Fly Fishing Puerto Rico

The tropical climate, enticing culture, and close proximity to the United States make Puerto Rico an appealing destination for the saltwater angler. Under the radar for many years, Puerto Rico is slowly staking a claim as the up-and-coming location for super legitimate tarpon action and opportunities to chase permit on the flats. Two distinctly different fisheries, abundant tarpon are found near the mangrove mazes inshore, while pancake permit flats are ideal for finding tailing fish. With two productive fisheries so close, anglers can fish optimal tides for each species and experience the best of both worlds. 

Based out of the thriving and picturesque town of Boquerón, the area is famous for great restaurants, fresh Cabo Rojo seafood, and nightlife. Because Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, American visitors do not need a passport, can use USD, and can avoid the headaches of international customs processes. Whether you’re looking for a week-long tarpon and permit trip or a quick weekend escape to satisfy the saltwater bug, Puerto Rico offers a flexible fishing experience that allows you to take in the culture of Puerto Rico while targeting the species of your choosing.
