MID-WEEK FISHING REPORT: NOV. 25 – 27, 2017 (2 ½ DAYS)

MOBILITY + PRIVATE WATERS = GREAT FISHING !

20 anglers arrived last Saturday to three of our Floating - Suites camps, and fished at the Xeruini, Jufaris and Kabori private fisheries. The overall yield exceeded the 1.000 landed peacock bass in 2 1/2 days with several trophies over the 17lbs mark, one 19 lbs and two 20 lbs. Water levels descended in all three fisheries and are reaching their optimum levels, no significant rain episodes were reported and forecasts for the rest of the week show that they will be enjoying excellent fishing conditions. We have a mix of baitcasters and fly-fishermen. Camp reports that best working lures are helice, joao pepino, choppers, and poppers for our fly-fishermen. Lots of intense surface action.  Other species caught include, piranhas, bicudas, peixe cachorro, trairas.

  Dry-Zone S.East 
Water levels are high and closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year. Plus, the maximum support capacity of 1mile per angler was reached with a  total of 48 anglers
 Dry-Zone S.West 
Water levels same as above. Plus, the maximum support capacity of 1 mile per angler was reached with a  total of 86 anglers Dry-Zone N.West
Water levels keep descending and are expected to reach their optimum levels in the coming days. Headwaters of the Jufaris and Xeruini are improving their yields by the day. No significant rain episodes are expected for the rest of the week.
Dry-Zone N.East
Water levels keep dropping rapidly, presenting spots with excellent fishing conditions, we have started fishing at the Kabori with excellent results. Forecasts are excellent also.
he above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for the next three months. The light green zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35% that the rainfall will be above the historical mean. Therefore, the dry water cycle is expected to develop almost normal in the coming months in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East)

Outstanding yields last week at our Kabori and Omero private fisheries with respectively 1893 and 934 Peacock bass landed by 18 anglers in both Floating Suits with an outstanding 6% between 10-18 lbs. for the Omero anglers. Our two operations with 15 anglers in the large private fishery Jufaris did reasonably well despite a bit high water levels , but now dropping. Arriving anglers last weekend enjoyed excellent fishing conditions with a promising start with many a few anglers landing over 60 peacock bass in 2 ½ days. Our final days at the Omero lakes brings closure to a notable season in this quaint private fishery. Blasting numbers and a wide variety of species challenged visiting anglers without respite. Homongous pirarucus over 100 lbs also played their part in the active week as well as Cará-açú, Surubim, Piranha, Jacundá , Bicuda, Cachorra, Jatuarana e Pirapitinga, Aruanã.    

 Dry-Zone S.East  Water levels are high, closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year.  Dry-Zone S.West  Water levels are rising but still very operative, as a contingency for unexpected water level variations in the North.   Dry-Zone N.West  Water levels are a bit high but very fishable, the Branco basin water cycle is a bit delayed but forecast is better. Headwaters of the Jufaris are picking up. Some rain episodes expected towards the end of the week. Dry-Zone N.East   Water levels keep dropping rapidly, presenting spots with excellent fishing conditions as the Omero which is excellent and having produced notable yields, the Itapará and the Kabori are forecasted to reach excellent conditions in the next week.
The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for the next three months. The light green zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35% that the rainfall will be above the historical mean. Therefore, the dry water cycle is expected to develop almost normal in the coming months in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East)
