Fishing trips in Ecuador: known for great peacock bass in the Amazon or great blue marlin in incredible sizes
Ecuador is the dark horse of fishing, often overlooked, but surprisingly admirable selection.The Amazon River runs through it, this immediately grants Ecuador with great fishing conditions.
Given its unknown fishing status, the river here is deserted and uncharted, making a successful fishing trip far more rewarding. Very common on the river are the great peacock bass reaching up to 20 lbs or the large catfish. Fly-fishing may also land you with pacu, arowana, and payara as more exotic choices. Rainbow trout prosper immensely in high altitude climate, as such the Andes Mountains has become a hot-spot for anglers searching for the classic trophy rainbow trout.
Top water fishing is also popular, the breathtaking scenery is often speckled with colorful dry flies. Off Salinas and Manta, the coast offers great blue marlin often reaching 1000 lbs, but also large sailfish and tuna. Along the dusted beaches, robalo is layered throughout, a delicious fish! Further across towards the rocky bays, fishing opportunities continue with reef fishing for snappers and cargo.
Ecuador creates a perfect collection of fishing for all types of anglers, from deep sea to reef and river fishing, all of equally high-quality standards.
