The water types vary from deep pools to rugged terraced pocket water.FISHINGThe Pluma River is a moderately-sized clear freestone river with incredibly beautiful jungle topography.

The project is carried out in Tipnis (Indian Territory and Isiboro Secure National Park) together with Asunta, Uswea, Palmar de Aguas Negras, Oromomo and Areruta communities. It has the entire pertinent environment authorizations issued by SERNAP (Servicio Nacional de Áreas Protegidas- National Service that deals with Protected Areas) and the Environment Department of the Plurinational State of Bolivia.You wouldn’t think we came because the fishing was just ”good”. Among all of us in the Tsimane and Untamed Angling team have been lucky to fish in many of the best fishing places in the world, from the rocky crystal clear waters of Island, to the impossible flats from Seychelles; from the Intriguing Russian Tundra to the Desolate Tierra del Fuego and so on. Of all these wonderful places, none of them moves and represents so much for all of us. Probably because this is something that has never been shown to the world before. We deeply believe that this is the ultimate fly-fishing experience.This is not a new river in Alaska or in the Amazon, a new destination in Patagonia or another flat lost somewhere in the Indic ocean, this opens a door (one of the last ones yet to be opened) in fly fishing: Fly fishing in the jungle for huge dorados in small clear water freestone rivers.It’s something like fishing an animal as aggressive as a GT, as cyclothymic as an Atlantic salmon and as acrobatics as a jumping tarpon, but inside a trout stream environment like the Madison.It may seem pretentious or exaggerated expression, but when you experience these amazing dorados of the Bolivian Amazon, you’ll see that this is an extremely well targeted thinking.Talk to us about options for your Golden Dorago fly fishing trip!
