FISHING ON THE VICHADA RIVER IN THE MATAVEN JUNGLE
The Vichada River is one of the few rivers that haven’t been explored yet in Colombia for sport fishing and the Tucunaré or Peacock Bass fishes that have been captured in this river are giant species which weight more than 26 pounds.
TUCUNARÉ LODGE has come to an agreement with the indigenous communities of the SIKUANI ethnic in the zone and special permissions has been granted to us, to be able to operate in this river and lakes that never have been fished before. We will take a maximum of 8 fishermen per week; this is to keep the area as intact as possible.
We have designed a 7 days fishing trip. 5 days of fishing the giant Tucunaré or Peacock Bass and some other species in the Vichada river on its many lakes, followed by 2 complete days of fishing in the famous Orinoco River in the Raudales of the death region, where you could capture the big Payara/Vampire Fish, Sardinata Real /Golden Fish, Bagre/CatFish, among others.
