Mid-Week Fishing Report: Feb. 23-25, 2013 (2 1/2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report: Feb. 23-25, 2013 (2 1/2 days)

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.

Our private fisheries at the Xeruini and Jufaris basin have been experiencing heavy rain, they 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 improve in the coming days. Last week the group (8 guests) fishing at our TerraPreta private fishery in the Xeruini river conquered a noteworthy 2090 total of landed peacocks.

The Itapara river area has experienced little rain and fishing conditions are good. Last week´s group obtained an excellent size relationship over 10% of their total peacock tally above the 8 lbs mark. This week the group of 8 anglers  started the week ( 2 ½ days ) landing 266 peacocks.

Season is coming to an end in the next two weeks. Overall balance has been very good and we will be moving our Fly-In Floating cabins to Winter quarters for maintenance in March, new courtesy tackle arrivals will be incorporated, menus will be redesigned, etc. etc. We are listening to all our guests comments and recommendations.

CPTEC Brazil´s Climate prevision agency (  http://clima1.cptec.inpe.br/)   accumulated rain report of the last weekend.  Rain forecast probabilities range the 40% mark which is low.  We are expecting fishing conditions to improve at the Xeruini and Jufaris.

Our guests at the Xeruini and Jufaris basin have experienced heavy rain on the last 2 days, this means that they had very challenging fishing conditions. On the bright side this also means that the water levels have been going up and it forecasts that peacock bass fishing conditions are improving with every inch it raises. Once the rain is over our fly-fishing guests will enjoy optimal fishing conditions for this fishing style. Notwithstanding the adverse fishing conditions (for the sport fishermen) the group (8 guests) fishing at our Terra Preta private fishery in the Xeruini river conquered an amazing 733 total of landed peacocks in the last 2 ½ days, largest one weighing 18lbs.

Last week our guests in the Fly-in Floating cabins fishing at the Lagoa area in the Xeruini experienced once again an excellent size relationship with 11% of their landed peacocks above the 8lbs mark and the biggest with over 18lbs. 

The Itapara river waters are stabilized and they experienced little rain in the last few days, fishing conditions are good.

Worth noting that this week is Carnival week in Brazil, and guests passing through Barcelos may get a glimpse of the traditional feast. Barcelos is famous for its aquarium tropical fish production, and each Escola do Samba in the local contests represent a different species.

CPTEC Brazil´s Climate prevision agency (  http://clima1.cptec.inpe.br/)   accumulated rain report of today.  Rain forecast probabilities range the 40% mark , we are expecting fishing conditions to improve at the Xeruini and Jufaris areas and to maintain the adequate water levels that we have been enjoying.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: February 02 - 04, 2013

Last weekend our guests at our private–waters  on  the Xeruini and the Jufaris experienced some heavy rain and some significant gusts of wind having to brave it out in difficult fishing conditions. On the bright side, water levels are going up from last week’s extreme low levels and, we expect them to improve throughout the week. Guests at the Cacobi area in the Jufaris arrived late on Saturday so they only fished for two days when this report is issued. We are hosting a group of fly-fishermen in the Caju area of the Jufaris and, to be fair,, weather conditions have not been helpful for this fishing technique.

On the other hand , the Itapera water levels which were always a bit high for  Peacocks Bass Fishing,experienced little rain and, since 10-day forecasts indicate no significant rain, water levels should keep improving by continuing its  descending trend .

Last week our guests in the Fly-in Floating Cabins fishing at the Lagoa area in the Xeruini experienced an excellent  Peacock Bass Fishing in terms of size with 17,5% above the 8lbs mark and the biggest with over 20lbs. 

In the coming weeks we are expecting to host 3 fly-fishing groups that will be experiencing the new private water fly-fishing areas (sanctuaries) that our scouts have been working on in the Xeruini and Jufaris basins. We plan to have these private- water areas earmarked throughout the next seasons and to be fully dedicated to fly-fishing. These sanctuaries will develop an identity based on their own merits.
