Belize River Lodge


About

Belize River Lodge is a first class fishing & eco-tourism destination in Central America and the Caribbean. The main Lodge rests peacefully on the banks of the Belize Olde River amidst a lush green tropical setting. Balmy breezes, rich with bird-song, drift among the private mahogany cottages where you can relax & enjoy our Belizean hospitality & our tasty Belizean-Creole-American cuisine. The Lodge is about 10 minutes from the Belize International Airport and approximately four miles from the mouth of the river & the Caribbean Sea. Because of BRL’s unique location, which is centrally located, we offer a variety of fishing locations; the Flats, mangrove channels, inside the Barrier Reef & a few rivers for many different species of fish. Sight fishing the Flats is our specialty, with variety our main attraction. Game fish species generally found in this area include PERMIT, BONEFISH, TARPON, SNOOK, Snappers, Jacks, Barracuda, Grouper, and many other species. Visual “Grand Slams” and visual “Back Country Grand Slams” occur every day. Landed Slams will depend upon your skill, the fish and luck. Comfortable skiffs, modern outboard engines, and English speaking, professional licensed guides help make this a memorable fishing vacation.

As with fishing from the main Lodge, you have a choice of your fishing day, fish early and/or fish late for Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Snook and many other species. BRL &/or LCOL ~ The Fishing Whether staying at the main Lodge or on Long Caye, we have a very healthy fishery for Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit and Snook, due to the extensive fishing areas of Central Belize (where Belize River Lodge is located), BRL is a year round fishery. Weather determines where we fish, whether flats, channels, rivers, etc, but you have the opportunity to fish for Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon and Snook year round, along with more species variety, such as jacks, snappers, ladyfish, tripletail, ‘cuda’s etc. We look at fishing as good, better and best time frames as there is no bad time to fish. Due to the extensive flats and fishery around BRL & LCOL, if you would like to fish for all species (Bonefish, Snook, Permit and Tarpon), then any month of the year is a good time to visit and fish. The only fish that departs our waters is the migratory large tarpon – they usually arrive sometime in February and depart our waters in July/August, however, all other species are resident and are fished for and landed every month of the year. The biggest factor to affect our fishing (as with anywhere) is weather. Please note that any day of the year in Belize can have rain or wind or can be sunny, calm and great fishing weather. BRL guides prefer to sight cast to fish, however, if it is rainy and overcast or windy, then the visibility on the flats can be low, and the guides will try a few different options to get you into fish.
