Mid-week, anglers will move from Secure Lodge southeast to Pluma Lodge. This involves a 20-minute charter flight to the Oromomo Indian Community air strip, a quick repack of gear into awaiting boats, and about a 40 minute skiff ride to the Indian village. From there you will transfer gear into Suzuki 4X4 trucks for the jungle trek to Pluma Lodge. This will be another 40 minute ride through the virgin jungle environment.
As anglers travel upstream to the lodge the terrain changes from Serengeti-like verenza to the slightly steeper pitch of foothills. The ride seems to fly by as the surrounding jungle offers magnificent sights and sounds. However, "you ain't seen nothin' yet," as the two primary fisheries for Pluma actually converge just upstream of the massive home pool, making this a perfectly placed lodge.
Pluma's floor plan is nearly identical to that of her sister lodge, Secure, which includes four guest bungalows and a main dining building. Pluma Lodge is situated on a high bank overlooking a 200-yard pool where one can sit on the porch after a full fishing day, sip a Caipirinha and watch dorado decimate bait schools.
Anglers can expect four overnights here with three full days of fishing the three water systems near the camp. At week's end, the flight back to Santa Cruz is approximatly 1 1/2 hours.
Have a look at the brother lodge, Secure Lodge.
