Fishing is usually best October 25 - January 1. Excellent guides paddle and pole boats. You’re guided two anglers per boat. Additional boats are kept on 12-plus lakes, a short hike away. Each of the boats has a GPS SPOT device in case of an emergency the guides can have contact with the Lodge.

There are three species of peacock bass on the Agua Boa: the butterfly, spotted/temensis and azul. Like their namesake, the spot on their tail fins resembles the eyes on a peacock's tail feathers.
