Welcome to Isla Blanca! Fly fish the majestic waters just North of Cancun called Isla Blanca! The incredible fishery at Isla Blanca is an amazingly diverse environ that offers the fly angler a variety of species to pursue. The flats and mangrove-lined lagoons at Isla Blanca are home to an amazing number of Permit, baby Tarpon, Snook and some Bonefish. This fact makes Isla Blanca one of the world's best destinations to achieve the highly acclaimed "Grand Slam" - Permit, Bonefish, baby Tarpon and Snook all in one trip and, possibly, in one single day! From topwater "blow-up" grabs from baby Tarpon to the "visual overload" of sight fishing to cruising Permit on the flats, your memories at Isla Blanca will be as numerous as the as the environs you will fish. FISH ON!!!
Isla Blanca is an amazingly diverse fishery with gin-clear sand / turtle grass flats, backcountry lagoons, and mangrove-lined islands, channels, and bays. This amazing habitat is home to Tarpon, Bonefish, Snook, Barracuda, and incredible numbers of Permit. With all of these species available, it makes this fishery the ultimate destination to pursue the highly acclaimed "Grand Slam" or even "Super Slam"!
Isla Blanca is vast, providing the angler numerous miles of flats, lagoons, and channels to fish. This is one of the Yucatan's most under-rated fisheries and we are proud to service you with the best guides and boats in the region. The prime months to fish Isla Blanca are April through November.
At Isla Blanca, spacious 18 foot pangas are utilized with an extensive front casting deck. All fishing is conducted out of these stealthy, stable, and comfortable fishing platforms. With hundreds of square miles to fish, these powerful, fast pangas are able to extend to the far reaches of this amazing fishery. Each panga is equipped with rod holders and two padded bench seats for your comfort.
Most anglers prefer to fish 8 or 9 weight rods at Isla Blanca. On calm days, a 8 weight provides great sport for these flats species. When weather conditions and/or size of fish dictate, 9 weight rods are the order of the day. The wonderful part of fly fishing at Isla Blanca is that all of the fishing is conducted with floating lines. The fish cruise or "fin" on flats as shallow as one foot deep! This shallow water pursuit demands lightweight flies and accurate presentations. The excitement of making the cast, watching a Permit waking behind your fly, and seeing the "grab" is a visual experience that will etch angling memories of a lifetime!
