FR: August 12-19, 2023: Week 8

Moving North

477 Peacocks boated by 7 anglers

Week 8 of our 2023 season and we switched rivers. We moved our camp north to the Matupiri reserve in search of better waters, although the week started at a slow pace. Water levels weren’t at the right height when our group arrived, but the fishing got up the pace as the week progressed. Waters have receded at a very high rate which highly improved the group’s odds. We plan to stay at the Matupiri given the rate at which waters are lowering; we are hopeful that next week the river will produce great fishing opportunities.
