LAKE AGUAMILPA MEXICO
MEXICO BASS FISHING
Lake Aguamilpa Bassin 'til your arms hurt
In the early 1990's, construction of Lake Aguamilpa began in this beautiful location within the Sierra Madre mountain ranges. During the period of 1990 to 1994, 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.
Located in the state of Nayarit (20 miles northeast of Tepic), Lake Aguamilpa is a manmade basin developed on Mexico’s largest river, Río Grande de Santiago. It is approximately 70 miles long and located on the rugged side of the Sierra Madre mountains at an elevation from 2,200 to 4,600 feet above sea level. Opened to the public as a bass fishing lake in 1994 and has since gained a considerable reputation as one of Mexico’s rich source of quality bass fish. It is saturated with Florida-strain largemouth bass that weigh between 3 to 10 pounds and anglers average 75 to 100 bass per day. Our season runs September thru June offer outstanding basin action so it is best to visit the lake during this time of the year. Located on a hillside overlooking the lake is Coras Lodge which provides exceptional service to anglers from all over the world.
Lake Aguamilpa is also home to the Cora 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 Cora Indians bring their hand-made items, such as jewelry, rugs, and clothing to sell at a central location on this lake.
