tagging of our Giant Tarpon....

Tarpon have been released with a small transmitter on the back so could have been traced  by a NASA Satellite

Through an order via satellite tags has been  released and transmit results  ..

We  have now available  information upon  movement of fish .. Activities.. Second per second during several Months...

Point is than all released fish around Saballo - El Castillo ( on Rio San Juan at 85 Miles from sea )  immediately went back to sea ( Caribbean )

We thought than then fish will go North... On the contrary all of them went down South. Tags being released in southern Costa Rica and Panama.   We learned a lot from this study for example than tarpon ideal Temperature is around 76 Degree... Moves of Tarpon are according to variation in Temperature...Lucky we are in Rio San Juan and Nicaragua Lake as year water temperature average is precisely around 76 Degree ...As all year round we have around lots of Sardines we start to understand why Tarpon comes and some stay here...We now monitor the river temperature. It is amazing to see than a few change in Temperature have so much influence on Tarpon activity..

A few words About us  


For more than ten years we have strived to work in the concert with the peoples in the Rio San Juan/San Carlos areas.  We wish to thank all of them for accepting us into their lives in this fragile ecosystem and for treating us as a neighbor and friend. 


Their approval of all of our efforts is heartfelt appreciated.  They have watched our projects grow to fruition and several have become directly involved.  Ten local Nicaraguan families now derive their livelihood from our projects.


We are  located close from town but in peace of  an unspoiled  National Park, Los Guatuzos living in total connection with mother Nature... Wild life, Birds, Caiman, Monkeys.. I own the 20 acres Property who has three water front: Nicaragua Lake, Rio San Juan, Rio Frio,,,, Lodge (2006) is a very comfortable place,  integrated in the Reserve . Many Guests say than I built a Little Paradise...


Conscious of our Responsibilities ..  We respect and constantly act  in order to preserve Rio San Juan unique resources and Natural beauty..


Lodge is 100%  Nature friendly:  Solar Energy, Water is purified rain water than we collect from the roofs.. also Full black water treatment...


We act daily ... We promote Preservation... Finance Investigations,.. Train Nature Guides in Sport fishing, Birding... 

 With the schools we organized special days upon Environment for San Carlos Children ,.. A speech, a lunch, a tour in National park of Los Guatuzos .. All these children witch are the future will not for``get what they saw, what they learned that day...

We organized with Miami University the first ever Tarpon Sat Tag in Central America Etc..

We also have a special fund to help the community... .

 So far yes fishing is regulated in Rio San Juan enforcement done by Marena but there is no official Individual Fishing License in Nicaragua so no resource apart the outfitters annual fees- In order to be able to help  I keep a Percentage  of what Guest pay me in a Bank account so always have fund to help any good cause related to environment ..
