Brazil: Kendjam Lodge Yellow Dog Hosted Trip

January 22, 2019

Join Yellow Dog’s Program Director, Kyle Kolodzieski on a hosted trip to Brazil’s Kenjam Lodge – one of the most fascinating destinations that we work with in the world of fly fishing due to the remote location, cultural experience and clear water fishing for a diverse lineup of exotic jungle gamefish.

Kendjam is located in one of the most hidden areas of Brazilian Amazon – the Mekragnoti Indigenous Territory.  This is a clear water fishery known for spectacular sight fishing opportunities for an impressive variety of species including peacock bass, payara, pacu, and wolfish.  Most fishing is pursued on foot and the various fishing beats are accessed with the use of locally built boats that move anglers from one spot to another.  The wading is very comfortable and safe on the granite base and clear water environment.  Aside  from the incredible dry fly and sight fishing for a large variety of species, what makes this trip unique and truly special are the Kendjam hosts, the Kayapo tribe – an indigenous community living in the 5 million hectare of pure virgin Amazon forest.

The lodge itself is located on a sandy beach overlooking a beautiful pool of the Iriri River and accommodates (8) guests per week with (4) double occupancy African style wall tents each with private bathrooms, hot water, electricity, comfortable beds, furnished with rugs, dressers, night stands and everything else you may need.  Kendjam serves exceptional food, has a full bar, and a staff that works hard to ensure that you have a comfortable stay.
