The area is an archipelago of 48 small islands forming a natural barrier protecting miles of hard, clear, clean flats and lagoons which are without a question, some of the finest, most exciting waters we have ever seen. All these flats are easily fished by wading miles of pristine banks and shallows as numerous schools of bonefish pout from eel grass, creating numerous stalk and cast scenarios, each with its own story. Anglers will have no trouble hooking good numbers of sizzling bonefish that run 4 to 8 pounds. Double digit bonefish are common place on these flats. There’s the odd tarpon here and there and monster barracuda prowling the lagoon. African pompano, mackerel and several varieties of snapper are found near the points and drop offs.
Los Roques has been appointed a National Park, thus no new buildings can be constructed on the islands. Long-line fishermen have been forbidden and other kinds of fishing have been restricted or regulated. As a result, the numbers of fish there have increased steadily, while other types of game fish have emerged into these protected waters – game fish like big tarpon as big as 80 and even 100 pounds. It is a beautiful place with amazing beaches, fabulous fishing, and expert captains and guides.
