This is our last Fishing Report after a very successful season which is ending a bit early due to the heavy rainfall that is causing the water levels in our private fisheries to increase and starting in some places to get into the jungle. We are rescheduling all our guests that were coming in March for the next season.
The Xeruini and Jufaris private fisheries are no exception to the above comment and our guests have had very challenging Peacock Bass fishing conditions. Water levels have been going significantly up. Rain forecasts for the area e.g. Caracarai (http://tempo1.cptec.inpe.br/cidades/tempo/1312) imply that fishing conditions will not improve significantly in the coming days, at least until Saturday. Once more, last week´s group (6 guests) fishing at our TerraPreta private fishery in the Xeruini river exceeded the 800 total of landed peacocks.
The Itapara river area has also experienced heavy rain this time and fishing conditions were very challenging also. Last week´s group of 8 obtained a total tally of 765. This week the group of 8 anglers started the week ( 2 ½ days ) landing 132 peacocks the biggest weighing 17 lbs.
CPTEC Brazil´s Climate prevision agency (http://clima1.cptec.inpe.br) accumulated rain report of the last weekend. Rain forecast probabilities range the 80% mark which is high. We are expecting water levels and fishing conditions to deteriorate and are closing the season.
