Dear Fellow Bassmaster:
We are a family owned bass fishing lodge named Marina
Del Rey located at the waters edge near the dam on
Lake Oviachic. Our family has owned the business since 1968, operating bass boat rentals (which include
guides), a restaurant, lodging and providing parking
spaces for boat launching in addition to RV hook-ups for
our guest at Marina Del Rey.

HOW IS BASS FISHING AT LAKE OVIACHIC:
The heavy restocking of the lake in the past
years and several record spawns the past few
years will ensure that we will have exceptional large mouth bass
fishing here at Lake Oviachic.
Each year the average
size of bass has increased, with bass in the 6 to 8
pound range very common. This year we
anticipate numerous catches in the 8 to 10 pound range.
While the size of our largest bass are not as large as
those found at Lake Baccarac and a few of the other
lakes, you will find that the number of fish which you
will catch here at Obregon will far exceed the average
catches at the other bass lakes in Mexico. It is not
uncommon for a single boat with two fishermen to catch
in excess of 50 bass daily. Lake Oviachic is about 25
miles long and is one of the largest lakes in Mexico.
With virtually hundreds of coves providing cover for
bass, you will find that fishing here is very uncrowded.
HOW TO GET TO LAKE OVIACHIC:
There are several
travel arrangements which you can use for your trip to
Lake Oviachic. The distance if you elect to drive is
approximately 575 miles from Phoenix to the lake. You
will drive from Phoenix through Tucson, through Nogales,
through Hermosillo, through Guaymas, and then to
Esperanza (a town a few miles north of Ciudad Obregon).
You will leave the main road at Esperanza and head north
to the lake. The roads, both in the United States and in
Mexico, are four-lane for the entire trip except for
passing through Nogales and Hermosillo, This enables
most drivers to
make the trip from Phoenix in about 10 hours A map
providing specific instructions on how to drive
directly to the lake will
be provided upon request. However, should your schedule
not permit you to take the time to drive from Arizona, You should
contact your travel agency or airline travelling to Ciudad Obregon.
