Uganda is an ideal fishing destination. With one third of the country covered by water; there is great opportunity for sport fishing. Sport fishing is carried out on Lake Victoria and Murchison Falls National Park. Nile Perch Fishing in Lake Victoria Uganda is implausible! Over 108 kg have been trapped below the falls. Apart from Nile perch, other fish you can catch include catfish of over 50kg Tilapia, Tiger fish, Ngara (Genus alestes), ferocious fighter and barbel.
Sport Fishing at Murchison Falls National Park is presently done at the foot of the falls. The fishing is either from the rocks on the bank of the river or faintly lower down stream in the pools from a boat. Access to the fishing spots is either by boat from a point further down stream or by walking down the gorge to the river from the top of the falls. It’s a steep climb back up and hence most people tend to go fishing equipped for the day to avoid climbing up in the heat of the day.
