Listed below are the Mid-Week Amazon Fishing Reports. 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.

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.

23 lbs trophy was caught and released last weekend at the Matupiri river, which is showing a notable yield this season. Last week´s  catch included 3 – 18lbs peacocks, 2 weighing  17lbs and 105 above the 8lbs., all in a total of 1.611 peacocks among  7 savvy anglers. Also the host reports that they had fun catching other species, piranhas, bicudas, trairas, etc.  Water levels at the Matupiri are now on the low side and descending, we are monitoring this excellent fishery daily and will probably move our fly-in floating cabins in the coming weeks.

The Xeriuini had also a very good weekend with 17 peacocks above the 8lbs mark, the largest weighing 16lbs. Water levels are descending and are a trifle above the jungle level, this fishery also yielded some beautiful aruanás.  Meanwhile the Itapará river was opened for this season and although water levels are a bit on the high side the first 3 anglers there caught 60 pacocks in the weekend.  Rainfall  forecasts for the coming days shows us that we can expect normal tropical showers with no significant volume though some more rain is expected for next weekend.  Water levels in the area are expected to continue their descent tendency.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: November 01-03, 2014 (2 1/2 days)

Season is developing as expected and private fisheries are yielding excellent results.  Last week our guest anglers in our Fly-in Floating Cabins camps landed 3.438 peacocks with  8 impressive trophies above 17lbs., see pictures below.

This week our anglers had an excellent start. They are fishing the Matupiri river, the Xeruini river and the Homero lakes. Last weekend all camps have enjoyed fair weather with insignificant rain. Forecast for the coming days show fair weather with moderate showers, check the graphs below and the expected rainfall in mm.

Water levels  are descending quickly at the Matupiri and the Homero lakes, the Xeruini is getting better by the day. We are constantly working on the logistics to have our camps positioned for the coming weeks in November in the very best available waters.

Last weekend seven anglers at the Matupiri have landed 438 peacocks with the largest one weighing 18 lbs., The Homero fishery yielded 524 peacocks  with the largest weighing 14 lbs, plus they caught (and released) a very notable “tambaqui” of 22lbs. The lower Xeruini camp is hosting a private group of 4 anglers with a reported yield of 134 peacocks.

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.
