Lake Arenal Bass Fishing Departing From Arenal & La Fortuna

Lake Arenal, Rio Frio River, Cano Negro Lagoon and the San Juan River are the major freshwater fishing spots in Costa Rica’s Northern Volcanic region. If you’re looking for some top notch Costa Rica Bass Fishing away from the tropical coastline, heading to Lake Arenal is the way to go!

At the top of the list, bass fishing in Lake Arenal is not only a delight due to its natural beauty, but it offers the lifetime opportunity to face a fierce local bass, locally known as “Guapote”. Guapo means handsome, -ote means large, hence large handsome bass! This Central American Rainbow Bass can grow to over 12 pounds, has a mouth full of teeth and a big lump on its forehead; not sure why anyone would call it handsome! Regardless of its physical aspect, there’s one thing for sure: this Guapote Rainbow Bass can really put up a good fight. The Guapote fights twice as hard as any largemouth or smallmouth bass, so be ready to fight back! 

Costa Rica Rainbow Bass Fishing in Rio Frio, Cano Negro Lagoon and the San Juan River is prolific with Tarpon, Snook, Guapote, many of which come in monster sizes! There’s nothing you’ll miss about deep sea fishing when heading for some freshwater Costa Rica Bass Fishing inland.
