Pluma Lodge is located within a National Park and Indigenous Territory where the Amazon Jungle meets the Andes Mountains. These clear running rivers winding through jungle and mountains afford you the ability to wade and sight-cast to golden dorado. This jungle environment remains in a virgin state and is arguably one of the most pristine natural expressions in the world. Based from the comforts of the Pluma Lodge, you have access to three diverse rivers: the Pluma, Itirizama, and lower Sécure Rivers. The water types vary from deep pools to rugged, terraced pocket water.
The Pluma River is a moderately-sized clear freestone river with incredibly beautiful jungle topography. This fascinating fly fishery offers varying types of waters and tributaries divided into various beats. The system holds four species: dorado, pirapitinga, yatorana, and catfish. Fly only.
The Pluma Lodge experience is based on one jungle lodge built entirely from sustainable hardwood. There are two smaller headwater out-camp options. The main Pluma Lodge features four cabins and sleeps eight anglers. Each cabin has spring beds, private bathroom with hot water, and electric light.
As a general rule, 7 to 9 weight rods rigged with tropical grade floating/sinking lines. Wet wading is the standard. A complete list of gear will be sent upon trip confirmation. Frontiers can provide expert advice on finding the right gear for your trip.
Pluma Lodge is best accessed from Miami, Florida, via Aero Boliviano. Guests will fly into Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Included are 7 nights /6 days of fishing with two overnights at a 4 star hotel. You’ll take a charter flight from Santa Cruz to the lodge and return. The lodge generator and battery system offer 110/220 power. It is necessary to bring a converter for your electrical devices. 99% of the fishing is done by wet wading or fishing from the banks of the rivers. Temps; 65º F to 95º F.
