Fly Fishing

Catch and Release

Native fish contribute to nutrient recycling and help maintain natural ecosystem processes when they live out their entire lifecycle, from spawning to death, in the aquatic system.

Catch and release fishing improves native fish populations by allowing more fish to remain and reproduce in the ecosystem.

Releasing all native fish caught while in the Sian Kaan Biosphere reserve will ensure that enjoyment of this recreation opportunity will last for generations to come.

Our guides and captains have been fishing Boca Paila for generations. In addition to everything you need for a fantastic day on the water, we are experts at finding the best spots on any given day.

The Fish



The best time to catch a permit is in Spring and Summer. They can also be found in December, January and February.



Bonefishing is excellent almost year round, but best in May, June and July when you can expect to catch the biggest fish.



The migratory tarpon arrive in April and fishing can be excellent for this species in the months of May and June. However, catching a tarpon is always a challenge. Baby tarpons can be hooked in October and November.



Snook will lay up under the roots ready to ambush passing prey. They are found in schools lying over soft mud.
