Four Fly-in Floating Cabins camps are operating this week. They are fishing the Matupiri river, the Xeruini river and the Homero lakes. Rainfall has been uneven , very light at the Homero, medium tropical showers at the Xeruini, and at the Matupiri they had some steadier rain, but the forecast for this area (Muhura reservation) looks real good for the rest of the week, please see the graph below for Borba.
Water levels are now at an optimal level at the Matupiri and the Homero lakes, the Xeruini is a trifle higher but we see a tendency to reach the optimal level soon. Nevertheless fishing results are showing us that the Xeruini yield is unaffected by this factor.
The six anglers at the Matupiri have landed 170 peacocks with the largest one weighing 14 lbs., The Homero fishery had a fantastic season start with 88 peacocks per angler in this 2 ½ days, while the lower Xeruini yielded a very healthy 590 peacocks among 15 anglers, largest one weighing 17lbs.
Last week´s total fish count was 1532 peacocks with several over 15lbs.
