Fishing in Los Barriles

“The Barrels,” as it’s known in English, is a sleepy fishing town located on the edge of some seriously productive waters. As the river flows into the Las Palmas Bay, and out into the Sea of Cortez, this is a fine spot to wet your line. A Los Barilles fishing adventure is something you’ll never forget. Whether you’re fly fishing close to shore, or hunting big game in the deep, you’re in for a real treat!
 
Close to shore, you’ll be treated to some of Mexico’s best fly fishing action. Hit the bay and target tough-fighting creatures such as Jack Crevalle, Cubera Snapper, Sierra Mackerel, and the exotic Roosterfish. 
 
Head further afield and you could get your hands on a true monster. Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi love the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez, while Sailfish, Swordfish, and three types of Marlin can also be found. Go after ‘em all, and land yourself a tasty treat and a trophy to boast!
 
As a tourist town, Los Barriles has fishing carters catering to every kind of angler. Beginners and families can take advantage of short trips up to four hours to explore the bays, while avid anglers can spend up to a full day on the water. Most charters leave from the Palmas De Cortez hotel dock. Bring some sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses and experience fishing like never before!

Los Barriles Fishing Seasons

January

Start the year right by catching some big fish in Los Barriles! These waters are home to some of the biggest Marlin, and the captains in the area will show you how to reel ‘em in.

February

Wintertime is great for reeling in some big Striped Marlin, as well as doing some bottom fishing offshore. If you stay inshore, you’ll find Roosterfish biting.

March

This is when Marlin fishing can slow down, but staying nearshore will have you reeling in Yellowtail, Spanish Mackerel, and Amberjack. You can try to do a bit of kitesurfing as well, and see what all the fuss is about!

April

If you head out into the Gulf in April, you’ll have the chance to reel in some tasty creatures. Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Yellowtail are all biting at this time of the year, so expect to have a productive trip.

May

Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, and Mackerel are all possible targets this time of year. May marks the beginning of the tournament season in Los Barriles, so check it out for some real competition!

This is when the big game action starts to heat up! You’ll see Billfish left and right, so it’s the best time to come and break some records by heading offshore on a real adventure.

Blue, Striped, and Black Marlin are all biting in the offshore waters. For a serious challenge, join the annual Dorado tournament and compete for a big prize and tasty treat.

Offshore, big game fishing is still strong, with Black and Blue Marlin as possible targets. You’ll find Roosterfish and Wahoo are biting closer to shore, so there's no end to the fun.

With the tournament season slowly coming to an end, you’ll find that Billfish still don’t stop biting! If you stay inshore, you can take advantage of some great Roosterfish fishing, too.

Two Days on the La Joya
Richard O. fished with Los Barriles Sportfishing on November 5, 2018
Watch the wind forecast and make sure you have live bait. This boat is great for 2 people but it would be a stretch for 3+
