Golden dorado are a fish of contrasts; pretty yet powerful, aggressive but spooky, brutal yet fussy at the same time. Perhaps it is this complexity that makes them so alluring.


Based out of the comforts of the main Pluma Lodge and the chance of doing headwaters out-camps, anglers have access to three different rivers, each different and unique: the Pluma River, Itirizama River, and the lower Sécure River. This broad variety of waters and pools allow groups to fish fresh water every day, and rarely, if ever, repeat the same fishing beat. The water types very from deep pools to rugged terraced pocket water.

The upper Pluma and Itirizama Headwaters Camps are a real paradise, located in the pristine headwaters of these two amazing mountain rivers. The camp operations are designed to offer entirely new sections of river each day. There are two different and established camp locations on the upper Pluma River (both comfortable African-style wall tent cabins), and two similar camp locations in upper Itirizama Rivier (one established wall tent cabin and the other a mobile camp). All camp locations offer chemical tent toilets, bag showers and a gazebo to be used as a living room.

Electric Power will be available from 6:00 am to 10:00 am and from 5:00 pm to 12:00 am. The lodge has laundry service available at no additional cost.

I’ve been lucky enough experienced some of the world’s best fly fishing and Pluma Lodge ranks right up there with the best.
