Mid-Week Fishing Report: Sept 28 – 30, 2019 (2 ½ days)
Week end´s tally (2 ½ days):
Note: this 2 1/2 days report is to rush last weekend’s conditions to our incoming anglers.
Matupiri fishery in Dry-Zone S. West -: Last Saturday we received the Franceschini exclusive group of 2 anglers in our Floating cabins fishing the mid Matupiri. Their basket mainly consisted of 102 medium sized peacock bass, sighting several schools of fish predated by abundant botos (pink dolphins). Although visually enjoyable, it had a negative impact on their fishing yields. They enjoyed good weather conditions with no significant rain episodes, water levels continue to be a bit high but very fishable. Water levels are expected to keep the dropping tendency and some significant rain episodes are expected towards the weekend. Last week the Babek group of 4 anglers ended the week with an outstanding 1645 landed peacock bass.
Roçado fishery in Dry-Zone N. West -: Last Saturday we received the Smith group of 8 at the Roçado private fishery in Dry-Zone N.West, in the 2 1/2 days of this report they already have landed an outstanding 26lbs trophy plus a 21 pounder, and a 19 pounder, although they endured some heavy rain episodes, rainfall forecast shows that conditions will improve for the rest of the week (see forecast below). Last week´s largest trophy weighed 21lbs. Note: this fishery is under the strict single hook sportmanship policy.
