For *Trophy Peacock Bass *
Mataven is such a special place for fishing for Peacock Bass. 25 to 35 pounders live in these waters, and to land one of these beauties takes patience, skill and some effort. We think the effort is worth it! Mataven is a 6-day fishing extravaganza. Six full days of fishing, camping on a remote sandy beach with nothing but the sounds of the river and nature to surround you. Bring your best rods and we will take care of the rest! From Bogota to Puerto Inirida and back.

We have an early morning flight from Bogota to Puerto Inirdia. The flight takes just over an hour.
Arriving in Puerto Inirida, we will immediately feel the tropical heat and head to a local hotel to change from mountainous Bogota clothing into our lightweight clothes to start our adventure.
We will then begin a 2- hour boat journey on the Inirida River until we reach the Mataven watershed, where we will transfer to native indian guided dugout canoes appropriate for reaching hidden lagoons and shallow rich fishing spots. . You will be astounded by the beauty and wild character of these indigenous-pristined wild territories as we move upstream for another 2 hours to our base camp.
We’ll use the rest of the day to rig our fishing gear, take a delicius river swim and explore around the base camp.

Let the fishing begin!
