WEEKEND'S TALLY
Note: This 2 ½ days report is to rush last weekend's conditions to our incoming anglers.
Curiucu River in Dry Season-Zone N. East: The Francisco group of 8 anglers landed 300 fish over the weekend, including a 17 pounder. Last week's group finished with 1070 caught fish, with two 19 pounders and a 21 pounder (not shown in pictures yet). Over 10% of the landed fish included Aruana, Arapaima, Sardinata, Tambaqui and Apapa. Two fishermen landed non-stop Aruana with dry flies. Water levels in this area have lowered over the last week and fishing went from very good to excellent.

Water Level Report
Dry Season-Zone N. East: Fishing has been very good for the last 8 consecutive weeks, and forecasts indicate that the upper Itapara, Kabori and upper Jufaris water levels should be falling into optimum levels, which is normal at the end of December. We will be moving our stand-by operations into this area. See how this water level dynamics coincide with the large green map below.
Dry Season-Zone N. West: Water levels on the Negro river northern tributaries have all began to drop, and as such we have moved two of our stand-by operations into this area for our incoming January anglers.
Dry Season-Zone S. East: Water levels in this area 150 miles south of Manaus are high, which is normal for this time of the year.
Dry Season-Zone S. West: Water levels in this area 450 miles south of Manaus are high, which is normal for this time of the year.


Below you can see the map of expected precipitation for the first three months of 2021. Note that our fishing areas coincide with the low rainfall area in light brown colors. However, the Barcelos area were most anglers fish in public waters is in the high rainfall area (in green).

ALMOST 10% OF PEACOCKS WERE OVER 10LBS ON THE OMERO LAKES

 

Weekend's Tally (only 2 ½ days) Note: This 2 ½ days report is to rush last weekend's conditions to our incoming anglers.   Jufaris River (Mid/High) in Dry Season-Zone N. East: The Palhares group of 8 anglers caught 165 fish. Water levels in this Season-Zone are high but should start to fall according to the 10-day rainfall forecast (see below). Last week’s party of 6 anglers landed 736 peacocks during the full 6 days of fishing.   Curiucu River in Dry Season-Zone N. East: The Mauricio group of 6 anglers landed 307 fish with as many as 20 peacocks over 10 lbs, including a 19 pounder. Water levels in this region are higher than ideal, but have lowered over the week. Last week’s party of 6 anglers landed 907 peacocks during the whole 6 day period, which is very good considering the high water levels.      

Water Level Report   Dry Season-Zone N. East: Fishing has been very good for the last 7 consecutive weeks, despite water level being a bit higher than expected for this time of the year.   Dry Season-Zone N. West: As predicted in our previous report water levels in the Negro river and its southern tributaries have continued to drop, and as such we have moved two of our stand-by operations into this area, with one operation already fishing the lower Jufaris this week. In the nearby town of Barcelos, the accumulated 10-day rainfall forecast (see below) is less than 2 inches, which is below average for this time of the year, indicating that water levels should continue to drop.   Dry Season-Zone S. East: Water levels in this area 150 miles south of Manaus are high, which is normal for this time of the year.   Dry Season-Zone S. West: Water levels in this area 450 miles south of Manaus are high, which is normal for this time of the year.

Weekend's Tally:   Jufaris River (mid/high) in Dry Zone N. East: The Adilson group of 6 anglers landed 183 fish. We saw intense rains in this area, leading to increasing water levels.   Curiucu River in Dry Zone N. East: The Leite group of 6 anglers caught 247 fish, with the largest being 15 pounds. This area also saw high and increasing water levels.   Xeurini River in Dry Zone N. West: The Fonseca group of 6 anglers caught 93 fish.

Water Level Report   Dry Zone N. East: Higher Rainfall than predicted, leading to rising water level. However, fishing has been very good in this area for the last 5 consecutive weeks.   Dry Zone N. West: As predicted in our previous report water levels in the Negro river and its southern tributaries have continued to drop, and these tributaries are now very fishable. We have moved two of our stand-by operations into this area, with one operation already fishing the lower Jufaris. This private river has bigger fish. The rain forecast over the next seven days in the nearby town of Barcelos (see below) is below average for this time of the year, which means water levels should continue to drop.   Dry Zone S. East: Water levels in this area 150 miles south of Manaus are high, which is normal for this time of the year. Our private rivers in this area during the Dry Zone period of August-October were closed due to Covid.   Dry Zone S.

Weekend’s tally:   Omero lakes in Dry Zone N. East: The Jefferson group of 13 anglers arrived in November 14th, landing 742 fish including 48 larger than 8 pounds, despite high rain intensity on Saturday.

Water level report:      Dry-Zone N. East – The Branco River stopped rising over the weekend because of lower rains at its headwaters, and because the Negro basin also started to drop. We will continue fishing in this promising Zone.   Dry-Zone N. West – The lower Xeriuni River has good water levels since it is under the influence of the Branco River basin. We will continue fishing this Zone. All water levels on the Negro River basin tributaries are now rapidly dropping and should be fishable in about a week. Also, the rain forecast in the mid-Negro (Barcelos) is lower than the Branco (see 10-day weather forecasts below).   Dry-Zone S. East – Water levels are rising in this area 150 miles south of Manaus which is normal for this time of the year. Our private rivers in this Dry-Zone time period of August–October were closed down due to Covid.    Dry-Zone S.
