Fly Fishing in Punta Cana

Fly Fishing in Punta Cana is another jewel in the crown of the Dominican Republic. You get to experience this beautiful Caribbean island from a different perspective. This area is known for its diverse landscape and fly fishing trips offer nothing less – you get to fish the flats, reefs, mangroves, and deep sea using this advanced technique. Blessed with amazing fishing opportunities, there’s only one thing local guides don’t know about – a low fishing season.
 

What to Catch

Let’s get right to the chase and name the main prize – Marlin! If there’s any place in the world where you should try landing a Marlin on a fly, it’s Punta Cana. Catching this heavyweight champion is not an easy task and you’ll need the assistance of an experienced crew. They’ve perfected the art of casting and don’t rely on second attempts. Marlin’s reputation for aggressiveness precedes them and you’ll understand why once you get a bite.
 
You can only catch Marlin offshore, so choose a guide with a sturdy and comfortable boat. Other possible offshore targets are Sailfish, Swordfish, and Mahi Mahi. All Billfish have to be released, so make sure to take a few photos of your trophy before you let it go.
 
If you imagined your day on the water as more relaxing, look for guides who run inshore fishing trips. You’ll get to target Bonefish and Tarpon year round and you also have high chances of landing Ladyfish, Snapper,  and Pompano.
 

Need to Know

Fly fishing is an advanced fishing technique but it’s not mandatory for you to be experienced. If you’re planning to dedicate the whole fishing trip just to this technique, we don’t recommend bringing the kids along – it’s usually too advanced and they’re likely to get bored. 
 
Make sure to get in touch with your fishing guide before the trip and check if he provides fly fishing equipment (and if it’s included in the price). Some captains rely on you having your own equipment, so better safe than sorry.
 
Fly fishing in Punta Cana is an experience that will have you hooked from the start. The advantage of this amazing area is that you can reach deep waters in just 3 miles. Everything is possible here and even a six-hour trip can be a life-changing adventure. Intriguing?
