FR: September 9-16, 2023: Week 11

The family trip of a lifetime!

517 Peacocks boated by 8 anglers

Week 11 of our season and fourth on the Matupiri river. We had the pleasure of hosting the whole Hall family. The week started a little bit slow, some of the guys had to adjust their technique while some of the lagoons were a tad high. But as the week moved forward, so did the Hall’s; catching quite a few 15s and 16s with the biggest one caught by Brad – a 17lb unit that wouldn’t stop without a proper fight. Waters keep going down at a fast pace, 3 inches/day and we are planning to stay for a couple weeks more before it becomes too dry and hot for Peacocks.

Weather: We had cloud cover and some short showers that helped cool off the river and our angler although sunny bright skies were the usual during the week. Our South West Zone forecasts roughly the same weather for next week.

Groups: 1
