Legendary, Uraima Falls Payara Camp has been rebuilt. The lodge was destroyed by fire in 2008. Uraima Falls is in Eastern Venezuela. It separates the headwaters of the Rio Paragua froom the main body of the river. It holds claim to practically all the IFGA records for payara with the all-tackle record at a monsterous 39lbs.
Fishing is in very rapid waters below the falls where baitfish school up in massive amounts being easy prey to the fang tooth payara. Fishing is out of 30 foot canoes with 2 guides per canoe.
Anglers fly into Caracus overnight, then fly into Puerto Ordaz the next day and take a boat to the lodge.
