I plan to do some fly fishing in Lake Cocibolca, Lake Nicaragua if I am correct. I am reading that you need license to fish fresh water in Nicaragua. I am unable to find a link in English that tells how and where to get a license and if this is something that can be done in advance or in country. I would like to catch a tarpon on the fly wading. Any information would be great. Any help on what to bring to fish with would also be great.

This past April, a friend and I went to Nicaragua to fish for tarpon. "Fish" is the operative term. "Catch" did not enter into the equation. Be careful when you go.

 

All that said, we went to a fishing lodge, fished from a boat, and had two guides with us at all times. We fished three two mile-long stretches of two different rivers over the course of four days. These places were several miles apart by river. Each time we moved to a new area, our guides first stopped at the shoreside town and bought what we took to be local fishing licenses.

 

I don't know if you plan is to do this unescorted, but you have some research to do. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the heads up. I do not want to use a guide. I would like to wade in the lake as first choice. My second choice would be to go out with a local fisherman. I hate to pay for a guide. I use them in the States as needed. In Nicaragua I will be fishing but not intense. I am not sure if Hemmingway would have hired a guide? I do know that George Burns would not have wanted to pay him. I have friends that fly fish from a kayak. I do not think this would be a good choice for me. I will try to clarify the license issue in country. Here in North Carolina the rivers are often county lines. I wonder if you were changing Nicaraguan counties for lack of proper term as the reason for what appeared to be purchase of multiple license. We met a local in Parita and he took us out for gas and a few beers. We had a great time and spent less than $100.00 to fish 5 days. Caught lots of fish snook being the largest. We gave him the fish and he took us to a local place that had the best fish I think I have every had.

 

Thanks Ed

Thanks I made a post on TripAdvisor. I would gladly pay $20.00 a day for a guide. I just do not like paying what would be several months salary to a local person to fishing for 4-4 hours. In my thinking that would be like paying $5000 here in the States to go out if you get what I am saying.

Thanks Ed
