Inland lake and rivers fishing 1dayRiver Fishing in Madu Ganga

Surrounded by a thick jungle of mangroves and clear waters, Madu Ganga is one of the most prolific rivers in Sri Lanka. It is located in the southern coast, 80 kilometres from Colombo and 55 kilometres from Galle, Madu Ganga is regarded as Sri Lanka's second largest wetland consisting of 915 hectares and 25 islands. The largest island is Ma Duwa and it shelters around 500 families while the smallest is the Sata Paha Doopatha - “The Five-cent Island” that resembles a five-cent coin.

These unspoilt surroundings boast a healthy stock of Barramundi and other freshwater species such as Mangrove Jack and Bull-Eyed Mackerel. Occasionally, where the salinity levels of inland lakes increase, smaller Travilly and Barracudas can be hooked on also.

Your expedition will start from Balapitiya, you can select either a morning or an evening session. Our expert fishing guides will advice you the best timing depending on the weather and the month.

Ideal time for fishing in Madu Ganga:

  • Morning session – from 6.30am to 10.00am

  • Evening session – from 2.30pm to 6.00pm

Madu Ganga is the venue for Ceylon Sea Anglers Club annual Fishing competition which generally takes place in September / October.
