McLellan’s hosted trips to Pesca Maya

For the last several years, McLellan’s Fly Shop has hosted a saltwater flats trip to Pesca Maya—one of our favorite saltwater destinations.

Located on the Yucatan Peninsula along the northern edge of Ascension Bay, Pesca Maya is roughly two-and-a-half hours south of Cancun, at the end of a dirt road through the dense jungle of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.

Due to the sheer numbers of bonefish, permit, and baby tarpon in Ascension Bay, Pesca Maya is one of the best destinations for both novice as well as more experienced saltwater anglers. With miles and miles of hard white-sand flats, the wade fishing is absolutely spectacular, standing in shin deep water, sight casting to schools of feeding fish!
