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: January 24-26, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

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.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 17-19, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 17-19, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

This week we are operating 5 Fly-In Floating Cabins camps. Weather has been excellent with mild showers in the lower parts of the fisheries and almost no rain in the headwaters. Forecast shows more showers to come in the lower parts of the Jufaris and Xeruini, in the Barcelos influence area and almost no rain in the headwaters areas, Caracarai influence area.

Fishing-wise and anglers at the upper Jufaris  river Fly-In Floating Cabins have landed an impressive 21 lbs trophy, two 17 lbs peacocks,  nine over 10 lbs in a total of 244 landed peacocks, making a remarkable ratio. Last week this fishery yielded  1.172 peacocks, with the largest weighing 20lbs.

Meanwhile the upper Xeruini group have landed 351 peacocks the largest of which weighed 18 lbs., one pound below last week´s  19 pounder. Water levels on the headwaters are a bit on the low side, with all the pros and cons that this fact implies, levels are stable and rainfall forecasts makes us think that we should expect a similar scenario in the coming week.

The Upper Taperá presents similar conditions to the above rivers and the 6 anglers there taking it more easy have landed 145 peacocks with the largest weighing 19 lbs, two pounds above last week´s 17 lbs trophy. Camp reports that propellers are the main lures responsible for the big sized peacocks while mid water lures are working excellently also.

The lower Xeruini has had a great start with 4 anglers landing 308 peacocks and the camp host reports that several large hits were missed, generating the natural frustration and illusion to be up to the challenge. They are working on the lures, and techniques to improve performance.

The lower Jufaris anglers started with 363 peacocks landed in the last 2 ½ days. 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.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 10-13, 2015

Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 10-13, 2015

Excellent start for the week with great fishing conditions in our private fisheries.

The upper Jufaris  river fly-in floating cabins have had some heavy rain episodes but nevertheless the 8 anglers managed to land 526 peacocks. Camp informs that lures with propellers are having the best performance.

Meanwhile the upper Xeruini had lighter rain and had a nice start with 236 landed peacocks with the largest weighing 15lbs. Host reports that propellers and jigs are the best working lures. Water levels at the Xeruini are a bit on the low side but they are increasing about 2 inches daily. Rainfall forecasts in the influence area appearing below makes us believe that this healthy tendency will continue in the coming week.

The Taperá has had a great weekend with 317 landed peacocks, 23 above 10 lbs. and the largest weighing 16lbs. Noteworthy was the catch of an apaiari (aka. Oscar). Anglers in this camp are mainly fly-fishermen, and traditional Amazonian patterns are working just fine. Water levels are increasing and rainfall forecast is similar to the Xeruini.

Next week the lower Jufaris and Xeruini  river camps will start operating too, and hosts report that fishing conditions are excellent. Pls. check below the rainfall forecasts for Barcelos and Caracarai that show a healthy tendency for the coming week regarding what to expect on the water levels for the coming weeks.

Notwithstanding this fact thereare two groups fishing this week, there is a small group of 4 savvy anglers that are fishing the lower Jufaris fishery and there is another group of 8 anglers fishing the upper Taperá.

Water levels in the Jufaris are optimal and these 4 anglers have landed in the last weekend (2 ½ days) 203 peacocks, meanwhile in the upper Taperá the 8 anglers have landed 371 peacocks with the largest weighing 17lbs. and 52 of them over 8 lbs. showing a fantastic ratio per angler. Weather has been fair with short rain episodes and forecast for the coming days shows moderate tropical showers.

Water levels in all our active private fisheries are excellent and we expect to show excellent results in our next mid-week fishing report.

Last week was the last week of the first half of the Peacock Bass season.  Yields  were  fantastic, making us believe that the fishing forecast for our private fisheries in the coming January is very positive.

We are now in our Mid-Season Recess and our operational staff has started to perform the scheduled maintenance protocols in our Fly-In Floating Cabins camps. We have successfully tested some new recipes that will be incorporated to the picnic lunch menu incorporating tasty local products.
