    Fishing at Sekoma Island Lodge

    Sekoma Island Lodge is an excellent destination for the adventurous angler with the hard fighting tiger being the prize but guests also have the chance to catch large tilapia, various bream species, catfish and African pike.

    Sekoma has a fleet of eight boats which are powered by 55hp motors. Boats take a maximum of two fly fishermen or four lure anglers at one time.

    Fly fishing and lures fishing are the most popular fishing methods. The largemouth bream and tilapia species, namely the Nembwe (Olive bream), Thinface largemouth, Humpback largemouth as well as Threespot- and Redbreast tilapia take artificials readily. Tiger fish are caught mainly by fly fishing and artificial lure fishing, but in April, when the river is high and often dirty, the lodge allows for some bait fishing with circle hooks.
