Colorado River runs from Lake Nicaragua and is coloured a brown murky appearance and in each day it empties thousands of gallons of fresh water in to the sea and is packed full of fish attracting nutrients. Where the murky brown water hits the blue waters of the open ocean, it gives all the Sardines and other baitfish the perfect place to hide. This daily food chain is the source to hundreds of fish with the Tarpon being at the top of the chain and this gathering of baitfish is the reason why the Tarpon reach such huge sizes and on every trip, there is every chance of hooking fish between 120Lb to 200Lb.
Silver King Lodge in Costa Rica has over the last few years built a reputation as one of the best huge Tarpon destinations around the world. Silver King Lodge is located in a lush tropical environment on the banks of the Rio Colorado on the northeast coast of Costa Rica.
Although most anglers head to this area for the amazing Tarpon fishery and the chance of 20 or so hook-ups a day, sometimes something a little calmer is required and that’s why our guides have researched further upstream in freshwater and have found some amazing little rivers that hold fish such as ‘Calba’, commonly known as Snook, which migrates upstream to spawn these fish average around 6-8Lb. The other species that are on offer just offshore are Dorado, Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish and Marlin. Whether you are a fly or lure angler and are looking for the best Tarpon fishing on this planet and possibly the chance of some fantastic offshore fishing, then Silver King Lodge is the place for you.
You will be fully guided on this holiday by local guides who know these waters very well.
