Baja Mexico - Cabo San Lucas, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
On the East Cape you need to pick and choose your days. Early mornings are best. In Cabo you want to be patient. The fish are moving around a lot. Once you find them then you can dial in a little more and be successful. If you do not see fish in one spot go back and double check it later. You will be surprised.

Fishing conditions: Jeff deBrown Owner/Guide 1-888-287-4076 Air temp Low: 82 High: 95 Week of August 1st, 2018 HOT!!  The weather is hot. Been pretty nice with no storms. One overcast day last week but overall lots of sun and heat. Bring sunscreen. * Beach - it's been a little difficult. There are a few fish in and around on the beach, but not many. The ones that are here are big though. My buddy Solis was here for 5 days to hit the beach. He got one nice fish over the 5 days, but it was a beauty. Overall, from the beach, it's slow but not undoable if you put in the time. *Offshore - it's been ok. We have had decent fishing for tuna and dorado mostly to the south. There was a nice school of tuna out with the porpoise but a commercial tuna boat came and wrapped them up. There are a lot of marlins both blue and striped but they are scattered so you have to go looking. No real concentration in a certain spot. You have a chance just about anywhere. We have been seeing a few more roosters from the boat in the deeper water over the numbers on the beach. It might be due to water temps as the water inshore is pretty warm at the moment.  But this is just a theory... Defiantly a few more from the boats than the beach so i'd focus on the deeper water. We do have some dates available so if anyone is interested in coming down please call.   Tight lines, Jeff

Cabo San Lucas, Magdalena Bay Description

East cape - windy windy windy. It was windy all week and strong enough to keep anglers off the water for most of the week. The wind is forecast to ramp up again and everyone is curious to see if the wind pushed the roosters that were here out or not. Just waiting on a fishable window to find out and will update soon. Cabo - the fishing inshore and along the beach has been pretty good. I had a guest get ...

Techniques & Tips

Inshore - This time of year we see a lot of action early in the mornings as well as the low light hours in the evenings. People tend to over look these time periods. If you want some great action get up and on the water early or fish a little later in the day as those "magic" hours can be great. Offshore - have a few different rods ready from 8wt. to 12/14wt as you never know what you might encounter as far as species and size of fish. It never fails you will be running to a destination and you run into feeding fish on your way. You need to be ready for anything before you leave the dock.

7-Day Forecast

We will continue to have good fishing on the Pacific side with decent early morning action in the East Cape depending on the wind.
