Fishing the Panama Canal is truly an experience of a lifetime!
At Panama Canal Fishing, our objective is to make your fishing experience in the Canal an exhilarating and educational one while catching fish.
Our staff of captains and English speaking fishing guides are eager to share their local experience and come well equipped to provide clients with a world class Canal fishing adventure – custom fit for all experience levels.
Fish in total comfort from our fully equipped Hurricane Fun Decks 201, 226 REF and center console open angler fishing boats.
From beginners to professional’s anglers and Fly fishermen, we have identified dozens of areas throughout the canal to fit any expectations. Want a relaxing session? We have handpicked places for you. Want a challenging day? We certainly have you covered – so bring your best!
Besides fishing the Canal, we also offer a broad range of fishing destinations. One of the more requested destinations is the Bayano River in Eastern Panama where Tarpon (catch and release) Tarpon and Snook are the primary targets. The Bayano River is a tidal-influenced river, so timing is crucial for great outcomes.
Another highly requested fishing trip is a One-day deep sea-fishing trip on the Pacific Ocean. Yellow Fin Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Sailfish, Amber Jack, and Rooster Fish are the likeliest catch during these trips.
We have a large array of boats to choose from depending on the size of your party. No matter if you are a party of one or a team of avid fishermen or even if you´re throwing a Bachelor or Bachelorette party, we are fully equipped to handle all requests.
It would be our pleasure to make your trip to Panama a well-rounded success. We look forward to fish with you!
