Experience the best Panamá Canal Gatun Lake

Sport Fishing tour in Panamá

Fabulous Day with Wonderful Guides

TripAdvisor review: Fishing and Photography Combo on Gatun Lake, Panama Canal

I have been on Gatun Lake fishing and feeding monkeys several times, but this trip with Andrew, Pauline and Johnny was the best. The boat was the cleanest and nicest that I have been on. The photography equipment was top rate and gave us a chance to take our own Nat Geo pictures. Andrew was outstanding at educating us on the wild life from plants to critters. Pauline provided an outstanding lunch. Johnny was an outstanding driver and fishing assistant. We hooked a bunch of fish and had a great time.

I will do this again the future since the team are now our friends for life.

Couldn't have asked for better.

Panamá Canal Fishing  

6 hours

Panamá Canal | Gatun Lake | Rio Chagres

For the fishing, we provide you with all the rods, tackle and live bait that you will need for the day.  We target Peacock Bass and Snook.  We will also be on the lookout for feeding, but very elusive, Tarpon and Jacks.
Throughout the tour, there will be a Guide (Owner/English) and licenced boat Captain (Spanish), who both double as Wildlife and Fishing Guides.
Enjoy tea, coffee, cool refreshing beverages, fruit, nutritious snacks and on the 6-hour tour, a picnic brunch onboard. 

On arrival at the Marina you will be met by your Captain and Andrew.  Once seated, you will be briefed and then we head up a section of the Panamá Canal, into the lake, around several of the Monkey Islands and then into secluded and pristine Rainforest bays and inlets for a wonderful morning of fishing.
Note: Route and times may change depending on the conditions and circumstances.
