Oahu Hawaii Bass Fishing
Experience an adventure like none other in Hawaii!
Fisherman of all ages and skill are invited by to cruise up to Wahiawa, located in central Oahu, Hawaii, for the ONLY freshwater fishing
expedition offered on Oahu. In this region, you will find the 400-acre irrigation reservoir commonly known as "Lake Wilson". Anglers
will enjoy the relaxed lake atmosphere as they hunt and search for a variety of over seventeen different species of fish.
Lake Wilson has been stocked with over seventeen different species of fish. The most popular and tough-fighting of them all, the
Peacock Bass or Tucanare was introduced in 1957 from South America. Known for its distinctive tail spot, it's considered by many anglers as
the most hard fighting freshwater fish in the world! Hawaii and South Florida are the only places you'll find the peacock bass in the United
The only native freshwater fish is the O'opu. Found in mountain streams, it was a highly prized food fish by ancient Hawaiians.
Other freshwater sport fish have been introduced over the years... Large Mouth Bass, Small Mouth Bass, Bluegill, Channel Catfish,
Snakehead (Pungi), Oscar, and Tilapia.
Many unwanted aquariums have been dumped into streams and lakes in Hawaii. Red Devil & Paku are considered a pest by some
anglers, and a great sport fish by others.
Good or bad... many tropical aquarium fish are now well established in lakes and streams.

Is Fishing In Hawaii Seasonal?: If there was a "prime time" for catching Peacock Bass, then it would be during the warmer months. But in
Hawaii, it's warm all year round right? Actually April through the end of October seem to be the months with the most consisitent catch rate.
Temperatures during the summer and fall are usually in the low to mid-eighties (ocasionally hiting the 90's) with LOTS of humidity, and
October and November end up as the hotest months of the year. Unlike the Large Mouth Bass, the Peacock Bass seem to love the warmer
temperatures; so the warmer the weather, the livelier the Peacock Bass.
Half Day & Full Day Bass Fishing Trips include: all bait and tackle. Tackle includes spinning, bait casters or fly tackle. Please inform your
guide if you would prefer to use your own gear. On Full Day Trips, lunch will not be provided. We WILL provide ice and a cooler if you wish to
bring along your own food and beverages. Or, if you prefer to "dine-out", there are two restaurants right on the lake where you can have lunch.
December through the end of March have seen some really great catches, but it's pretty unpredictable. You can hook every fish in the lake
one day, and wonder where they swam off to the next.
We get LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of rain during the winter and spring months. Not to mention thunder, lightning and winds up to
50mph...so it's not really a good idea to go fishing with your very own personal lightning rod!! Also during the rainy seasons, visibility in the
lake can become extremely poor.
We suggest the best time to successfully fish Lake Wilson is between April and October. But if you enjoy wild weather and a challenge,
our guides are willing to brave the storm! For a true fisherman, any day is a good day to fish!!
