Campeche Mexico Tarpon Trip Planned

Campeche Tarpon and The Caddis Fly Angling Shop’s very own Barrett Christiansen will be leading a small group of anglers on a Tarpon fly fishing trip to Campeche Mexico.

Located on the Western Yucatan, the quaint historic city of Campeche is virtually an unknown destination in today’s world of global angling. This region features more than 80 mile of mangrove coast, hundreds of inlet creeks, and numerous channels, making it the most prolific baby tarpon fishery in Mexico, if not the world. Offering skilled and kind hearted guides, a wonderfully quaint town with Mayan and Spanish history, and flats-style sight fishing for high numbers of feisty tarpon in the 5-30 pound class, Campeche is bound to become a staple for avid saltwater anglers.

Each day anglers depart their hotel early to meet their guides, board the pangas and venture out into the vast and varied waters of the Los Petenes biosphere preserve. Typical days will have anglers seeing hundreds of tarpon that range in size from 5 to 30 pounds with opportunities to cast to 20 or more. Depending on wind and tide conditions, anglers will either fish out on the open flats, along the edges of the mangroves, or in the creeks. Light breakfasts are served at the hotel and ample lunches are served on the boat. Guests enjoy evening meals (not included) at various restaurants in the charming historical city.

    Hey Chris, Did the Campeche trip happen? I’m going back in February and wondered how yours went. I love your blogs. We need to fish somewhere together. Aloha from Maui…I can only take so much sunshine, then it’s back to the computer. Happy New Year!
