Conditions can play a role in activity, and more often than not the best fishing is prior to the rainy season as the waters are still very clear and easier for fish to see the bait, especially for fly fishing. For cast fishing, we have noticed that bright green or orange lures make for the most activity. For fly fishing, scuds, midges or buggers usually do the trick. For either, fishing rods should be collapsible and contained in a hard shell case when not in use. Your guides will pack them away for you in a safe location as not to risk poking/puncturing anything delicate.
While some outfitters practice catch and release, others will be happy to cook your catch for you and the rest of the group (decided by the trip leader – and often it is your responsibility to gut, clean and prepare the fish). There is nothing better than offering your fresh catch to the entire group as an appetizer, or in addition to the delicious food your guides have prepared.
