Fishing report # 26,. 7 th of february 2002
We had the pleasure to receive two guests from France from the 2d till the 6th of February , They where staying in Nicaragua so they came directly to San Carlos using Costena Airlines ( 55 mn fly over the Nicaragua Lake ) , coming from Granada where previour to their fishing expedition they enjoyed for a few days The hospitality of Etienne owner of Hotel Colonial.
This trip has been a mixt of fishing and discovery as guests wanted this program..so our traditional stay in San Carlos plus a night at Hospedage in the peaceful Solentiname Archipelago of Ernesto Gardenal..., and also a night at Hospedage El Castillo 35 miles down on San Juan River...a visit of the impressive fortress dominating the rapids... built to protect the River from the pirats atacks, the museum where most of our visitors are surprise by the fact than the Transcoceanic canal should have been built here and not in Panama...a lot of HISTORY there with also the Vanderbilt / Gold rush time... so a lot of "Moves" ( Julia Brava is a fast boat ) but a lot to see a lot to discover...
Even with all these moves Fishing has been great as well for Tarpon ( only big ones in this trip ) in San Juan River also the usual very good fishing for Rainbow bass, Mojara in the Solentiname.Archipelago..
