An hour and a half into the lodge charter flight over uninterrupted jungle and rivers that look "good enough," and one can finally see the line where the Amazon merges with the Andean hardwoods. Secure Lodge is close now and the excitement begins to build.
Fishing guides, the lodge host and the entire village will turn out for your arrival at the grass landing strip on the outskirts of the Uswea Indian village. Luggage will be offloaded into extra large dugout canoes with 15-hp motors for the 15-minute run to the home base, Secure Lodge.
Perched high above the river, Secure Lodge overlooks a productive home pool where anglers can get their gear, lines and rods sorted out and their first taste of casting to golden dorado in Bolivia. It is easy to see why the lodge was placed here. Between home pool and the water above lies an ominous looking rapid that is no match for the migrating dorado but would be an adventure by boat. Clearly this is a perfect location separating the upper from the lower river, both of which will be fished during your stay. Anglers spend the first four nights in Seure Lodge fishing three full days on both the upper and lower beats. The lodge has an outcamp upstream and guests may rotate one night at the outcamp which consists of large safari style wall tent with comfortable ammenities to include solar showers and lavatory. This is a great place the fish the upper stretches of Secure river, with great dorado and pacu sight casting opportunities. On the fourth day, a quick repack, skiff ride to the village, a 20-minute charter flight and a jungle trek in Suzuki 4X4 trucks brings you to the second lodge of the week known as Pluma Lodge.
Have a look at the brother lodge, Pluma Lodge.
