Lake Naivasha has a maximum depth of 30m and an average depth of 6m and covers an area of 139sqkm. The lake is home to many fish including common carp, cat fish, largemouth bass, tilapia, straight fin barb, Crayfish. Lake Naivasha is a great place to do boat fishing day trip from Nairobi. Your tour operator will arrange a boat and fishing gear if you don’t have one. The boats are simple but very safe for fishing and you will be provided with a life jacket. These motor boats will move from one place to the next in search of good catch. You can book a full day or half day fishing trip from Nairobi. Packed lunch is taken while on the boat to maximize time for fishing in the lake. Be sure to come with a straw hat, some sun screen and insect repellant. I have had very good success in catching 2 feet long cat fish, a foot and a half carps and 1 foot long tilapia or bigger. The weather is subject to change on the lake in the afternoon and it becomes abit rough. So it’s advisable to arrive very early at the lake to start fishing when the lake is calm. Lake Naivasha 1 day fishing trip is an awesome escape for a day of quiet angling off a boat.

You can go on 4 or 5 day hiking and fishing safari on Mt Kenya. You will be able to catch rainbow and brown trout in the rivers within Mt Kenya national park.
