Fishing the Lower Zambezi

The Lower Zambezi fishing experience is usually enjoyed by using a mixture of spinning, fly fishing or drift bait fishing. Drifting with tiger fillets can be very productive and anglers need to wait for the fish to pick up run with the bait a bit before setting the hook. HOWEVER, it is important to note that in line with Lower Zambezi National Park regulations, drift baiting is only possible with fillets from fish already caught and that were unable to be successfully released. Spinning is a very good means of targeting tigerfish and casting plastic lures and spinners like the Tiger Mepps and copper effzett has always yielded great results. Lures should not exceed 9cm or dive too deep. Fly fishing can also be very productive with a fast sinking lines getting flies into the structure and over the drops offs quickly. The preferred colours for flies tend to vary from season to season. Tiger fish are the dominant fish species here and have been caught up to 20lbs while there are also fantastic catches of vundu possible. Other notable species include chessa, bream and nkupe.
