FISHING IN PERU

PERU - adventure Sport-Picture- Fishing Peru is without a doubt a privileged and diverse country, possessing a majority of all the major types of microclimates and a large percentage of all the flora and fauna of the world. For this reason, Peru is considered a true "dream destination" for sports fishermen.

Peru is divided by three unique regions: THE COAST, THE MOUNTAINS (ANDES) AND THE JUNGLE (AMAZON).

¿What do we catch in each region?

THE COAST AND HUMBOLDT CURRENT:

Peru, located on the western side in the center of South America, has 2,800 kilometers of Pacific Ocean coast. PERU - adventure Sport-Picture- Fishing The cold waters of the Humboldt Current influence over 75% of the coast; the northern 25% of the coastline is influenced by warmer tropical currents. Therefore, deep-sea fishing for Black Marlin, and yellow fin tuna is possible offshore along the northern coast and inshore in the northern mangrove swamps you can find Sea bass, snook and grouper.


The Southern coast, characterized by cold waters, is especially suited for fishing from the shore or rocky cliffs to catch Flounder, sea bass and other species such as Chita.


THE ANDEAN MOUNTAINS:

Snows thawing from the Andean mountains forms numerous lakes and rivers along the edges of the Andes of Peru and is considered a great habitat for Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout. Specimens of more than 7 kilos have been captured in lakes, flyfishing and spin fishing. While you may not always find a giant trout the Andean lakes are famous for the large numbers of 700 -900 g trout. Trout season is at its peak between May and November, spin fishing using light rods and #1 - #3 Mepps lures.


THE AMAZON JUNGLE AND AMAZON BASIN:


The Amazon Basin comprise almost 75% of Peru’s land mass. The rivers and lakes of the Amazon Basin are full of a large and varied number of gamefish such as Peacock Bass, Giant Oscars, Surubi, Zungaro and Payara, considered one of the world’s best fresh water trophy fish.

Amazon Basin fishing it Peru is at its peak June -October, using light to heavy spin fishing equipment depending on the type of fish you hope to catch.
