Fishing in Latin America
Latin America has some of the best and most varied fishing in the world. Southern Patagonia is renowned for sea trout and the Lake District for browns, rainbow, and even Pacific salmon. In northern Argentina the Iberá marshlands are popular for fresh water dorado; or for fighting peacock bass try the Amazon basin. Further north, both Cuba and Venezuela’s Los Roques are famous for bonefish. The Pacific coast of Guatemala is excellent for billfish, particularly sailfish, and the Caribbean coasts of Belize, Costa Rica and Mexico offer good flat, reef and deep sea fishing
It varies from country to country but for example, the season is generally November to April in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, January to July in Venezuela and September to April in the Iberá Marshlands.
