Mexico's Lake Aguamilpa: Bassin 'til your arms hurt

Lake Aguamilpa Bass are growing at a rate of 1 1/2 to 2 pounds per year Mexican Biologists have stated. Therefore, this is an indication that the sizes will continue to increase. Already, a Lake Aguamilpa record has been set at a whopping 14 lbs. 6 oz.


Mexico bass fishing anglers, including fly fishing enthusiasts come to Lake Aguamilpa to enjoy the non-stop action seldom found in the United States. Some of the lures most commonly used on this lake are crankbaits, spinnerbaits, scroungers and jerkbaits, and numerous fishing flies. 

Worms, lizzards, and Senco-type plastics are also popular for a very successful bass fishing trip to Lake Aguamilpa Mexico.


The Mexico bass fishing season runs year round on Lake Aguamilpa. There is very little fluctuation in the lake level because it is used for hydroelectric power only and not for irrigation.  Therefore, there is always a good time to go bass fishing in Mexico on this beautiful lake.


Lake Aguamilpa is also home to the Coras Indians, who use boat taxis and barges as the only means to transport building supplies, food, and personal items to their communities. No roads access to their villages. On weekends, the Coras Indians bring their hand-made items, such as jewelry, rugs, and clothing to sell at a central location on this lake.


This Mexico bass fishing lake deserves the number-one rating for the amount of bass caught south of the border.  Most anglers will bring in over 100 bass per day. However, there have been reports of as many as 400 per boat with two anglers fishing in one day.  The sizes have been ranging from 3 to 9 pounds. The lake record is expected to be broken in the 2019-2020 season since the sizes have been increasing every year.


In the early 1990's, construction of Lake Aguamilpa began in this beautiful location within the Sierra Madre mountain ranges. During the period of 1994 to 1997, no Mexico bass fishing was allowed on the lake; so the Florida Strain Largemouth bass that were in holding ponds had some time to grow without being disturbed.


Lake Aguamilpa is located at an elevation from 2,200 to 4,600 feet above sea level; and the lake contains beautiful numerous deep-water points, as well as four water falls. The abundance of quality bass that are swimming in this water is the drawing point for Mexico bass fishing anglers.
