Fly Fishing in Cabo San Lucas

There are two things you can say about fly fishing in Cabo San Lucas – always challenging and always fun! You’ll hardly find a better way to level-up your game. Even if you’re staying inshore and targeting a species that you’ve caught many times, landing it on a fly will make it refreshing...and harder. There’s a variety of fishing spots to visit, depending on the fish you’re after. To save more time and get right to the action, find an experienced local guide who knows just the spot.
 

Where to Go

We’ll leave the specific fishing spots for your guide to find. What we suggest choosing ahead of time is whether you want to book an inshore or offshore trip, depending on your experience. Inshore trips are perfect if you’re fly fishing for the first time – the bite is more frequent and the fish aren’t as heavy. Big game fish can be overwhelming if you’re just learning to cast.
 
If you can’t find a guide in Cabo San Lucas specifically, check San Jose Del Cabo and East Cape! Just 30 minutes away, you’ll find yourself in a less touristy place, with pristine surroundings. Thanks to the secluded Sea of Cortez, these spots have much calmer water.
 

What to Catch

Inshore trips are usually reserved for Roosterfish, which are not easily fooled. You can also go after Jack Crevalle. They may not be that big, but they sure know how to give a good fight.
 
Head out offshore and you’ll probably land a Mahi Mahi (Dorado) or two. Unlike Billfish, they can be kept and you can enjoy delicious sashimi after the trip. Skipjack Tuna is another treat that comes in a different way – in schools! Find one and you’ve struck gold! For those of you who’re after the most aggressive and heaviest fish, the main prizes are Marlin and Sailfish. 
 

Need to Know

  • Ask your guide if he provides fly fishing equipment and if it’s included in the price. Guides usually expect you to bring your own equipment.

  • Bring a quality pair of sunglasses. As fly fishing requires perfect casting, precise fish spotting is essential. 

 
Fly fishing in Cabo San Lucas has no boundaries – there’s no slow season here. The fish are fast, tough, and huge, and they can make any angler’s heart beat faster. It’s a challenge worth fighting for. Make a memory of a lifetime and get your prize on a fly!

What anglers said about Fly Fishing in Cabo San Lucas

We really enjoyed fishing but the sea was a bit rough. Cabo in May-June is changing seasons so the winds are very present. This made the sea a bit rough and for someone who gets motion sick it was a bit much. Just keep that in mind and go fishing in the morning and not in the afternoon if your fishing during these months.

Make sure you take something for sea sickness prior to going out even if you you think you have good sea legs.

Great weather and some of the fish were biting. Not sure if you would come away with a trophy as I'm not expert, but you'll come away with something to eat and show, for sure.

Big boats targeting Marlin means fishing all day for that one bite. I have much more rewarding trips on pangas, more fish and a good experience.

Captain louis and Anthony are really awesome. Caught 12 Dorado and they wouldn't quit till we caught fish. We caught 9 mahi one morning and they shut down the port and had to quit early because of wind. They offered to take us out again to get our full day finished and we we caught three more huge Dorado. They are very easy going and go to any length to get you your fish.

We had a great time heading out for 5 hours. The boat was really clean and comfortable with room to relax. We saw dolphin and a sea turtle as well as catching the tuna we were hoping to catch.

Pack a light jacket and sunscreen. The temperature was low 60's in the morning and heated up to low 80's mid day. Make sure you have a way of transporting your catch back with you. One collapsible cooler will fit about 50lbs of fish (and is still fairly manageable to transport).
