This activity was popular in the 1960’s and early 1970’s at Chobe in the Northern part of Murchison Falls N.P. Unfortunately due to insecurity in Northern Uganda, this activity is no longer feasible in Murchison Falls. However the lower part of The River near Paraa has revived fishing and the biggest catches have been realized by tourists. Other areas where sport fishing can take place include; L. Victoria (Ssesse Islands and Bulago islands) and L. Albert.
Popular fish that anglers can catch include; the Nile Perch, Tilapia and Mud fish.
Fishing trips can be organized to take place on the lake river river banks, while other fishing trips take place on the water bodies on motor boats or canoes. Fishing trips can take place half a day 0900 to 13hrs or full day 0900 to 1630 hours.
