Matoya offers the following types of fishing methods (depending on guests’ requirements, fishing conditions, and the time of the year):
- Fly-fishing, spinning, trolling and drift baiting for tigerfish.
- Fly-fishing, spinning and worm fishing (we supply the worms) for bream.
At Matoya, we follow a strict catch-and-release policy to preserve the precious fish resources of the pristine Upper Zambezi River and Barotse flood plains.
Guests are allowed to remove their fish from the water to be weighed and photographed provided the fish are handled carefully, under the supervision of our guides.
Guests are welcome to bring their own fishing tackle, although you may hire fishing tackle (suitable for trolling spinning and drift baiting) from the Lodge. We recommend that fly fishermen bring their own fishing tackle.
