Costa Rica Tarpon Fishing
Rio Parismina & Silver King Lodges
Triple digit Tarpon are waiting at either of our two locations to test your strength and endurance. Whether you choose Silver King or Rio Parismina, you’ll have such a good time that you won’t be able to wipe that smile off your face. As the fall season winds down everyone is looking towards the hot fishing coming this Spring. Call Trek today to secure your spots.
Silver King Lodge
You will be met by a Silver King representative upon arrival into San Jose for the beginning of your Costa Rica Tarpon fishing trip, and then transferred to the Hotel Cariari for the evening. The next morning, you will be transferred to the airport for a 6:00am commercial flight to Barra Del Colorado and the Silver King Lodge. You will stow your gear, have a quick breakfast, and then head out to fish.
The tarpon fishing is done aboard 23 foot deep V hulled boats, just outside the mouth of the mighty Rio Colorado. If backwater light tackle fishing is to your taste, you can try your hand at the Guapote and Mojarra found in these waters.
The Silver King Lodge offers spacious air-conditioned cabins with ceiling fans and private baths. Recent additions of a jacuzzi, swimming pool, sauna, masseuse, and flat screen televisions with satellite in all rooms are really the crowning touches on this deluxe lodge. All your meals are served family style with plenty for everyone.
Rio Parismina Lodge
This Costa Rica Tarpon fishing adventure begins with your arrival to San Jose, Costa Rica, where you will be met by a lodge representative and transferred to the Hotel Cariari for the evening.
The next morning, you will be flown out to Rio Parismina, where lodge manager Fernando Gonzales will meet you and get you settled in. After breakfast and a quick run down of the program, you will get geared up and head right out to fish. You will return for lunch and a siesta in the midday, and then will head back out round 2:00pm to fish until dusk. You will then have time to relax around the pool with appetizers and cool drinks while dinner is being prepared.
The next two days will be full fishing days with a 5:00 am knock on your door and a tray left outside with juice and coffee. Breakfast is at 5:30 am, and then you are off to fish. First thing in the morning, you will catch live bait which is a slam dunk for these hungry tarpon. Once you get into the ocean, you will have nearby river mouths to fish for the majestic silver king. Just hook on bait, free spool it out a hundred yards, and hold on for the fight of your life!
