PRIVILEGED ANGLERS ENJOYING THE LAST WEEKS AT THE MARMELOS RIVER

 

 

Last week the Tarr group ended the week with 1.478 landed peacock bass with several trophies weighing 17 lbs using mixed fishing styles.

This weekend the Shulyak group arrived at our Marmelos private fishery, again with a mix of baitcasters and fly-fishermen, their largest trophy up to yesterday was above the 17lbs. mark.  Great top water action continues to be the name of the game.

Fishing conditions are excellent, weather forecast for the rest of the week only show some mild normal tropical storms with no significant rainfall.

 

 


Dry-Zone S.East 

Water levels are at the optimal level and keep slowly descending (see graph below – Humaita). Weather forecast confirms tendency showing some mild tropical storms with no significant rainfall (see forecast below – Manicore).

Note: red line are 2018 water levels, the light blue strip is the 15 to 85% probability, the dotted line is the median and the yellow line is the historic 1969 minimum.

NOTE that the yellow area at the North affecting the Amazon basin and our fisheries makes us believe that it might have a positive influence (70%) in our fisheries, averting extreme high water levels for the rest of the season.

OPTIMAL FISHING CONDITIONS AT THE MARMELOS RIVER.

 

Last week the Sullivan group ended the week with 1.925 landed peacock bass the largest of which weighed 15lbs that presented quite a challenge for a savvy fly fisherman.

This weekend the Tarr group arrived at our Marmelos private fishery, with a mix of baitcasters and fly-fishermen, their largest trophy up to yesterday was a 17lbs. peacock bass.  Great top water action and propellers and poppers are having the best performance as reported by the camp host.

Fishing conditions are just perfect, weather forecast for the rest of the week only show some mild normal tropical storms with no significant rainfall.

PEACOCK BASS ON THE FLY

 

Last weekend we received at our Marmelos private fishery the Sullivan group, consisting of 8 fly-fishermen who are enjoying the clear waters of this river. They endured some heavy rain episodes during the weekend and the forecast shows some more tropical storms for the rest of the week, although without significant rainfall. Water levels are at an optimum level. Worth noting that not only numbers matters, fly fishermen approach the challenge and the experience with a different attitude, where other intangible factors are relevant.

The Bellamy bait casting group, ended the week with an outstanding 1.967 landed peacock bass, the largest of which was 17lbs.

Water levels are excellent and weather forecast for the week is great (see below). They had a great start landing 696 peacock bass. Last week the Roos group final tally was 1.516 peacock bass, the largest of which weighed 17lbs.

 

NEW AND NOTEWORTHY:

We are very happy to announce that one of River Plate Angler´s independent Brazilian operators was selected by local Indian tribes and Brazilian authorities for the exclusive fishing rights to the upper Uneuixi River. The reserve is one of the last vestiges of untouched trophy peacock bass fishing in the Amazon.
