Over 1000 fish landed in the Omero Lakes by 6 non-avid anglers including 70 multispecies with two 19 lbs and one 21 lbs peacock!
Note: This 2 ½ days report is to rush last weekend’s conditions to our incoming anglers.
Curiucu River in Dry Season-Zone N. East: The Francisco group of 8 anglers landed 300 fish over the weekend, including a 17 pounder. Last week’s group finished with 1070 caught fish, with two 19 pounders and a 21 pounder (not shown in pictures yet). Over 10% of the landed fish included Aruana, Arapaima, Sardinata, Tambaqui and Apapa. Two fishermen landed non-stop Aruana with dry flies. Water levels in this area have lowered over the last week and fishing went from very good to excellent.
Water Level Report
Dry Season-Zone N. East: Fishing has been very good for the last 8 consecutive weeks, and forecasts indicate that the upper Itapara, Kabori and upper Jufaris water levels should be falling into optimum levels, which is normal at the end of December. We will be moving our stand-by operations into this area. See how this water level dynamics coincide with the large green map below.
Dry Season-Zone N. West: Water levels on the Negro river northern tributaries have all began to drop, and as such we have moved two of our stand-by operations into this area for our incoming January anglers.
