Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 27 – 29 , 2018 (2 ½ days)

24 lbs. Trophy Peacock Bass landed at the Itapará

“Tremendous experience!! Our guide worked very hard to make our trip a success, and the camp staff made the experience wonderful. More than I expected, though I would like to have caught a 20 pounder … “

” I just got back from my second annual trip with River Plate. Had a great time. The four guides at the Upper Jufaris were great, we had Gee Gee and his expertise at wood-chopper tuning is genius level”

Dry-Zone N.East (see map below) is fishing at its finest. Yet again last week groups with 39 anglers beat the 5.000 landed peacock bass mark.

Last weekend at our Itapará private fishery, several trophies above the 17lbs benchmark were caught and released, with the (up to now) season record of 24lbs.. Simultaneously the Jufaris and Xeruini produced plenty of  graceful aruanás, massive arapaimas, and several other species supplementing the peacock bass tally and enhancing the blissful experience. Fishing conditions are good, no rain during the weekend and forecasts show no significant rain for the rest of the week in our fisheries.



Dry-Zone S.East 

Water levels are high, closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year.

 Dry-Zone S.West 

Water levels are high,  closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year.

(beige in map above) Dry-Zone N.West

Water levels are about 2.0ft. above jungle level and rising. The Negro influence is being felt in the lower sectors of the Xeruini and Jufaris, floating suites have moved upriver. No significant rain is expected in the coming days.

Dry-Zone N.East

The Branco basin is in its normal receding cycle. Fishing conditions are good in all our fisheries. Negligible rain is expected for the rest of the week (see water level sketch below)

NOTE that the green area at the North affecting the Amazon basin and our fisheries is now lighter, this makes us believe that it might have a positive influence (70%) in our fisheries, averting extreme water levels for the rest of the season.
