Flamingo Fishing Forecast July & August 2016
July and August will bring more consistent fishing to the northern Guanacaste area. The winds will stop blowing so we will have blue water move in closer to the beach. The green season will be in full swing but that only means afternoon showers for us. We don’t get much rain, so it is very likely that you will be able to fish all day without getting wet, but it would be wise to bring a rain jacket just in case. It will also be overcast so temperatures will be cooler during the days. Inshore fishing should improve with the cleaner, warmer water so expect to see more Roosterfish and Cubera Snapper. Offshore fishing will see more marlin showing up in July, and be really good marlin fishing in July and August. There should be plenty mahi (dorado) here as well as the always present sailfish. It is not uncommon to get 2-5 blue marlin bites per day as well as some sailfish and mahi mixed in. Cooler, calmer and consistent fishing. The summer is my favorite time of the year to fish northern Guanacaste.
