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 fly fishing only lodge offers varying types of waters and tribs carved into various beats. There are four main species: dorado, pacu, yatorana, and surubi catfish.
The Pluma Lodge experience is based on one jungle lodge built entirely from sustainable hardwood. The main Pluma Lodge features six single or double-occupancy cabins for six guests per week. 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 direct Aero Boliviano flight. Guests will fly into Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

There are not enough adjectives to fully categorize this one-of-a kind destination. This is the culmination of your fly-fishing skills as you steady your nerves to cast to marauding Golden Dorado. These fish are full of nastiness and fury and will shred a 3 lb. baitfish in seconds. Add shots at large Pacu, Yatorana, and even a big Surubi catfish that will eagerly gulp a fly.
