This is the last week in December that we are operating, next two weeks will be used to perform the programmed mid-season maintenance of our equipment and holiday recess of our operational staff. Fair weather has been a constant during the last weekend in our camps and water levels continued to improve. Forecast for the coming days for Caracarai and Barcelos in the influence area of our operating private fisheries induce us to believe that January will present almost perfect fishing conditions to our visiting anglers.
Last week anglers at the upper Taperá landed a notable 40lbs. pirarara (redtail), while anglers at the Jufari had a 20 lbs trophy peacock to show. Total fish count for last week was 2.245 peacocks among 33 anglers. Other species caught included trairas, dogfish, aruana, jacunda, bicudas and piranhas with the typical piranha barbecue included.
This week we have two Fly-In Floating Cabins camps operating at the Jufaris and the Xeruini rivers. In the last 2 ½ days they already have 1 – 18lbs, 1 – 19 lbs. and 1 – 20lbs trophies to show in a total of 401 landed peacocks among 14 anglers. Forecast for the rest of the week is excellent and camp reports anglers are really enjoying the experience and the challenge.
