MID-WEEK FISHING REPORT: DEC. 02 – 05, 2017 (2 ½ DAYS)


First day 6 anglers put under their belt a 20lb , 19lb, 18lb and three 17lb


Groups arriving last Saturday are now fishing in optimal water levels at the Xeruini and Jufaris rivers. The Weeler group of 7 anglers are mostly fly fishing and had a promising start landing 534 peacock bass in just 2 1/2 days. No rain and almost perfect water levels completed a blissful picture. Camp informs us that red/yellow bucktails are making a smash.

Meanwhile the Gungoll group at the Jufaris, mainly baitcasters, are also obtaining excellent yields with an average of 62 peacocks per boat per day and with trophies of 20lbs., 2 x 19 lbs, 1 x 18lbs and 3 x 17 lbs. on the first 2 1/2 days. Joao pepinos, perversas, choppers and jigs are quoted as the best working lures.


Dry-Zone S.East 

Water levels are high and closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year. Plus, the maximum support capacity of 1mile per angler was reached with a  total of 48 anglers

 Dry-Zone S.West 

Water levels same as above. Plus, the maximum support capacity of 1 mile per angler was reached with a  total of 86 anglers

Dry-Zone N.West

Water levels keep descending and are expected to reach their optimum levels in the coming days. Headwaters of the Jufaris and Xeruini are improving their yields by the day. No significant rain episodes are expected for the rest of the week.

Dry-Zone N.East

Water levels keep dropping rapidly, presenting spots with excellent fishing conditions, we have started fishing at the Kabori with excellent results. Forecasts are excellent also.

The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for the next three months. The light green zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35% that the rainfall will be above the historical mean. Therefore, the dry water cycle is expected to develop almost normal in the coming months in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East)
