Maine Saltwater Fishing Report: Costa Rica Bound!!!
Drooling over the pages of your most recent saltwater Fly Fishing Magazine??? Dreading the next four fishless months??? We think we've found the Ultimate cure for cabin fever!!!
This coming March, Super Fly Charters will be traveling with a group of anglers to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Sailfish will be the primary target but Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna and Dorado will all hopefully be joining us on our offshore trips. Inshore we'll pursue Roosterfish, Snook, Bluefin Trevally and a myriad of other saltwater species!!! We may even venture east to the caribbean side to take some shots at the mammoth Tarpon that gather around the Rio Parismina and Rio Colorado regions.
On the Pacific coast there are also good opportunities to wet wade and fish the more tropical rivers for Snook, Drum, Machaca and Guapote using Fly & light tackle.
Offshore Pacific fly fishing has been very good along the Central and Northern coast, with lots of success on Sailfish, Marlin, Giant Tuna and Dorado. Inshore Coastal Pacific fly fishing is also giving up good results for Black Snook, Roosterfish and Snappers. Coastal fishing is consistently good off Golfito and the Osa Peninsula in the South and off the rocky points or river mouths in the North. Special inshore fishing trips to the northern Pacific near the Santa Rosa National Park are ideal for fishing Roosterfish and Pacific Snook. This is mainly a tidal fishery and so will depend upon the ideal tides and water conditions. Fishing the river mouths flowing into the Pacific is also very productive at present. These are mainly custom trips and are a lot of fun and a great eco-adventure. The fishing off Garza and Nosara has been very good, especially the Inshore Fishing. Photo submitted by: Capt.

Costa Rica is quickly becoming one of the most popular vacation destinations within Central America today. If not for its beautiful atmosphere, scenery and wildlife it is because of the fly fishing adventure excursions that are catching the attention of anglers everywhere. There are dozens of lodges throughout Costa Rica that have been created to cater to those who love to fish and are interested in catching a number of different game fish throughout their stay.

Some of the fly fishing lodges within Costa Rica you will want to consider include:
• Crocodile Bay Lodge
• Silver King Lodge
• Golfito Sailfish Rancho
When you book a stay with a fishing lodge throughout the country you will be provided with guided charters, English speaking tours, fishing tackle and gear rentals as well as all-day trips on the water so you will never go out without catching something spectacular.
Fly fishing and charter fishing tours are becoming extremely popular in Costa Rica today which means making your reservations ahead of time is a must. Tourists are not the only ones who enjoy fishing in this tropical paradise, many locals take advantage of these fishing lodges as well!!!
