On the Caribbean coast of Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula has become one of the most enjoyable saltwater fly
This is in part largely because of the work of the Mexico government and the United Nations that has setup the
Sian Ka'an biosphere.
The biosphere contains 1.3 million acres of tropical rainforest, savanagh, mangove swamps, flats,
keys, springs and a significant part of the second largest barrier reef in the world.
The biosphere regulations restrict commercial angling, and many of the lodges have a catch and release policy,
thus ensuring that the biosphere will continue to improve.
The diversity of fish at the Yucatan Peninsula is impressive, with the most common three being, bonefish, tarpon, and permit. Tarpon are found in the quieter deeper mangrove lagoons, permit and bonefish tend to be found on the flats. Other fish that can be taken on fly include snook, barracuda, snapper, jacks and small sharks.
When to Go
February till July is considered the best season to visit the Yucatan Peninsula for fishing. Spawning migrations increase the number permit and tarpon, making forays into the flats and bays on their travels, which are making their way up the coast in these months.
