RAIN RUNOFF ATTRACTING FISH TO RIVER MOUTHS
July 1, 2005, Eric Weissman, Explore Fly Fishing, Huatulco, Mexico Fishing Report:
The rainy season is in place along Mexico's southwest coast and the Huatulco sportfishing area. Daily thunderstorms are starting to draw large predators inshore near river outlets and rocky points. Larger schools of dorado and sailfish are within a mile of shore, and larger predator dorado and sails, even broadbill swordfish are being caught on a daily basis. Big roosters and jacks as always a prowl the fishing beaches.
We are sending guests down to Huatulco to fish with our captains in San Agustinillo. The area is very quiet right now, the place is peaceful and the fishing is hot.
The weather is 78 to 84 degrees, with a chance of thunderstorms. Water temperatures were reported a week ago between 71- 78 degrees. The currents are heavy there and oscillate. The seas with blue water often comes on shore there so you never know. Depending on which current is in, the water temperature can go up or down several degrees.
