This misty reservoir has spread its net of tributaries and canals across Beni Department in Bolivia. It’s almost always hot and humid here. Every once in a while, the sound of fish playing in the muddy water carries across the mist. Hills covered in tropical vegetation, birdsongs, occasional patter of rain, and most of all the rich fauna of the Bolivian rivers attract fishing enthusiasts from all over the world. These waters are inhabited by a wide range of species, from the tiny colorful Leporinus to the giant Catfish. The word is that experienced and lucky anglers can even catch a Unique Redtail Catfish or a Red Peacock Bass!

Starting points

Los Cardos Village

Los Cardos Village

This fishing village is situated on the north-east bank of the river. Most dwellings are raised on stilts against the river flooding, and some of their thatched roofs peek out of the evergreen vegetation. If you head along the bank, you’ll find a picturesque cableway outside the village, just like in adventure movies. The soil is sandy clay. The slope is rather steep, but in most areas you can freely reach the water to set a fishing spot. The locals especially favor the golden-colored Apapa, calling them the "river gold".

Viejo Vado Boat Station

Viejo Vado Boat Station

This boathouse to the south of the village is where boats are moored. Villagers use it as a starting point for their fishing trips or rent out their boats to those wishing to hunt for some fish on their own. The steep bank near the landing pier also makes a good fishing spot. However, if you go further south, the bank will start to rise sharply. Heading east from the boathouse, you’ll come upon a tributary with a local landmark — a small submerged ship. Lots of various fish dwell nearby, and you might even be lucky to catch the monstrous local Payara.

Chiri Islet

Chiri Islet

This islet’s name means “cold” in the local language, which can probably be explained by the frequent mists or cool air streams sweeping its shores. Judging by old fire-pits, locals often make fires here to keep warm. A small unkempt shelter adds to the feeling of abandonment, because nobody seems to live here today apart from rare visiting anglers from the village. However, the fish is definitely not abandoning this place any time soon. Next to the islet there are several shoals as well as deep bottom pits favored by catfish. The shore is clay, rocky and low-sloped, which makes for a most pleasant fishing experience.


Sacha Kallpa

Sacha Kallpa

Local residents have named this place Sacha Kallpa, which stands for “Mighty Tree”. Here, beside a lonely hut, it seems the time has stopped thousands of years ago. The villagers know they can chance upon Peacock Bass and the rare Tambaqui in the southern areas of the Marron River, so they fish there sometimes. They often leave their tackle in the hut and might stay inside to wait out the rain. The small landing pier nearby is convenient for casting straight from it or tying up a boat. If you decide to fish from land, remember that the bank becomes steeper to the north of the hut.


Selva

Selva

The river’s western tributary ends in a small lake surrounded by the impenetrable jungle, with tall pale Palo Blanco trees peeking out here and there. Unsurprisingly, there are only a few landing spots, since just as you have cleared an access point to the bank, nature is quick to reclaim its own with lianas and other vegetation. But here on the quiet standing waters, you will be rewarded by hours of exciting boat fishing experience, while listening to sounds of tropical birds and animals.


Anku

Anku

Take your boat to the middle of the river’s western tributary, and you’ll find yourself in a shallow but fast-flowing canal. The narrow waterway stretches for hundreds of miles in between the grassy banks. The brown water is occasionally speckled with floating weeds and salvinia. In the very northern part of the canal a wide-branching tree sprouts from the water: a beautiful tranquil Amazon landscape like an invitation to a fishing retreat. If you have long been planning a hunt for Piranhas, this is the best place you can find!
