Fly Fishing in Dominican Republic

Fly fishing in the Dominican Republic is one of the best ways to raise your vacation to a whole new level! This type of fishing is not restricted to any particular season or terrain. Fly fishing offers the variety you have with other techniques...only it’s more challenging.
 

Where to Go

Inshore Trips

Inshore trips are perfect for those who want to take a break from the usual tourist activities but lack fishing experience. As you’ll stay close to shore, there’s no danger of getting seasick. You’ll explore the reefs, flats, and beautiful glass-like water surfaces full of fish. When it comes to your catch, Bonefish and Tarpon are year-round targets but you can also catch Ladyfish and Pompano. The crew usually lets you keep the fish, so you just need to find a good restaurant where they can be prepared for your lunch.
 

Offshore Trips

When you really want to step up your game, there’s hardly anything better than landing Marlin on a fly. Not only will your casting need to be perfect, but you’ll also need lots of strength to fight this incredible big game fish. The Dominican Republic is the place to go if you’re after Blue Marlin, but you can also target Sailfish and Mahi Mahi this way. These heavy-weight champions can resist for a long time, so it’s necessary to have an experienced crew by your side. 
 
To increase your chances of catching a Marlin, you need to know when they’re in the area: March–September is the best time for Blue Marlin, while White Marlin fishing is the best from May–June.
 

Need to Know

  • Make sure to ask your fishing guide about their fly fishing equipment policy – do you need to bring your own, rent it at the marina, or rent it from the guide directly?

  • Billfish are strictly “catch and release.”

  • You don’t need to purchase a fishing license.

 
Whether you want a trip where your reels will scream or something more laid-back, fly fishing in the Dominican Republic will be just what the doctor ordered. Don’t be scared off by this challenge, even if you don’t have the experience yet. There’s a first time for everything, right?
