Mid-Week Fishing Report: Aug 10 – 12, 2019 (2 ½ days)



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.

Marmelos fishery in Dry-Zone S. East -:   Last week the  Strong Jr. group ended the week with 1.725 peacock bass, largest of which weighed 18lbs.  Saturday we received the Magnuson mixed group of 8 anglers, fly fishermen and baitcasters. They have been enjoying perfect weather conditions and good water levels, their tally in just 2 1/2 days amounted to 523 landed peacock bass with an excellent size mix, largest of which weighed 16lbs.

This is the last group fishing at our Marmelos private fishery that will be closed for the rest of the Season. We have evaluated that we have reached the support capacity of the fishery ( technical parameter: 1.6 km. per angler for rivers with few lagoons), and although fishing conditions continue to be good, and yields have been superb, our preservation policies mandate us to close it for the rest of this Season. We strongly believe that strict compliance with sustainability policies guarantee that this fishery will be fully recovered for next Season anglers. Dry – Zone S.West is our next operative Zone, and we are already scouting best areas to break waters in the coming weeks. Floating Suites will be moving into the Matupiri river area in the next two weeks, after which we intend to resume operations there.
