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 Week of 11/30/2020 Over the last week, the East Cape has been VERY windy. Before the wind, there was some dorado around the buoys and there were some Sierra and roosters around the marina that are always fun on light rods. As an added bonus we were able to find some jacks in front of hotel Palmas de Cortez as well which is always a treat. A perfect start to a day of fly fishing in BajaMag Bay had good wahoo fishing recently with some scattered dorado & there were also a few small tuna mixed in as well. The marlin is there but we're moving south at a pretty good rate as the water-cooled off. There are still a few pockets of them around if you can find them as they are on the move, but if you are patient you will have a few shots at some good marlin. The mangroves were fishing really well with snapper, Corvina, golden trevally, and some snook. There also was the occasional halibut. We are still taking trips through the winter so if anyone has any questions please reach out. 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.
