Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 25-27, 2014 (2 1/2 days)

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.

Two Fly-in Floating Cabins camps are operating this week, one in the Matupiri river and the other one in the Xeruini river. The 7 anglers fishing at the Xeruini have endured some heavy rain episodes, nevertheless they have landed over 450 peacocks this last weekend. Simultaneously the group fishing at the Matupiri river caught 320 peacocks, with the largest one weighing 16 lbs.

Down river from Manaus water levels at the Muhura reservation river system have been improving at a slower pace than expected. Up-river from Manaus at the Xeruini river water levels have descended 5cm during the last weekend, rainfall forecast induce us to think that this tendency will be slowed down also. El Niño makes its presence felt.

Last week´s group ended the week with a total of 1375 peacocks  among  8 anglers and the largest trophy was 17lbs.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 12-13, 2014 (2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 12-13, 2014 (2 days)

This week we are hosting an 8 anglers group at the Matupiri river. Anglers arrived Saturday afternoon and decided to rest and start fishing on Sunday, meaning that we only have data for Sunday and Monday. Notwithstanding this fact they have already landed a nice 17lbs. peacock and the fish count has passed the 250 mark.

Water levels continue to be a bit high, mainly due to the El Niño influence in the region, this has somehow delayed the descent of the waters that are now descending as expected. Our other camps are moving this week in order to be positioned in the best available waters next Saturday. Rainfall forecasts show a maximum of 4mm tomorrow in the usual tropical rain-showers, so we expect no significant episodes towards the weekend.

The largest trophy caught last week weighed 18lbs and the total final count for last week´s groups was a significant 3.490 peacocks for the three camps.

This week our Fly-in Floating-Cabins are located at the Muhura reservation in the Matupiri and the Tupana rivers and we are also breaking waters at the lower Xeruini with another 8 angler group. Weather has been fine in both fisheries with some tropical showers as usual, some more serious rain is expected towards next weekend in both areas, lighter in he Carvoeiro area. Please check enclosed forecast diagrams.

Water levels  are a bit high, mainly due to the El Niño influence in the region, this has somehow delayed the descent of the waters that are now descending as expected. Nevertheless fishing is showing good numbers, (pls. see included spreadsheet), and feedback from the anglers also shows that they are enjoying good activity and the typical aggressiveness of peacocks at the beginning of the season.

The largest trophy caught last week weighed 18lbs and the final count for last week´s groups were a significant 2.649 peacocks (12 anglers) and 1.551 (8 anglers). Enclosed pictures show a flavor of some of the great moments our guests enjoyed last week.
