Tiger Fishing Times

on the Lower and Upper Zambezi the months of May, June and July are best using lure and feather.

By May the river has reached its highest level over the floodplains and starts to empty into its main channel.

Mid January on the floodplains sees such species as barbs and bream, feeding and breeding.

Before the water levels drop they must make their way into the main channel

The tigerfish, and other predatory fish such as the Nembwe bream and sharp tooth catfish, feed on these "baitfish".

In June there is a mass exodus of these baitfish, moving down stream to areas of more cover and structure. This movement causes "bait balls" to be formed as they separate from the safety of the clay bank edges and move out into deeper waters.

As the water level drop from August to November, so the targeting of shallow water tigers becomes more of a reality from the confines of wooden dugout mokoro

This is truly the most natural way of fishing for tiger fish, also lending itself to great bird watching and the feeling of really being one with the river

By the end of November, the rainy season starts, and water levels start to steadily rise again, bringing with it dirty water and an end to fly fishing in the Zambezi

Mekoro Fishing Excursions

in dugout canoes with experienced paddlers

Use their knowledge of these waters to find you best fishing spots and they can get you into very rocky areas silently

For the experienced fly fisherman, the Upper-Zambezi yellowfish and Thinface can also be found amongst the rapids

Catch and release is encouraged as much as possible.
