Overview
The best fresh water fishing in Panama is in the Panama Canal. This half-day tour starts with 6:30 am pick-ups, and a drive to the former U.S Canal Zone town of Gamboa. Fishing takes place in Gatun Lake, the artificial man-made navigation channel elevated 85 feet (26m) above sea level. We'll cruise next to the transiting ships and go off the side channels best for catching Snook, Tilapia, Peacock Bass and Tarpon but also to observe wildlife. We’ll fish around the Monkey Islands (Isla Akee, Isla Barbacoa, and Isla San Pablo) unique for bio-diversity. Our trip includes Water, Snacks, Beverages, bait and equipment. You have the option of catch and release or to have your fish for lunch, the Gamboa dock has locals who can prepare your catch with patacones (fried plantains) (Price not included)*. Gatun Lake of the Panama Canal guarantees a KINGFISHER experience you can't miss. Drop-offs are 1:30 pm approx.
