Beer on the coast of Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere are people who go to the Presa Allende Reservoir on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende to fish. I wouldn't characterize fishing in the reservoir as particularly good or something that people would seek out to do, but I have friends who have a reel, drink beers and throw a line out. Presa Allende Reservoir is not a fisherman's destination per se but I wouldn't be surprised if there were some good fishing areas that are a little off the radar because there are so many haciendas that probably stock fish.
 
The nearest ocean from San Miguel de Allende is a day’s drive.

The presa in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere aren’t good fishing spots directly in San Miguel de Allende. You can drive to fishing places hours away. They have something called the “presa”, which is reservoir and a pretty good sized body of water, but there’s no fishing there. I think it’s not the cleanest place- maybe it’s run off from everywhere so I wouldn’t fish in there.
 
There are no rivers or natural streams that are big enough for fishing here, because we’re in the high desert. There’s the Rio Laja, but I don’t think there’s any fish in there. To get to the ocean from San Miguel de Allende is a long way- it’s at least 5-6 hours to the closest beach.
