Tsimane, Bolivia 

Tsimane has three distinct operations, Pluma Lodge, Agua Negra Camp and Secure Camp, all located within a 25-mile radius in the headwaters of Bolivia’s Secure watershed. The Secure watershed is one of the Amazon’s southernmost tributaries and its’ isolated population of large migratory dorado make it one of South America’s most unique fisheries. The hardest part of planning the trip is deciding which of the three options to select, as they are all highly desirable and productive. All trips begin with an overnight in Santa Cruz followed by a two-hour small aircraft charter flight to a remote jungle airstrip. They all have remarkably comfortable accommodations and gourmet meals, and the vast majority of the fishing is done while wading. Guests move about in large motorized dugouts or smaller traditional pole-pushed dugouts captained by skilled native boatmen and are guided by professional English speaking guides. Irrespective of the program, all trips into the heart of the Bolivian jungle are best suited to adventuresome travelers who enjoy wade fishing and a fair amount of walking.


Pluma Lodge, Bolivia 

Pluma Lodge overlooks the Pluma river and has four handsome double occupancy hardwood cabins as well as a handsome main lodge building where meals and cocktails are served. Additionally Pluma is very strategically located beneath the confluence of two world class systems, the Upper Pluma and the Itirizama. Downstream of the lodge there are miles of clear water on the main stem Pluma. Beneath that anglers can access more than 30 km of the larger main stem Secure by motorized boat. These lower beats are the biggest water in the Tsimane program and reminiscent in some ways of classic steelhead fishing. For hearty anglers Pluma offers one or three night trips to primitive out-camps on both the Upper Pluma and Itrizama. These camps represent the ultimate jungle adventure and offer unparalleled sight fishing for large dorado and pacu. Any and all of the many beats available through Pluma can offer the best fishing imaginable.

Agua Negra Camp,Bolivia

The Agua Negra Camp is a remote yet luxurious tent camp/lodge perched on a bluff overlooking the Secure River. Roughly 100 yards away is the small native village of Agua Negra, which makes this camp by far the most culturally rich of the Tsimane experiences. Here anglers will enjoy very comfortable double occupancy safari tents with attached baths as well as the comfort of the main lodge building where drinks and meals are served. The fishing will be done on the main Secure as well as on the Agua Negra River. The Agua Negra is smaller and offers not only big dorado but the region’s most forgiving terrain as well as the greatest diversity of species including large pacu, pira pita and the elusive striped catfish known as surubi.
