Operation at the Matupiri river was finalized last week and the fly-in floating cabin camp is moving up river towards the Xeruini and Itapara rivers. Last week´s final count was 1.175 peacocks, the largest weighing 23 lbs, closing a splendid season for this fishery.
The Xeriuini river camp with 6 anglers endured some heavy rain last weekend, nevertheless they were very active and not only caught 119 peacocks with the largest weighing 15lbs, but also landed some beautiful aruanás, pirararas, jacundas. Anglers at this camp are reportedly having a great time. Meanwhile anglers at the Itapará river enjoyed fairer weather with more modest rain episodes but with higher water levels, making the fishing experience far more challenging and not so rewarding.
Rainfall forecast for the coming days is varied but rain episodes are expected daily with varied intensity, check forecast below for Barcelos and Caracarai. El Niño is making its presence evident, but we expect that the coming week water levels will regain their normal tendency.
CPTEC Brazil´s Climate prevision agency (http://clima1.cptec.inpe.br) accumulated rain report on the last weekend.
