FishingThe huge number of flats at Los Roques offers more wading and stalking opportunities than almost any other saltwater fishing location. Some are vast, some are just small ‘pancakes’. And some are idyllic beach flats where the bonefish are constantly on the look out for crustacean and baitfish. Fishing in Los Roques is a dream of the ultimate sporting adventure, wading in transparent azure and turquoise waters lapping against virgin white coral sands.
The stalking of bonefish by wading the flats is such a feature of Los Roques that fishermen are accompanied by both a guide and a boatman. While you are fishing, the boatman will move his ‘panga’ to the other end of the flats to meet you there, and to save the sometimes long walk back, against the wind.
Bonefish average 3-5lbs, with double figure catches not infrequent. Stalking them with one of our knowledgeable guides generates alternating panics of anxiety followed by deliria of excitement.

Los Roques Archipelago,which lies 80 miles off Venezuela’s mainland, along the Caribbean Sea, is considered to be among the best bonefishing places in the World.
The Archipelago consists of forty-eight keys or islands; when overlooked from airplane, they look like a string of pearls against the azure blue of the Caribbean.
Los Roques has been appointed as a National Park, thus no new building can be constructed on the islands; besides that, long-line fishermen have been forbidden and others kinds of fishing have been restricted or regulated. As a result, the amount of fish dwelling there was increased steadily, while other types of game fish have emerged into these protected waters, like big Tarpons weighing 80 lbs. and even up to 100 lbs. which can be sight cast either by wading or from the boat, big Permits, Jacks and enormous Snooks weighing around 20 lbs. have been hooked and released too.
