Fly Fishing on Mount Kenya
There are many great fishing experiences in East Africa, from the giant Nile Perch in Lake Victoria, to the powerful bill fish in the Indian Ocean to Tiger fish in the Rufiji River. However, when you talk of the equator, trout fishing doesn’t seem to belong in the same sentence. Yet, despite being less than a degree from the center of the Earth’s circumference, the glacial catchment of this extinct volcano delivers a constant flow of cool water in which both Brown and Rainbows thrive. The Ragati river was originally stocked with Rainbow trout in the 1930’s and they have changed considerably over time. They call them the Ragati Reds. They have also carried out regular stocking for the past 2 years and it is quickly becoming one of the best Trout fishing destinations in East Africa. Over 8km of pristine and wild river to fish! We are also excited with the completion of their 4-bedroom log cabin in the forest, that is a stone’s throw away from the river. An idyllic place to spend a few days.
