Im taking a trip to Comendero in late February.

The State Department has just issued a level 4 DO Not Travel warning to this area due to crime. They have very limited explanation or information regarding why.


Everyone I talk with says its safe no issues. I called the consulate in Mazatlan, who just refereed me to the state department website.

Anyone know where I can get better information on the area? I have talked to the outfitter, but I want another opinion.

Also on another note.......I cant find any reports of incidents to Americans in this area.

If its all cartel on cartel, then I am not worried.

My grandad and grandmother live in the state of Chihuahua and grew up there. Even their small town has been shot up by cartels at times. While most of the incidents are cartel on cartel, many people die in the crossfire. Last year there was a shooting in town where 40 people died. Guys with 50 cals mounted to the bed of their trucks. My mom's cousin was kidnapped and held for ransom about 7 years ago even before it got real bad. Stuff happens to civilians as well. It is not all cartel on cartel.

Having said all of that, most of the time if people keep to themselves they won't have issues. A couple of years back when the Sinaloa cartel really started moving into the town my grandparents live they shut down all travel after dark. They were stopped once by a cartel vehicle and were told that would be their only warning and to stay off the roads after dark.

I just returned from El Salto yesterday, my 10th or 11th trip, and I noticed no apparent differences. Everyone has to make their own judgments, but I'd go back tomorrow if I could.

There's a guy on here named bluebonnetb who just packed up and moved down there. You might search his name and send him a pm. I pm'ed a couple of times and he always responded. Don't remember the name of the town but they had a Walmart, banks, gas, ATM's and a Yamaha dealer so must be pretty big.


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

Screw Mexico. I'm never going there again. If I want an expedition trip I'll go smallie/pike fishing in Canada, multi species in Alaska, or Amazon peacock fishing.


Advice? Wise men don't need it. Fools won't heed it.

Numbers are very good, with a lot of 4-8# fish, but not many true monsters in camp this week.
Fish are in all stages of the spawn, and we caught them on everything from Whopper Ploppers to 10XDs. Good time to work on your favorite (or least favorite) technique.

This happened Dec 30th and probably has a part to play in the warnings

No way I'd go, then....


Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery.....Today is a gift. That's why it's the present.

Nothing really very good happens at 4am on any city street
That is a time when it is best just to be sleeping.

yeah.....being gunned down on the streets in Mexico at 4 am COULD be an indication of someone not acting the safest manner and MAYBE was somewhere he should not have been.

Just fish, stay at camp, maintain a low profile and you should be fine. I've never been there, but know of people who have and they say it's great.

If something is going to go down it’s going to happen no matter how much you try to prepare for it. They are not looking to kill American fishermen if that is your biggest concern. The last thing any cartel or Mexican citizens want is to bring heat from “el otro lado”. Enjoy the trip!
