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: February 21-23, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

This is our last operating week for this 2014/15 Season that has been a very good and challenging one. El Niño influence has been felt and water levels have been rather different meaning that we had to scout quite a bit to ensure that our guests enjoyed the very best available waters. Our private fisheries have been very generous, providing fantastic trophy moments for most of our guests who have shared great photos with us.

This week we are operating two camps at the lower Jufaris and Xeruini rivers. Weather has been fair all weekend and forecast shows that it will continue to be good, although some rain episodes are expected around the Barcelos area.

Anglers at the Jufaris have landed two 20 pounders and two more 17lbs peacocks during the weekend in a total of 189 landed peacocks. Meanwhile our camp at the Xeruini reports that they are hosting a jolly group of anglers that are having a great time although with only one 17lbs. trophy to show until now.

Water levels at both fisheries are excellent.

We will resume next season which we expect to start by mid-July. All our camps are returning to base camp for maintenance and refurbishment. Junior guides will be attending an intensive training program that includes basic English language focused in fishing terms.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: February 14-16, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

Weather will be excellent for the rest of the week, and forecast shown below makes us believe that next week´s anglers will be enduring some heavy rain episodes that will be beneficial for the water levels on the other hand. Water levels have been stable and still a bit low on the head-waters.

This last weekend, (2 ½ days) anglers the Upper Taperá  caught a total of 205 peacocks with the largest weighing 16lbs.. Water levels are stable and this week we are hosting a group of fly-fishermen. Last week´s fish-count for this camp was 705, the largest one weighing 18lbs.  

The Xeruini river continues to present lower water levels in the headwaters and excellent ones in the lower camp. The upper Xeruini camp had a slow start this week with 205 landed peacocks among 6 anglers. Last week 7 anglers in this same fishery caught 1005 peacocks with the largest one weighing 17lbs. Meanwhile the lower Xeruini anglers landed 417 peacocks with the largest one weighing 17lbs.

The Jufaris fishery was activated again this weekend, and presented a 349 fish-count  in the headwaters with a 17lbs trophy to show and 189 peacocks in the lower part of the river among 6 anglers. Camps reports that woodchoppers, jump pino and jigs are were the stars of the weekend.

Next week will be our last operating week for this excellent season.

 Mid-Week Fishing Report: Feb.07-09, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

This last weekend all our anglers enjoyed fair weather in our private fisheries. This week the Jufaris fishery was left to rest as scheduled. Camps are being re-stocked and staff enjoyed some free days after a very intense January.  Some interesting rainfall figures are expected in the Barcelos influence area (please see below) towards the weekend, this should have a positive impact on the lower areas of our fisheries. The Caracarai area on the other hand does not show any significant rain episodes in the coming week, making the prediction of the water levels in the headwaters, stable and in the low side.

This last weekend, (2 ½ days) anglers the Upper Taperá  caught a total of 278 peacocks with the largest weighing 18lbs.. Water levels are stable and camp reports again that jigs and mid water lures are getting the best results. Camp reports that last week one of the boats (2 anglers) caught 222 peacocks, of which 24 were trophies, 30% above 10lbs and 50% good sized.

Readers of this report must also consider the human factor in the equation leading to fishing results, fishery conditions and weather conditions are the commonly quoted factors of the fishing results equation but are not the only ones.

The Xeruini river presents lower water levels in the headwaters and perfect ones in the lower camp. Results are in line with last week´s for the headwaters , showing  344 landed peacocks with the largest one weighing 17 lbs, last week´s total count was 1.280 with the largest weighing 20 lbs. Meanwhile in the lower Xeruini though fishing conditions seem to be optimal, the group of 12 has landed 237 peacocks and no trophies to show which is inconsistent with last week´s figures. We are monitoring this group closely.

  Mid-Week Fishing Report: Jan.31-Feb.02, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

January closed with a fantastic week in our fisheries. Last week we hosted a total of 33 anglers who landed  4.729  peacocks in total with amazing trophies to show the largest of which weighed  23lbs, next one 22 lbs, both caught at the Jufaris. Some heavy rain episodes towards the end of the week implied that the water levels started rising a bit, which is good news for the coming weeks. Fair weather is expected for the rest of the week with mild and localized rain episodes. Water levels continue to be optimal at the lower parts of the rivers and stable but a bit low on the headwaters, this is starting to change and we will see the cycle reverting during February.

This last weekend, (2 ½ days) anglers at the upper Jufaris  river Fly-In Floating Cabins have landed  256 peacocks, the largest one weighing 18lbs.. Water levels are going slowly up. The upper Xeruini  group has landed 189 and they are only fly-fishing.

The Upper Taperá group of 7 has caught a total of 253 peacocks with the largest weighing 17lbs.. This group endured heavy rain episodes last weekend, which has had a beneficial effect on the water levels. Camp reports again that jigs are the main lures responsible for the big sized peacocks while mid water lures continue to yield excellent results also.

The lower Xeruini  and Jufaris groups have had a great weekend with 252 and 180 peacocks landed respectively the largest of which weighed 12 and 20 lbs respectively.

Water levels on both lower parts of the fisheries are excellent, and rainfall forecasts show that they will continue to be so in the coming weeks.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 24-26, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

Excellent weather conditions in all our fisheries last weekend. Anglers enjoyed clear days with almost no rain episodes. We expect some rain episodes in the coming days in the Barcelos influence area though.  Fishing conditions are excellent on the lower rivers and a bit low in the headwaters, rainfall forecast for the coming days make us believe that this situation will remain unchanged in the coming days. Fishing results have been very good in all fisheries, pls. check the spreadsheet

Anglers at the upper Jufaris  river Fly-In Floating Cabins have landed  two 18 lbs peacocks, one 17 lbs and fourteen over 10 lbs in a total of 393 landed peacocks, making us that they are in the good path to beat last week’s  7 peacocks above 17 lbs with the largest weighing 21 lbs. Meanwhile the upper Xeruini  4 anglers group have landed 327 peacocks the largest of which weighed 17 lbs...

The Upper Taperá group of 6 has caught a total of 384 peacocks with the largest weighing 17lbs. Water levels on this particular fishery are a bit on the low side and we are monitoring daily the tendency in order to position the camp in the best available spot. From the fishing point of view results are unaffected by this fact. Camp reports again that propellers are the main lures responsible for the big sized peacocks while mid water lures are working excellently also.

The lower Xeruini  and Jufaris groups have had a great weekend with 390 and 328 peacocks landed respectively. These fisheries last week totaled 1592 peacocks with 8 trophies of 21,20,19,18lbs to show.

Water levels on both lower parts of the fisheries are excellent, and rainfall forecasts show that they will continue to be so in the coming week although they will endure some heavy rain episodes in the next few days.
