Weather conditions at our Marmelos private fishery are excellent. Water levels are a bit to high which is normal for this time of the year but fishing is still the best available in the Amazon. Trophy fish have not been larger than 17 lbs but fishing should improve.
Water levels are 2.0 ft. above optimal level and dropping (see graph below – Humaita). Weather forecast confirms tendency showing no significant rain episodes (see report below – Manicore – Alegrete station).
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 – Alegrete station, in the area of influence of the Marmelos private fishery shows no significant rain episodes for the rest of the week.
