Mid-Week Fishing Report: Oct. 05 – 07, 2019 (2 ½ days)

CHALLENGING WEATHER CONDITIONS IN OUR FISHERIES

 

Week end´s tally (2 ½ days):

Note: this 2 1/2 days report is to rush last weekend’s conditions to our incoming anglers.
Matupiri fishery in Dry-Zone S. West -:   Last Saturday we received the Rizzo group of 7 anglers in our Floating cabins fishing the mid Matupiri.  They endured some rain episodes but had a good start with 286 landed peacock bass, but with no trophies.  They will have to brave some further rain episodes on Wednesday (see Borba forecast below). Water levels are still a bit high and stabilized but the most important factor is the sun warmth impact on water temperature directly related to fish activity, which should normalize by Thursday. Last week the Franceschini anglers landed a 21 pounder and a 19 pounder within a nice mixed tally.   Roçado fishery in Dry-Zone N. West -: Anglers have also been enduring some heavy rain episodes that have stabilized the dropping tendency of this fishery, nonetheless last week´s group have landed several trophies, in their own words: " Just returned from the Roçado river in Brazil with my brother Elliot Weston. We caught some lunkers (largest was 21lbs), and saw larger ones waking in the lagoons and swimming along the sandbars. It wouldn´t surprise me if this river produced a 30lber, but you won´t land as many smaller fish. We caught two of the largest ones with jigs, but the rest on woodchoppers. The 21lber hit in the f1st hour on 1st day on a pink woodchopper (also used to catch my26lber last year). An 18lb hit the jig at a river point, and was the toughest peacock I have caught to date - then another hit the jig at the side of the boat which is always exciting. What was interesting, was the color variety of the large fish - even though they are in the same river with each other." Art Weston Last Saturday we received the Lyle group of 7 at the Roçado with several fly fishing anglers in the group that have had their yields severely affected by the significant rain storms, and the lack of sun.  Water levels have stabilized and are expected to resume their dropping tendency once the storms passes (pls. see Japura forecast below). Note: this fishery is under the strict single hook sportmanship policy.  

Today´s Average Water Levels:

in Dry-Zone S. and N. West

  Matupiri river in Dry-Zone S.West and Roçado private fishery in Dry-Zone N.West

Guess work

Water levels keep dropping slowly in our fisheries in the Dry-Zone S.West. The Matupiri river has stabilized and is still a bit high, it is expected regain the dropping tendency after the rain episodes of this week. Considering the weather forecast fishing conditions are expected to remain good and improve in the coming days. Water levels in Dry-Zone N.West at our Roçado private fishery are a bit high and have stabilized, several heavy rain episodes in the last days and forecasts imply that they will have little sunshine and water temperature will not rise until the sun shines again, expected for next Friday, this has a direct link with the fish activity and willingness to take the lures.
