Trout Fishing in Kenya

Rutundu Lake was also enthusiastically recommended. It's an alpine lake northeast of the main peaks of Mt. Kenya that boasts large rainbow trout. This is across a plateau from Aberdare National Park, and we could have done a day trip by plane to Rutundu, but the added expense was out of our budget.Mentioned as an afterthought was that fishing the Aberdares requires the angler to watch his back. Lions are par for the course. This quaint detail might have been cause for alarm, but the mental picture of "EATEN BY LION WHILE TROUT FISHING" on my tombstone was more dare than deterrent. I had to go.

The camp itself is on the edge of a large pond chock-a-block with ibises, Egyptian geese and myriad other birds. Accommodations consist of a limited number of well-spaced wall tents on raised platforms. Appointments were comfy, consisting of mattresses on simple frame beds, soft linens, thick blankets, battery-operated lamps and full bath complete with hot water. This was not camping in any sense of the word, for which Maggie was grateful. There is no electricity, and the dining hall is lit entirely by lamps and a fire pit. Sangare is rustic yet expansive, clean and well appointed.

Trout time was close at hand, and our first stop was the Chania River, a cold, clear freestone creek that would put a tingle in any angler. A sign painted on a rock at the small parking area warned: "BEWARE OF LIONS." We took a short walk to look at a waterfall just down stream, and our guide Paul said that a popular way to fish the streams is to go from stream to stream fishing only the base of the waterfalls. I was ready to rig up right away, but Paul said we needed fishing licenses first, and so we made the trek further along to a ranger post before descending on the Upper Magura River.

Above the falls, the stream was no more than twenty feet across: not large. Here there were some small shelters -as at several other locations in the park - that can be rented for those wanting to put in a few intensive days of fishing and camping. At that altitude, the hike down the steep trail the base of the waterfall left us winded, and when we reached the bottom, it looked like I wouldn't need the hip boots after all. Nature had randomly placed rocks from which the entire pool - about 40 by 60 feet - could be reached. The water was in the low sixties and slightly brown with silt. Above, a plume of water fell a 80 feet into the pool.

Hallo. There are 2 places, one in the Aberdares the other at Mount Kenia. Depending on rain falls the chances are better or less good. At both places you need good 4x4 cars. In the Aberdares you could sleep at Fishing Lodge (nice selfcatering bandas) at Mount Kenya any of the lodges nearby.
it can be done mostly in malindi,lamu and hona bay in homa bay district
Mt Kenya and Aberdares Highlands are the most recognized places for trout fishing.Various destinations around Mt Kenya include Rutundu lake which is located northeast of the main peak of mt Kenya and
