     What Species Fish To Target On Lake Arenal

 "Guapote, also known as rainbow bass, is one of the primary target fish on Lake Arenal, Costa Rica.  Highly desirable for eating and for catching.  The Guapote is a great fighting fish and requires great skill to stop the initial run.  A Guapote initial run is like a saltwater Snook.  They have been caught up to 15 lbs, however the average fish will weigh upward of 3-7 lbs.  Fishing action can be slow for this species and will require some casting with your favorite lure. Fishing for Guapote by Canoe or Kayak is also a popular way to catch the famous rainbow bass."

                 How To Fish Lake Arenal From Shore

   "For non-boaters Guapote Fishing on Lake Arenal can be successful by walking the shoreline and casting parallel to the shore in early morning or late afternoon.  Since Lake Arenal is located on the equator, the days and night are almost equal in length.  There is 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of dark.  It gets daylight around 5am and very dark by 5-5:30pm in the evening.  Guapote Fishing on Lake Arenal is best at or just after daylight.  The fishing is good up until 8:30am, and then slows as they move offshore to deeper water. However, one local Guapote Fishing Guide reported catching the unofficial IGFA World Record Guapote Rainbow Bass weighing 6.5 Kilos at 2 PM in November. So you never know when a big Guapote will strike. You may have to switch to crank baits and try lures that will run 18 to 20 feet. Catching big Guapote requires a lot of dedication, persistence and luck." If you like fishing with artificial lures visit www.LuresThatCatchFish.com and go to the Rainbow Bass section.

                   Do You Need A Fishing License

   You can fish Lake Arenal from the shore in many areas and from a boat as there are several free boat ramps with access to the Lake Arenal.  We offer Kayak Fishing on Lake Arenal to our guests. We provide the latest in lures, graphite fishing rods and reels. Tackle will be similar to bass fishing tackle, except the Guapote will make a much harder run, more like the Florida Saltwater Snook. Fishing licenses are required by law, but the process of securing one is complicated and takes time.  Most people fishing Lake Arenal do not have fishing licenses and I have never seen anyone checking for one on or around the lake.  You will be able to spend the entire day on the lake and will probably not even see another boat.  Also, marinas and houses on the water are not allowed, so the Lake Arenal is very beautiful.  The rainforest growth goes all the way down to the lake front in most areas.  The Lake Arenal is approximately 33 miles long and up to 200 ft deep in areas.  The water temperature is a constant 76 degrees year round.  This is one of the cleanest lakes in the world.

          What Is The Best Fishing Tackle To Use On Lake Arenal

   Some of the local guides swear by white or red spinner baits.  Others swear by dark red floating/diving plugs.  The lures you use will depend on the type of Guapote fishing you are doing on Lake Arenal.  In the morning try jointed minnow imitations in red, green, orange and yellow. Also try some top water plugs in silver, red and gold.  Guapote will hit almost anything a large mouth bass will.  Later in the morning use lures that will dive from 5 to 8 feet as the sun rises.  Its difficult to fish deep diving plugs from shore as they will get hung up in the sunken trees or the rocks as you retrieve them to shore.  During the middle of the day when the sun is warmest try trolling 18 to 25 feet deep a hundred yards off the shore. 

   Rubber worms have never worked for fishing Lake Arenal. Many local fishermen have tried worms, jigs and spoons with no success. The shore line of Lake Arenal has lots of grass that extends out into the lake and many areas have dead tree stumps. These are usually great rubber worm fishing areas for largemouth bass, but not for the Lake Arenal Guapote Rainbow Bass. Spinner baits and crank baits have been the most successful for catching Lake Arenal Guapote.

  The best line for fishing Lake Arenal is the smallest pound test you can get by with. Anything less then 12 lb test mono may be broken when a big Guapote makes the initial run. Many local guides use 15 lb line for that reason. It takes a lot of casting to get a nice hit and the last thing you want to have your line snap because it's to light. Synthetic lines have never been to popular on the lake because of the windy conditions on the lake and the tendency of the line to tangle. The wind can reach 50 to 60 mph in certain seasons. Definitely beware of that before you set out into the middle of the lake. It usually rains in the afternoons. It's best to schedule your first trip on Lake Arenal with a local experienced fishing guide.

       Does Lake Arenal Have Any Public Ramps

   There are a couple of public ramps with free access to Lake Arenal.  One of the most popular ramps is located in the Arenal Public Park located just outside the small town of Nuevo Arenal and the other ramp is located at the dam itself.  The ramp at the dam would probably require a 4X4 vehicle, but the Arenal park ramp is paved and very easy to access. There are also many other areas where you can get access to the lake with a boat or by walking the shore. Costa Rica does have many varieties of poisonous snakes so it pays to be cautious when walking from the lake highway to the lake shoreline, especially if you are wading thru tall grass. Snakes are very rarely seen in Lake Arenal and most locals say they have never seen any snakes around the lake or the nearby creeks. Wear knee high rubber boots when you make your way to the lake through tall weeds and grass.

                           Kayak Fishing On Lake Arenal

 Kayak fishing on Lake Arenal can be a real blast. There are kayak rentals in town for approximately $10 per hour and many of the local hotels and accommodations have kayaks you can use to try your luck at fishing lake Arenal. Again you want to be aware of the high winds on the lake. The local winds usually have a certain pattern and you can find a place to launch your kayak that's out of the wind. From there are many quite coves to explore. There are several islands in the lake that has many species of local wildlife such a sloths, howler monkeys, hummingbirds, parrots, etc.

   Fish Lake Arenal with a kayak from Lake Arenal Accommodations and Kayak Fishing . You can explore the coves inaccessible to larger boats.  If you like Fishing, Canoeing or Kayaking, then this is the adventure for you.  This could be the guided fishing trip of your life.  Its a great picture taking opportunity.

                           Best Time To Fish Lake Arenal

  The best fishing for Guapote is when the lake starts rising (mid June through July) and when it's starts dropping in level (Feb-April). Fishing on Lake Arenal can be good at other times also and requires some experimenting with light conditions, water conditions, winds, seasons and temperature patterns. If you are dedicated you will eventually hook up with a nice Guapote. Some of the local fishing guides report catching Guapote all year long in areas of the lake.

 Fishing Lake Arenal Costa Rica      Lake Arenal Costa Rica Fishing Report

    "Fishing on Lake Arenal can be slow this time of year.  The fishing should improve this month with the higher water levels. Best time is early in the mornings up until 10 am or so. After that you have to troll with deep divers to connect with a Guapote. Try top water lures in the early mornings and spinner baits the rest of the morning. I've had my best success with white 1/4 ounce spinner baits with some blue colors on the head. What ever lure you use, it will take a lot of casting and a lot of persistence to hook into a big Guapote Rainbow Bass. The thrill is definitely worth the wait though as the Guapote are very hard fighters. They will test your rod, line and your skills all the way to your boat or shore.

   One reason the fishing is so poor is because of spear fishing. Although illegal, many people dive the lake and the rivers feeding the lake to spear the Guapote.  We spoke with one local in April 2011 that reported spearing over 60 large (5 to 8 lb Guapote) in less than 2 hours during the early morning hours of daylight. Unless the Government takes action the Guapote may soon disappear from Lake Arenal.

   The lake however is very beautiful and clean. I highly recommend a boat tour / fishing trip to view the lake up close.  On our last boat tour in April 2011 we saw Toucans, Howler Monkeys and many other species of local animals. We also got some great footage of Arenal Volcano from the lake. Kayaking on the lake is also becoming very popular."
