Today´s Average Water Levels:
in Dry-Zone N. East
Water level report: Dry-Zone N. East – The Branco River is low from little rain fall in its Venezuela basin so all of mouths of its tributaries have low water levels with excellent fishing. And, we are now fishing right in there!
Dry-Zone N. West – All water levels on the Negro River basin tributaries still remain high for reasonable fishing, which is not normal for this time of the year but it is happening with greater frequency due to the everchanging rain fall conditions in the “El Nino” era. The only exception with lower water levels is the lower Xeriuni River in our private water which is under the influence of the Branco River basin.
Dry-Zone S. East – Water levels are still good in this area 150 miles south of Manaus. Our private rivers in this Dry-Zone time period were also closed down due to Covid.
Dry-Zone S. West – Water levels are too low for good for good fishing. Our private rivers in this Dry-Zone time period of June-August were closed down due to Covid.
