El Rio Negro Fishing Lodge

El Rio Negro Fishing Lodge strives to personalize your stay in Panama and build your dream fishing experience. Whether you want to fish the world-renowned waters off Coiba National Preserve or catch big fish for keeps in the untouched waters off of Cebaco Island, they do it all. As well as the fishing, they provide an amazing main lodge in Playa Reina.

Captain Lauren Livingston specializes in multi-day fishing adventures taking on anything from Tuna and Wahoo to Almaco Jacks, Roosterfish, and whatever else you come across. These trips include comfortable accommodation in the Rio Negro lodge. Capt. Lauren also offers single-day charters which are perfect for anglers who only have a day free.

Fish aboard a 36’ Custom V-Hull center console. This hardy vessel is great for getting offshore to where the big fish lurk. She can also take you into the bays in search of monster Roosterfish. The boat is capable of carrying any size group, but Capt. Lauren limits her to 4 guests per trip to make sure each angler has the best experience possible.

The vessel features a 150-gallon livewell and custom tuna tubes - your bait will be fighting fit, however big it is. She also has Garmin electronics to get you on the fish and Shimano equipment to make sure you catch it.

El Rio Negro Fishing Lodge packages are all-inclusive. There are no meal fees, bar tabs or hidden costs. Just great fishing with professional crews and a clean bed to rest your head on at the end of the day.
