Go fishing with a local fisherman in a lake on a traditional catamaran - Fishing Trips in Sri Lanka - Fishing in Yala - Yala Fishing - Sri Lanka Fishing Trips

Its time to enjoy some inland fishing on the waters of a man made lake (also known as an irrigation tank) from a catamaran (a traditional fishing boat). The scenic lake with its hoards of aquatic birds is an enjoyable way of enjoying the lake while fishing with an experienced fisherman of the area. Some of the fish found here include variety of carp, tilapia etc. It’s a great way to meet the local fishing community while supporting the responsible tourism initiative of the company where a part of the proceeds goes back to the village folk. It’s a two-hour program in the evening, with sun slowly setting in and dusk close at hand. Take back with you the catch of the evening and maybe have fresh BBQ fish for dinner.
