FISHING IN THE MATAVEN JUNGLE, VICHADA RIVER
The Vichada River is one of the few rivers in Colombia that has not been explored for sport fishing, and the Peacock Bass or Tucunare are monstrous fish of more than 26 pounds that have been caught here.
TUCUNARE LODGE has reached an agreement with the indigenous communities of the SIKUANI ethnic group in the area, and special permits have been granted to operate in the river and lagoons that have never been fished before. We welcome groups of up to 8 fishermen per week, which helps us maintain the area as intact as possible.
We have designed a 7-day fishing trip with 5 days of fishing for giant Peacock Bass or Tucunare and other species in the Vichada River and its many lagoons, followed by 2 full days of fishing in the famous Orinoco River in the Raudales del muerto sector, where you can catch big Payaras/Vampire Fish, Sardinata Real/Golden Fish, Catfish, and other species.
