Venezuela’s largest marine park, El Parque Nacional Los Roques, is hands down one of the most consistent Bonefish fisheries on the planet. A great attraction of Los Roques is that the flats provide a wealth of opportunity for wading and stalking Bonefish, the ultimate challenge in clear water.
Nursery Tarpon are ever present in the many channels and in the shadows of the mangrove roots systems, which offer protection from larger predators. The larger fish tend to be taken in deeper water, primarily in the cooler months of the year between October and March.
Permit are increasingly caught on the flats and protection of the marine ecosystem leads to an increase in the numbers of fish landed. With good numbers of Bonefish found and a wide range of other species to go for, with firm sandy flats on which wading is positively encouraged, coupled with the ability to fish here in every month of the year, Los Roques is a fishery that should be considered by any and every saltwater angler.
Each day on Los Roques you will have the option of fishing a variety of different areas. You can choose to wade the large classic-style Bonefish flats, the area‘s famous pancake flats, or miles of white sand beaches, where large Bonefish coral schools of minnows and baitfish, eating with a reckless abandon seldom associated with Bonefish! Los Roques is truly a year round fishery.
Lying the furthest south of any Caribbean destination, the island group is unaffected by the hurricanes which blow between August and October, curtailing the season further north.
