Multi-Species, Remote Private Fly-In Waters of Rio Travessao

This rustic-style, air-conditioned lodge is “Preserved in an Indian Reservation (meaning protected indigenous waters) with no easy access due to rapids and waterfalls.  It is so very remote and secluded that we do not truly divulge its exact location.  Geographically, we can tell you that yes, it is in Brazil, and the fishery is in the Guyana Shield’s northern Amazon Highlands. It is one of our most “unique” trips offered.  This fishery offers up a bounty of species galore!  While fishing these rivers, you get the “true” feel of the indigenous Amazon.  Not only is it one of the most exciting waters to fish, you never have to worry about seeing other boats around you from other operations.  If you want adventure, off-the-chain angling, and somewhere to experience a multitude of species, Rio Travessao is the place to be.  Many of our travelers are so very amazed at the story of how many years of trials and preparations came to pass prior to being able to open the doors of an actual lodge (instead of tents).

We use fishing boats that are long and narrow that can reach to overcome wave areas. These boats are constructed of riveted, heavy-gauge aluminum with 15 hp, short-footed Suzuki motors. We use lower hp motors due to currents we may encounter., Local native Guides have great expertise in running these boats and very knowledgeable in maneuvering these waters.

NOTE: BOOK IN ADVANCE! This trip books out quickly due to only 8 anglers per week maximum capacity, and its short season.  CALL TODAY:  (800) 398-5837 to make your reservation.
