Fishing Reports

Listed below are the Mid-Week Amazon Fishing Reports (only 2 1/2 days). They are rushed by e-mail to our agents every Tuesday night, in order that our weekend incoming guests may be duly informed before departure.

Please note, these are true weights … sometimes in the Amazon the 17-19 lbs4. class are considered 20 lbs. trophies…

Mid-Week Fishing Report: December 03 - 05, 2016. (2 1/2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report:  December 03 - 05, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

Last week anglers fishing in Dry-Zone N.West ended the week with 1.204  landed peacock bass, the largest of which weighed above 19lbs and the rest with a good size mix.

This weekend we are fishing only in the Jufaris private fishery where anglers in the lower part of the river had to endure heavy rain episodes while the group fishing in the upper part enjoyed perfect weather conditions. Water levels keep improving as well as the size mix of the catch. Forecasts for the rest of the week show fair tropical weather for both areas.

Best reported performing lures this week are, propellers, mid water lures and jigs. Other species caught were: aruana, traira, bicuda, jacunda, peixe-cachorro, piranha.

WATER LEVEL FORECAST – (AMAZON BASIN 4 DRY REGIONS)

 

Dry-Zone N.West  RIVERS: JUFARI, XERUINI (see map at the top). Jufari and Xeruini rivers water levels are a bit above average for this time of the season due to La Niña influence that has delayed the cycle a bit, but keep descending at a good rate, very fishable for peacock bass. Last weekend anglers endured some heavy rain episodes in the lower Jufaris, forecast shows improvements for the res of the week see forecast for Barcelos. See also water level chart for Moura below where the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line last year´s levels and the red line historical extreme water levels.

BARCELOS FORECAST

NOTE: 1 to 8 mm of rain a day, is by Amazon standards considered dry.

The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for three months. The pale green zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35% that the rainfall will be above the historical mean. Therefore there will be a very small chance, if none at all, of high waters during our Dec. to Feb. fishing in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dry-Zone N.East RIVERS: KABORI, ITAPARA (see map at the top). Mid-high levels. Water levels have descended and are still a bit high in some fisheries, nevertheless selected zones are presenting good conditions for peacock bass fishing, which is normal for this time of the season. See chart for Caracaraí below where the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line last year´s levels and the red line historical extreme water levels also check Caracarai weather forecast below.

CARACARAI FORECAST

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dry-Zone S.East  :   RIVERS: MARMELOS  (see map at the top). Is closed down for the season ( which is normal for this time of the year). Although it has started to rise, it is worth noting that this has been the 2nd lowest level in history. Please, note in  the “Rio Madeira” chart below, the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line represent last year´s levels (the second registered  lowest levels) and, the red line represents the historical lowest level. The blue line, today´s level, is between the last two lowest water levels ever! . And yet, Dry - Zone  N.East are still a bit  high  for fishing . This illustrates de importance of mobility within these 4 distinct Dry Zone areas.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Dry-Zone S.West RIVERS: MATUPIRI, IGAPO ACU (see map at the top). Closed down for the season. Water levels are too low and unacceptable for peacock bass fishing which is normal for this time of the year.

Mid-Week Fishing Report:  November 19 - 21, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

32 anglers fishing last week in Dry-Zone NWest finished the week with 2.257 landed peacocks with a good size mix, the largest trophy weighing over 21lbs. caught at the upper Jufari private fishery

This weekend anglers fishing in the lower Jufari and Xeruini rivers endured stormy weather conditions with heavy rain episodes, conditions are expected to improve throughout the week. The upper Jufari group enjoyed milder conditions and were able to land 30 peacocks per angler in this 2 ½ days fishing. Water level in the low part of the rivers is still a bit high but we believe that they should resume their descending tendency in the coming days.

Best reported performing lures this week are Perversas, propellers, and jigs. Other species caught were: traira, bicuda, jacunda, peixe-cachorro, piranha.

18 anglers fishing last week in Dry-Zone NWest finished the week with 1.866 landed peacocks with a good size mix, the largest ones weighing over 17lbs.. (Note: a glitch with our satellite communication with the camps prevented us from issuing last week´s partial report)

Last Saturday Fly-in Floating Cabins II, stationed now at the lower Itapara Dry-Zone NEast received a jolly group of 7 Dutch anglers to break waters in this private fishery this Season. With an initial 155 landed peacocks, camp host reports that they are thoroughly enjoying the whole experience. Water levels in this fishery are a bit above the mean and descending.

The two groups (15 anglers) fishing at the mid and upper Jufaris, had a  moderate start with 440 landed peacocks with a good size mix but no trophies to show up to now. Water levels are a bit high but stable, expecting to start descending in the coming days. Similar conditions and results for the group fishing at the Xeruini private fishery.

Best reported performing lures this week are Joao-Pepino, perversas, propellers, and jigs. Other species caught were: barracudas, cará, traira, bicuda, aruaná, peixe-cachorro, piranha.
