First time to Rio Colorado Lodge guest Steve Palmo and Mitch Wergills of New York, jumped 23 tarpon, boated 9 that were 120 – 180 lbs. The weather has been real nice, seas flat. We get an occasional shower at night. The river is on the rise from inland rains. Due to La Nina we anticipate at least 30% less rain than normal has been predicted, and that has been the case so far. We expect great weather and fishing for the next months!
