Last week we hosted two groups at the Igapo-Acu private fishery, the first group ended the week with at total of 1.394 landed peacocks with one 17 pounder to show. Simultaneously the second group landed 1.338 peacocks, with a fair amount in the mid-size range (8-16lbs).
Our Fly-In Mobile Floating Suites moved to the lower Matupiri this week, and last Saturday it received 12 anglers which have landed 429 peacocks. Meanwhile the Suites at the Igapo-Acu are hosting 8 anglers who have fished 512 peacocks, largest one weighing 14lbs.
We operate in 10 different private fisheries along the Amazon basin, and this allows us to be able to operate within 5 different dry-weather regions. Water levels at the Muhura reservation river system (Igpo-Acu , Matupiri, Tupana) are still a bit above the expected average for the season, but they are descending at a good rate, estimated delay is 3 weeks. We are permanently scouting all regions, and on this regard and we decided to operate this week at the Omero lakes, where a completely different panorama is offered, water levels are a bit below average.
8 anglers have fished for the last 2 ½ days at the 1st of the Omero lakes landing 425 peacocks ´plus several Aruanás, Tambaquis, Bicudas, Jacundas, Cará, etc. Host reports that top water rapalas and perversas are the best performing lures.
Forecasts for the week make us believe that all groups will enjoy almost perfect weather conditions in both areas, pls. see charts below.
The trimester forecast: http://clima1.cptec.inpe.br/ shows that we can expect the temperatures to be a bit above the average for this season and the rainfall forecast to be abt. 30% below average, implying that we should expect water levels to be below the standard for the coming months in the season. Please see water level map below. Needless to say that these predictions are based in the expected El Niño influence, that should be stronger this season than in the previous one.
