Private Fishing Gatun Lake

Catch those Peacock Bass in this Life Source for the Panama Canal

An all-inclusive fishing experience in Gatun Lake: the combination of a pristine rainforest and the occasional passing super tanker. You’ll be fishing in a piece of natural history as this man-made lake was created as a giant reservoir to power The Canal. The Peacock Bass was introduced to the lake after its construction and has bred like crazy. They are abundant and experienced fisherman especially enjoy the challenge of going for the larger, more elusive 5+ pounders that travel in pairs. Working the bottom in jungled, canopied inlets formed by the hundreds of miniature islands that dot the canal, surrounded by unparalleled sites of wildlife (the world birdwatching record for most species in 24 hours is held here), this is an ultimate fishing experience.

Features: 6:30 AM hotel pick.up, your own boat and expert English-speaking, fishing guide, roundtrip 35-mile transportation from Panama City to Gamboa, Hurricane Fundeck Boats (fully equipped & fueled), all fishing equipment (including live bait and lures). Also included: picnic lunch, cold drinks, beverages, snacks and an ice chest of beer.
