Peacock Bass and Payara Expedition - Colombiatop
Experience the best fishing in the Colombian Amazon basin!
"Asiwere' means Big Peacock bass in Sikuani, yet peacock bass are but a small part of what the fishing at Mapiri Lodge has to offer. Fish for monster peacock bass, payara on topwater, 20 pound pacu on flies, disproportionally large matrinxa’s, gilded and red tail catfish over 100 pounds, giant piraiba and tambaqui pushing 80 pounds.
It's great when you have several of these species in one place, but to have all these species, in these sizes and abundance is nothing short of spectacular.
