Tsimane Agua Negra Camp is designed for just 4 people who will fish two main river systems, the Secure and the Agua Negra. Each season hundreds of thousands of baitfish migrate up the greater Secure system and with them come thousands of large, aggressively feeding Dorado. Here it is common to see packs of fierce Dorado herding baitfish into the shallows and mercilessly ripping through them, which makes some of the most exciting fly fishing to be found. The Secure is larger and often carries a good amount of colour.
Agua Negra holds the best waters for sight casting in Tsimane, with big dorados in shallow waters. Also the medium section of the Sécure river is plenty of sh on the structure, and the Chimoro stream is perfect for Yatorana and medium size dorados on light weight tackle.. In addition, below the confluence of the Agua Negra River and you also have an additional 30 km of the larger Secure River. This additional section offers the biggest water in the whole of the Tsimane program and fishing these sections is not too dissimilar to classic Salmon & Steelhead fishing.
Typically this river will be fished from a motorized super-dugout but at times anglers will get out to wade fish. The Secure has lots of water and fishes well both above and beneath the camp. Additionally, anglers will hike 15-20 minutes overland from to camp to the Agua Negra River. Once there, they will get into traditional pole powered dugouts and work their way either up or downstream. It is common to get out of the boat in shallow regions or to walk around fast water sections as a way to assist the native boatmen in making upstream progress. For the most part the walking and wading is relatively easy with sandy beaches and pools with lots of woody debris and structure. For the real adventuresome anglers Agua Negra also offers one or two night backpacking-style trips to the upper reaches of the system. These upper waters are the easiest to reach of Tsimane’s camping options. Food and shelter will be very simple but if this is what you like you are in for an incredible experience with some of the most pristine wilderness sight fishing imaginable. Combine all this amazing fly fishing with Tsimane’s 1st class guiding and luxury tented camp in the middle of nowhere and you are in for a real fishing adventure and one that will stick with you for a very long time.
In addition to your native boatmen, there will be one professional fly fishing guide for every two anglers. These guides will have strong angling and English skills. While this trip is not physically demanding, a fair amount of walking is required, making it best suited for active anglers.
