Snook Mafia has the only and best Snook fishing guides in Puerto Vallarta, with more than 25 years of experience and knowledge in different fishing equipment such as Spinning, Bait Casting, and Fly Fishing. The fishing takes place in a 16 ft. aluminum boat, able to take you into the shallow areas of the river. The fishing sessions last between 5 and 6 hours depending on the conditions.
Early in the morning it is done inland, and mid-morning in the river´s mouth and points around it. When the levels of the river are low the fishing is done with 4×4 vehicles, looking for the Snook in pits and certain points well known by our guides. The fishing season in the river begins in November, December and lasts until January, which is perfect for fishing in aluminum boats. In February, depending on the river levels the fishing of Snook is done in 4×4 vehicles going down to some areas walking and seeking for recognized spots from our guides.
Although our main species is the Snook, we also catch Snapper, Jacks, Spanish Mackerel, Bonitos, Grouper, and some other local species. February, March, April and May are excellent months for fishing in the river´s mouth and expeditions upstream in search for Snooks in the pools remaining in the low levels when the river descend. Fishing in can be done in different modalities, either with spinning, bait casting, or fly fishing equipment. We are the only company in Puerto Vallarta that offers professional fly fishing equipment.
