Fishing Report: Dec 24, 2015 - Mid Season Recess

17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 POUNDS OF ALL NATURAL PEACOCK BASS
More than 140 trophies above 17lbs caught in our private fisheries in the first part of the Season.

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 12-15, 2015 (2 ½ days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report: December 12-15, 2015 (2 ½ days)

Remarkable 2.247 landed peacock bass was the final count for last week´s 9 angler group fishing at our private fishery at the Matupiri river, this number includes 17 trophies ranging from 21lbs to 17lbs. This weekend received a new group of 6 anglers that had a rainy start, forecasts show more rain episodes for the rest of the week.

The Jufaris fishery is a live demonstration of how a thorough and comprehensive sustainability policy in private waters, significantly increases the trophy ratio. Last week´s anglers landed the following weights: one 23 lbs, four 21 lbs, two 18lbs and one 17lbs, which is consistent with the past weeks as well as the 2.747 final fish-count for peacock bass.

Reported best performing lures this week are: yuzuri, perversa and jigs.

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.

Good levels – Water levels are below optimum levels due to the El Niño influence – Fisheries are very fishable for peacock bass and yields have significantly improved, see tendency in with previous fishing reports. Weather forecast for Barcelos show some modest  rain episodes for the coming days that will continue to have a positive influence on the fishery. Camp hosts inform that water levels have descended very little.

Last week´s group of 6 anglers final count was 1.211, largest one @ 20lbs  plus several trairas, bicudas, jacundas, piranhas, etc. Best performing lures as reported were: propellers, top water plugs and jigs.

Trophy fest at the Jufaris, last week´s record was 23lbs, that has already been matched this weekend by the incoming anglers. All intermediate weights from 23 to 17 lbs were landed last week and this last weekend two 21 pounders were also reported.  Jufaris river final landed peacock bass count for last week was 2.897 among 18 anglers, while this last weekend the total was 1.490 landed peacock bass among 20 anglers and looks very promising. Fly-in Floating Cabins in the headwaters will be moving downriver where water levels and fishing results have been better with an excellent trophy/angler ratio.

 Mid-Week Fishing Report: November 28-30, 2015 (2 ½ days)

Last weekend (2 ½ days) groups at the Jufaris exceeded the 1000 landed peacock bass mark, the  largest one weighed 17lbs. They still have the rest of the week to challenge last week´s mark of 20lbs for this fishery. Although water levels are on the low side of the equation weather forecast for Barcelos (below) indicates that some significant rain episodes will have a positive influence in the coming days.  This week the Xeruini fishery rests and last week group of 8 finished with a 1480 fish-count with the largest weighing 16lbs.

As usual, last week´s group fishing at the Matupiri river presented the full trophy scale starting at 20lbs. Last weekend  we  received a group of 6 anglers who already hit the 19lbs mark. Forecast for Borba (below) show some rain episodes towards the end of the week.

Best performing lures this week are mid water plugs, yozuri and jigs.
