Month: August 2017

MID-WEEK FISHING REPORT: SEPTEMBER 09 – 11 (2 ½ DAYS)

THE MATUPIRI PRIVATE FISHERY IS NOW OPEN.

Dry-Zone S.West fisheries are being opened for this season following the water level cycle of the Amazon basin. Water levels are a bit high this week but are dropping fast. Our first groups of savvy anglers arrived last week and obtained a healthy average of 327 landed peacock bass per angler in the week. New group arriving last Saturday has already landed over 160 peacock bass per boat at the headwaters (120 miles from the mouth) where water levels are approaching optimal levels. Reported best working lures are jump-minnow, yozuri and wood choppers and jigs. Other species caught include, piranhas, bicudas and jacundas. The Floating Suites are positioned in Dry-Zone S.West with perfect weather conditions for the rest of the week (see below forecast for Borba). Dry-Zone S.East is now closed and Dry-Zones N.East and N.West are not yet open.



Dry-zone S.West RIVERS: MATUPIRI, IGAPO ACU (see map at the top). Water levels on the Madeira River, the drainage of Matupiri and Igapo Acu, are descending at a good pace, Madeira river is already at a very low historic level (see graphic water level below). This fact, together with an excellent weather forecast for the rest of the week, indicates that peacock bass fishing conditions will be improving by the day, and excellent fishing areas in these fishery will start to yield as they do every season. See weather forecast for Borba below)

Water level chart for the Madeira River where the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line represents last year´s extremely low levels, and the red line historical extreme water levels.  

Weather forecast for Borba
 
The diagram below depicts the rainfall probability for three months. The orange zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 45% that the rainfall will be below the historical mean. Therefore, there is a chance, that the dry water cycle develops earlier in the coming months in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East).

MID-WEEK FISHING REPORT: AUGUST 19

MARMELOS RIVER IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE SEASON

After enjoying a great season our private fishery at the Marmelos river is now closed for fishing. Although conditions continues to be great, we are standing by our sustainability policy in order to preserve this outstanding fishery for the seasons to come. The yields with last closure group continued to be outstanding with the most 2 angler-boats, landing 80-100 peacock bass per day with many trophies. This fishery´s yield throughout the 5 operative weeks has been remarkable, with several trophies above the 20lbs, demonstrating yet once more, the benefits of our conservation community based programs thru out our 9 exclusive peacock bass fisheries. The Floating Suites are departing now Dry-Zone S.East towards Dry Zone S.West. A second train of Floating Suites is also arriving to this zone from the North.

Dry-zone S.East RIVERS: MARMELOS (see map at the top). Closed for peacock bass fishing.

Water levels on the Madeira River, the drainage of Matupiri and Igapo Acu, are descending at a good pace ,and are already at a very low historic level (see graphic water level below). This fact, together with an excellent weather forecast for the rest of the week, indicates that peacock bass fishing conditions at the headwaters of the Matupiri should be excellent for next week´s arriving anglers . See weather forecast for Borba below)

Dry - zone S. East RIVERS: MARMELOS (see map at the top). Open for peacock bass fishing. Water levels are stable (see diagrams below). The Madeira basin continues to drain which will impact on this fishery in the coming weeks. We are continuously monitoring levels to determine when to move to Dry Zone S.West. Weather forecast simply perfect for the rest of the week. Fishing conditions for peacock bass continue to be ideal. Marmelo´s graphic water levels are as follows:

CPTEC / INPE Rainfall forecast for this quarter The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for three months. The pale orange zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 45% that the rainfall will be below the historical mean.

All other Regions( see map above) have high water levels and are not yet open for this 2017 – 2018 season. This illustrates de importance of mobility within these 4 distinct Dry Zone areas. All other Regions graphic water levels are as follows:
