As you cast your fishing line along the calm waters of Lake Arenal, you will have sweeping views of the gigantic Arenal Volcano.
Throughout the tour there will be a boat so other family members can just hang out on the boat and enjoy the ride together as we explore Lake Arenal.
In Lake Arenal there are three main types of fish that we’ll be fishing for: You will be delighted by the frisky nature of our Machaca fish (scientific name: Brycon behreaeon). This fish is best caught from your kayak or from the shore. The Rainbow Bass (scientific name: Parachromis dovii) lurks in the tall brush areas of the lagoon and are known to have a strong fight like its cousin the Largemouth Bass.
And the hardest to catch is the Bobo (scientific name: Joturus Pichardi) which, as we have experienced, have a good appetite for green, yellow and red lures that have good drag — but they are definitely a hard catch!
Don’t miss out on some excellent angling while you are in the Arenal Volcano area! This is the best activity for fishing enthusiasts and also works great for couples and families.
