The fishing

Central Belize, where Belize River Lodge is located, is a year-round fishery offering both saltwater fishing and river fishing – you can get into tarpon, permit, bonefish, snook, snapper, jacks, barracuda and grouper.
Belize’s bonefish tend to be smaller than other countries (the majority being around the 3lb mark), but what they lack in size they make up for in their abundance.
Tarpon from 5 to 80 lbs are found year-round along the mangrove cayes, along the flats and in the rivers. The Belize coast is known worldwide for its permit fishing and the residents here range from 5 to over 30lbs. Prime time is between April and September.
Fishing is from 23′ fibreglass pangas with a licensed guide. All guides are Belizeans experienced in saltwater fly-fishing and spin-casting.

The facilities

Belize River Lodge sits on the banks of the Belize Olde River amongst palm, coconut, mahogany, logwood & mango trees, in a genuine jungle setting. Accommodating up to 16 people, it comprises the Guest House (a two-story mahogany building containing four rooms), The Cottage (set up for two groups of two or a family of four) and The Bungalow, which also has two rooms. All rooms are air-conditioned and decorated in a traditional Belizean style. The main lodge houses the kitchen, office, Mags’ gift shop, Mike’s fishing closet, the dining room, lounge area, screened-in porch & self-service bar.
