Copal Tree Lodge, Belize is a fly fisher’s paradise, perched above the Rio Grande River and just nine minutes upstream from the Caribbean Sea. You can cast for Tarpon and Snook on the river and in the mangroves, fish the flats for Permit, or when the weather allows, head out to the white sand beaches of the Sapodilla Cayes for Bonefish. The majority of the fishing takes place in protected marine reserves and national parks. As well as this, a long list of additional, non fisher activities are here to choose from.Book well in advance >

Other species, such as Bonefish can be caught in the areas surrounding the outer reef islands which are approximately an hour away. Bonefish on the outer cayes range between two and three pounds, but occasionally a four or five pounder can be found. The rivers of the region offer Snook, large Jacks and Tarpon which can range anywhere from 10 to 100 lbs. Tarpon can also be found on the flats year round.
