Fishing at Bolgoda Lake

" Light Tackle Heaven "


Bolgoda Lake is the ideal destination for a backwater fishing in Sri Lanka. Close to Colombo, the mangrove environs and fish species provide a unique fishing experience.

The large tidal fed estuary system of Bolgoda is just less an hour’s drive from Colombo making this an ideal fishing day trip for anglers in Colombo.

The elusive Wild Golden Barramundi, the prime target, the feisty Mangrove Jack along with many other species combine with the beautiful mangrove environs of the lake to make this a unique fishing experience.

Our 16 foot barra boats are the ideal luring and fly casting platform. With their open decks, they are suitable for 2 anglers + the guide. Powered with a 40hp Yamaha outboard engine, these boats are perfect for fishing the shallow backwater systems and get you anywhere quickly. 
We have two boats that can fish a group of 4 casting anglers.

We provide half day and full day fishing.
