Costa Rica Fishing Reports from Rio Colorado Lodge

Fishing Report Week Ending May 18, 2019
Ron Roswald from Eden Prairie, MN and Gary Fielding of Idaho Falls, ID jumped and fought 11 tarpon boating 2 on the first of the 2 days of their fishing trip. They also boated 2 jack crevalles. Ron has fished Rio Colorado Lodge for 19 years coming twice a year, once in May and again in September. Gary met him here and they have been returning together since that meeting. After a couple of weeks of high winds and seas preventing off shore fishing, Ron showed up to break the slow spell. Ron boated a monster 200 pound plus tarpon. Last year we broke our record 3 times and if we could have weighed this one, it might have been another record breaker. Photos are on our Facebook site, so check them out. April and early May have been most unusual for us. we are having an el nino this year and we were forecast to have normal rain, but in fact, it has been very hot and dry with most showers in the night. We have experienced conditions none of the locals can remember from past years. Two of the river outlets to the sea, Agua Dulce and Samai Lagoon have both totally closed off to the sea. The main river mouth has a new built up sand bar that is closing about 80 %. This is causing all of the migrating tarpon coming in to go up river through that narrow inlet. Sometimes you can hit them with your rod tip!! They have not been as expected this time of the year, but turned on for Ron and Gary. We still have space available this month and June. There are some amazing intl. air prices to Costa Rica right now, so come on down and wet a hook. The bite is back on!!

Steven King and Rory Rehbeck visited for a few days. Their luck with boating a tarpon wasn't very good. They were able to jump a couple, but not able to get them to the boat. Similar results were happening with other boats around. Tarpon there, just not hungry! They were however very lucky boating a nice red snapper coming in at over 8 lbs. and several calva of really decent size. It is late in the season for Calva, but what a delight for the dinner table. I have not received fishing reports for April and other dates in May, but there are some that hopefully will be posted, fish are being caught. Come see us soon.
