Rio Colorado Lodge Fishing Details
Fishing Rio Colorado Lodge, Costa Rica
Rio Colorado Lodge
Fishing includes tarpon
which can be taken any month of the year, and the Rio Colorado
is the only Fishing Costa Rica
resort in the area that remains open year round. The dry season, from January through May, is considered the peak season in the quiet river and lagoons for tarpon
as the aerial acrobats swarm in by the thousands to spawn. We have also had outstanding sport as late as July and early August, but in the fall the sea is calm and the fish move to the ocean, providing prime action along the coast. fishing Rio Colorado Costa Rica is good year around.
Snook are taken casting, trolling, surf fishing and even on flies. Small snook, called "calba" move into the rivers in November-December and provide furious action, with 20 to 80 fish per rod not an unusual catch. The Calba average about five pounds, so light tackle is in order. There are always a few up to 30 pounds mixed in. The best surf fishing and trolling are near the river mouth in the late fall when the monsters from 25 pounds on up are usually caught. You're also likely to tie into a big jack crevalle, bonita dorado or mackerel while fishing in the sea.
Light tackle gamesters including guapote, mojarra, machaca, and drum are taken in the rivers, creeks and estuaries 12 months of the year, so don't forget a light bait casting or spinning outfit.
