Mid Week Fishing Report: November 14th-16th, 2020 (2 ½ days)
5th WEEK AFTER STARTUP
Omero lakes in Dry Zone N. East: The Jefferson group of 13 anglers arrived in November 14th, landing 742 fish including 48 larger than 8 pounds, despite high rain intensity on Saturday. We expect water levels to continue to rise a bit, then rapidly fall during the week. See the Water Level Report below.
Jufari river in Dry Zone N. East: The Bonemberger group of 8 anglers arrived in November 14th, landing 446 fish, with the largest being 12 pounds. Water levels in this area are ideal, despite rain.
Xeurini river in Dry Zone N. West: The Zeca group of 3 anglers arrived in November 14th, landing 115 fish of which the largest weighed 10 pounds. This area had mid intensity rain for about an hour each day during the weekend. Water levels are a bit high, but we expect them to drop.
Water level report:
Dry-Zone N. East – The Branco River stopped rising over the weekend because of lower rains at its headwaters, and because the Negro basin also started to drop. We will continue fishing in this promising Zone.
Dry-Zone N. West – The lower Xeriuni River has good water levels since it is under the influence of the Branco River basin. We will continue fishing this Zone. All water levels on the Negro River basin tributaries are now rapidly dropping and should be fishable in about a week. Also, the rain forecast in the mid-Negro (Barcelos) is lower than the Branco (see 10-day weather forecasts below).
Dry-Zone S. East – Water levels are rising in this area 150 miles south of Manaus which is normal for this time of the year. Our private rivers in this Dry-Zone time period of August–October were closed down due to Covid.
Dry-Zone S. West – Water levels are high in this area 450 miles south of Manaus which is normal for this time of the year. Our private rivers in this Dry-Zone time period of June-August were closed down due to Covid.
