Mag Bay Mangroves

On the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur lies a vast expanse of mangrove estuary over 130 miles in total length: Magdalena Bay or "Mag Bay" as it's called by the anglers and outdoor enthusiasts who covet this truly unique ecosystem.

The extensive mangroves of Magdalena Bay are ideal to explore with a fly rod or light tackle. The twisted mangrove roots and rich tidal currents provide habitat to both bait and game fish alike. In these waters you never know what might bite next: grouper, snapper, corvina, halibut or the much prized snook. Protected from the open Pacific by the barrier islands Isla Magdalena and Isla Santa Margarita, the bay attracts a yearly migration of California Gray Whales as well as over 100 species of birds. The sheltered waters, rolling sand dunes, and lush labyrinths of mangroves create a fishing environment unlike any other on the West Coast of North America.

My Mag Bay trips are based from the small fishing village of Puerto Adolfo Lopez Mateos. A classic coastal town reminiscent of what Cabo San Lucas was like many decades ago. Lopez Mateos is ideally situated to fish the mangroves of the bay while also allowing quick access to the Pacific Ocean via the nearby Boca de Soledad, a narrow gap in the barrier island Isla Magdalena.

 
 

We fish the mangroves in pangas skippered by local fishermen born and raised on the waters of Magdalena Bay. I've fished Mag Bay regularly for close to a decade and have developed great friendships with the captains we fish with. You can book with confidence knowing that you're fishing with an experienced team that understands what it takes to be successful with the fly or light tackle in this challenging tidal fishery.

Fish a single day or multiple days in the bay. We can schedule in a day to fish the Pacific, or to surf fish. Add on a whale watching excursion in season. I can book you into the accommodations that best suit your needs and expectations. Every trip is fully custom.
