Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 27 – 29 , 2018 (2 ½ days)

24 lbs. Trophy Peacock Bass landed at the Itapará

"Tremendous experience!! Our guide worked very hard to make our trip a success, and the camp staff made the experience wonderful. More than I expected, though I would like to have caught a 20 pounder ... " T.J. Christl - Jufaris, Jan 2018 " I just got back from my second annual trip with River Plate. Had a great time. The four guides at the Upper Jufaris were great, we had Gee Gee and his expertise at wood-chopper tuning is genius level" Emery Jakab - Jufaris, Jan 2018
Dry-Zone N.East (see map below) is fishing at its finest. Yet again last week groups with 39 anglers beat the 5.000 landed peacock bass mark. Last weekend at our Itapará private fishery, several trophies above the 17lbs benchmark were caught and released, with the (up to now) season record of 24lbs.. Simultaneously the Jufaris and Xeruini produced plenty of  graceful aruanás, massive arapaimas, and several other species supplementing the peacock bass tally and enhancing the blissful experience. Fishing conditions are good, no rain during the weekend and forecasts show no significant rain for the rest of the week in our fisheries.    

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 high,  closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year. (beige in map above) Dry-Zone N.West
Water levels are about 2.0ft. above jungle level and rising. The Negro influence is being felt in the lower sectors of the Xeruini and Jufaris, floating suites have moved upriver. No significant rain is expected in the coming days.
Dry-Zone N.East
The Branco basin is in its normal receding cycle. Fishing conditions are good in all our fisheries. Negligible rain is expected for the rest of the week (see water level sketch below)
NOTE that the green area at the North affecting the Amazon basin and our fisheries is now lighter, this makes us believe that it might have a positive influence (70%) in our fisheries, averting extreme water levels for the rest of the season.

ALL OUR ANGLERS ENJOYING GOOD WATER LEVELS

Please note that the 2 1/2 days is to promptly report last weekend results to our incoming anglers.

   
5.134 peacock bass landed last week by our 34 visiting anglers, plus an assortment of other species including massive aruanás, graceful trairas, aggressive black piranhas, etc. Fishing conditions are currently good, lots of top water action. Fly-fishermen are also unstoppable, barely resting for lunch, poppers and bright colored minnows are working hard. Forecast for the coming days shows no significant rain episodes affecting our fisheries. Although the Negro basin is rising, with the extended rain forecast in the upper Negro basin, we do not expect this to affect our fisheries in the coming weeks.

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 (70%) in our fisheries, averting extreme low water levels as we had last season.

PRIVATE FISHERIES IN DRY-ZONE N.EAST PRESENTING PERFECT FISHING CONDITIONS

Please note that the 2 1/2 days is to promptly report last weekend prevailing conditions to our incoming anglers.

  Dry-Zone N.East is presenting excellent fishing conditions in all our private fisheries. Anglers enjoyed a great weekend with solid yields as the table above shows. Worth mentioning the other species caught at the foot of the table, since some outstanding specimens of these species were joyfully landed. Last week a total of 34 anglers landed 5.104 peacock bass in our private fisheries with two trophies above the 20 lbs mark plus a wild assortment of other species. The Branco river basin is in its turning point and will probably start to rise shortly. The Negro basin has been affected by more rain and is rising already. Rainfall forecast for the coming weeks is above average and might accelerate the water cycle.
