Loc: alaska
I will be in Hopkins from Dec 15-24, 2011. I'm a fishing guide from Alaska, and this will be my first trip to Belize. I am staying at a client's house in Hopkins Village on the beach.

1. I am looking for recommendations for fly fishing guides

2. Any other activities that are must do's in the area?

3. Is there any fly fishing I will be able to do without a guide? Where and what? If not, how far do I have to drive to find fishing I can do on my own?

Thanks for any info you can provide!

Hi Mark,
There is lots to do from Hopkins. You can rent a canoe or Kayak (or maybe your client has one to use) and head for the mouth of the Sittee River for Snook and juvenile Tarpon. Wade the shoreloine of the sea early morning and catch Barracuda on the prowl. You should at least make it to the reef for some bones and permit. Send me an email at vacation_belize@yahoo.com and I'll provide some names and numbers for some great flyfishing guides in Hopkins. Lincoln Westby is one of the best.

Thanks so much for the info! I already had Lincoln's name written down from another forum, so a second reccomendation is proof that he's awesome. Anyways, I'll email you for more info. Thanks!

Crocs yes, sharks less. Last time I was in Hopkins (March/April?) I crossed paths with a 10-12 foot croc just inside the mouth of the river.
I've yet to see any sharks in the Sittee River.

Crocs and a Kayak in the same place does not sound fun at all!! Hope it is worth it.
