Mid-Week Fishing Report: June 09 – 11 , 2018 (2 ½ days)
PEACOCK BASS SEASON IS NOW OFFICIALLY OPEN
We have started operating in Dry-Zone S.E. last week at our exclusive Marmelos river private fishery. The Brito group integrated by 8 anglers broke waters this 2018-19 season, landing 969 peacock bass the largest of which weighed 17lbs.. The catch also included several notable specimens of pirara, pirapitinga, matrinxã, bicuda, apapá and piranhas. Last weekend we received the Ferracioli group, also of 8 anglers which in 2 1/2 days had a promising start landing 176 peacock bass the largest of which weighed 16 pounds.
Floating-Suites are stationed way up in the river, water levels are reported to be just 1.5 ft. above the ideal level. Weather forecast for the rest of the week shows no significant rain episodes in the area, making us think that the dropping water level tendency will continue.
Water levels are 1.5 ft. above optimal level and dropping (see graph below – Humaita). Weather forecast confirms tendency (see report below – Manicore).
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 high, closed for the season, which is normal for this time of the year.
NOTE that the yellow area at the North affecting the Amazon basin and our fisheries makes us believe that it might have a positive influence (70%) in our fisheries, averting extreme water levels for the rest of the season.
Weather forecast for Manicore in the area of influence of the Marmelos private fishery shows no significant rain episodes for the rest of the week.
