Fishing Reports

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.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: February 22-24, 2014 (2 1/2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report: February 22-24, 2014 (2 1/2 days)

Last weekend our guests have endured some heavy rain episodes, forecast at the Carvoeiro area and the Barcelos area indicate that it will get somewhat better and next weekend it will pour again.

Water levels in the lower Xeruini and Jufaris  have gone up and are beyond jungle level, not so in the headwaters where they are still low, though the rain forecast makes us think that this will be changing shortly.

Last week we hosted a group of 20 anglers coming from Russia who lived a completely new experience, not only from the environmental standpoint but also on the fishing techniques, nevertheless they were able to catch an impressive 21 lbs. trophy. Our guides were up to the challenge and successfully communicated with these anglers in the international fishing language.

This is our last partial fishing report for this season. Looking back we see that our private fisheries have produced a great season and anglers have enjoyed landing notable trophies, confirming that the preservation implied in the private fishery concept really works. Worth mentioning in this final report is the socio-economic benefits that the sport fishing activity brings to the river communities and the implied sustainability of this fantastic natural eco-system. River Plate Anglers is committed to expanding our operative model to protect other areas from the growing aggressive depredation of the Amazon basin, benefitting local communities, and allowing us to offer new challenging territories to our seasoned anglers for next season.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: Feb.15-17, 2013 (2 1/2 days)

Last weekend almost no rain episodes  in our private fisheries. Our anglers  enjoyed excellent conditions to fish. We are expecting though some heavy rain in the Carvoeiro area for next weekend, check forecast below.

Last week´s anglers totaled more than 150 landed peacocks above the 8 pound mark with 12% over the 15 lbs. mark.

We have decided to end our Season next week, forecasts made us think that it was too risky to operate in March this season and we decided to avoid any potential  rescheduling, always a hassle to all anglers.

Last weekend we operated 4 camps with 34 anglers, total landed peacocks for the last weekend was 972, 46 of which exceeded the 10lbs mark and the largest one weighed 21 lbs caught in the  Lower Jufaris fishery.
