Month: December 2017
MID-WEEK FISHING REPORT: DEC. 30 – JAN 06, 2018 (2 ½ DAYS)
CELEBRATING THE NEW YEAR IN THE JUNGLE
Last Saturday 30th, we received in two Fly-in Floating Suites two groups totaling 14 anglers who decided to start 2018 in the quiet of the jungle, just fishing. They headed to the headwaters of the Jufaris and Xeruini rivers. They obtained good yields of up to more than 100 landed peacock bass per boat per day (see table above) but perhaps due to some heavy rain episodes only very few trophies. Rain is expected to stop today and the forecast for the rest of the week is excellent. Water levels are about 2ft below jungle level and are slowly starting to rise. The Indirei group arriving today for a short week will enjoy perfect fishing conditions.
Water levels are high, closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year.

Water levels are about 1.5ft. below jungle level and have started slowly to rise. Jufaris and Xeruini private fisheries are presenting excellent fishing conditions for the rest of the week. No significant rain episodes are expected in the coming days.

NOTE that the green area at the North affecting the Amazon basin and our fisheries is now darker, this makes us believe that it might have a positive influence (65%) in our fisheries, averting extreme low water levels as we had last season.

MID-WEEK FISHING REPORT: DEC. 02 – 05, 2017 (2 ½ DAYS)
First day 6 anglers put under their belt a 20lb , 19lb, 18lb and three 17lb
Groups arriving last Saturday are now fishing in optimal water levels at the Xeruini and Jufaris rivers. The Weeler group of 7 anglers are mostly fly fishing and had a promising start landing 534 peacock bass in just 2 1/2 days. No rain and almost perfect water levels completed a blissful picture. Camp informs us that red/yellow bucktails are making a smash. Meanwhile the Gungoll group at the Jufaris, mainly baitcasters, are also obtaining excellent yields with an average of 62 peacocks per boat per day and with trophies of 20lbs., 2 x 19 lbs, 1 x 18lbs and 3 x 17 lbs. on the first 2 1/2 days. Joao pepinos, perversas, choppers and jigs are quoted as the best working lures.
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
Water levels same as above. Plus, the maximum support capacity of 1 mile per angler was reached with a total of 86 anglersDry-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.
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.
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)
