Last week was the last week of the first half of the Peacock Bass season.  Yields  were  fantastic, making us believe that the fishing forecast for our private fisheries in the coming January is very positive.

We are now in our Mid-Season Recess and our operational staff has started to perform the scheduled maintenance protocols in our Fly-In Floating Cabins camps. We have successfully tested some new recipes that will be incorporated to the picnic lunch menu incorporating tasty local products.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: December 13-15, 2014 (2 1/2 days)

This is the last week in December that we are operating, next two weeks will be used to perform  the programmed  mid-season maintenance of our equipment and holiday recess of our operational staff.  Fair weather has been a constant during the last weekend in our camps and water levels continued to improve. Forecast for the coming days for Caracarai and Barcelos in the influence area of our operating private fisheries induce us to believe that January will present almost perfect fishing conditions to our visiting anglers.

Last week anglers at the upper Taperá landed a notable 40lbs. pirarara (redtail), while anglers at the Jufari  had a 20 lbs trophy peacock to show.  Total fish count for last week was 2.245 peacocks among 33 anglers. Other species caught included trairas, dogfish, aruana, jacunda, bicudas and piranhas with the typical piranha barbecue included.

This week we have two Fly-In Floating Cabins camps operating at the Jufaris and the Xeruini rivers. In the last 2 ½ days they already have 1 – 18lbs, 1 – 19 lbs. and 1 – 20lbs trophies  to show in a total of 401 landed peacocks among 14 anglers. Forecast for the rest of the week is excellent and camp reports anglers are really enjoying the experience and the challenge.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: December 06-08, 2014 (2 1/2 days)

This week we are hosting 33 anglers distributed in 4 Fly-In Floating Cabin camps fishing in our private fisheries at the Jufaris, Xeruini and Taperá rivers. Weather has been fair this last weekend with light rain episodes. Water levels have descended an average of 1 ft. throughout the fisheries. Headwaters of the Taperá are reaching the optimal water levels and fishing conditions. Forecasts show some significant rain episodes next two days getting better towards the weekend.

Last´s week total fish count was 1532 landed peacocks the largest one weighing 18lbs caught at the Taperá.  This week this fishery has already yielded one 18 pounder and one 17 pounder, in a total of 149 peacocks among our 6 savvy guests. Meanwhile in the Jufaris fishery  two 18 pounders were caught in the weekend within a 165 total for the weekend.  The Xeruini upper limit was 14lbs. Other species caught included, piranhas, bicudas, aruanas, jacundas.

Our daily reports via satellite phone from our camps show that we have happy anglers enjoying great fishing conditions, fair tropical weather and our traditional high standard service in the jungle. It is important to read these reports keeping in mind that we respect the different rhythm and abilities of our guests, so the shown yield of the fisheries is a combination of the fishery conditions plus the angler´s characteristics.

Please check the weather forecast for both Barcelos and Caracarai, directly in the influence area of our operating fisheries.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: November 29 - Dic. 01, 2014 (2 1/2 days)

Last´s week total fish count for the two operating camps was 867 landed peacocks, the largest one weighing 17lbs. caught at the Xeruini.  This week we are operating three Fly-In-Floating cabins camps, starting operations in the Jufaris river.

The total fish count for the three camps in the last weekend (2 ½ fishing days) was 377 peacocks  with the largest one weighing 15 lbs. caught at the Jufaris river. Jigs and Rapalas are the stars of the weekend regarding lures. Other species caught spiced the experience, piranhas, jacundas, trairas, payaras, etc.

Anglers enjoyed fantastic weather conditions last weekend, and forecast shows that they will continue to do so for the rest of the week. This rainfall bonanza has a direct positive effect on the descending tendency of the water levels of our private fisheries operating now. The Itapará rate of drainage is being better than that of the Xeruini, both are expected to be nearer to the optimal fishing level in the coming weeks. Please check the weather forecast for both Barcelos and Caracarai, directly in the influence area of our operating fisheries.
