I fished with these guys on 7/14/2016. Rich, the owner, picked me up at the hotel right on time, and we drove leisurely to Gamboa. Along the way, Rich provided a commentary of Panama--a little about its history, the Presidents and culture. He's a very personable guy, and is a pleasure to talk to. We even drove right by the...

Alberado our guide was knowledgable and friendly. Had great conversation with him. Both him and the captain helped me as a beginner catch fish. Equipment was in good shape, and they were able to put us on fish all day.

Rich Cahill was very accommodating to outfit us with a great guide Danny Pierson and experienced Captain. Boat and equipment were good. We caught lots of peacock bass of all sizes. Had a good lunch and refreshment. We heard many good fishing stories.

Many thanks for working so hard to get us on some fish in tough conditions! The team at Panama Canal Fishing went above and beyond to make our day special even though the fishing was very slow....they worked extra hard, and a little overtime, to make sure we both caught several fish. In addition, the wildlife viewing was awesome. All... More

During our week stay in Panama city we just had to get out on the canal and do some fishing. If you have never been boating in the open areas of the canal, that is an experience in and of itself. Throw in a great hand made lunch, beverages and some fishing and you have a day to remember. Our... More

We got picked up early in Panama City and shuttled to marina for a full morning of Peacock Bass fishing on Lake Gatun. Our boat ride started with a couple of detours along the isolated shores to experience two different types of monkeys. It was so much fun to have them jump in the boat and be so close. We... More
