Mid-Week Fishing Report:  October 22 - 24, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

In just 2 ½ days only 19 anglers now at private water fisheries in the Xeruini and Jufari rivers fished 951 Peacock Bass (see spreadsheet above). Other anglers at the Matupiri river had lower yields; however,  we are moving their  Fly-in Floating Cabins 500 miles North.

The previous parties landed 3.532 Peacock Bass in 6 days with many trophies over the 19 pounds category

River Plate Anglers social policies as related to the local communities at the Xeruini and Jufaris river are starting to show promising results, having our camps being regularly supplied with fresh native fruits, veggies and free range poultry that our guests enjoy in all their meals.

Hosts report that best performing lures at the current very low water leveles in Dry-Zone S.West are perversas, joao pepino and jigs, and on the Jufari and Xeruini (Dry-Zone N.West) top water props are yielding great results due to our no over-fishing policy.

WATER LEVEL FORECAST – (AMAZON BASIN 4 DRY REGIONS)

 

Dry-Zone N.West  RIVERS: JUFARI, XERUINI (see map at the top). Now at the Juvaris and the Xeruini rivers we have Fly in Floating cabins II and V. Water levels continue to be a bit too high, which is normal for this time of the season but, are very fishable for peacock bass. Water levels continue to drop quite rapidly in the main Negro channel. Forecast for Barcelos (see below) show that anglers will have to endure some significant rain episodes during the rest of the week.

 

LAST WEEK 

 

NEXT WEEK 

 

NOTE: 1 to 8 mm of rain a day, is by Amazon standards considered dry.

 

The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for this quarter. The yellow zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 40 - 45% that the rainfall will be below the historical mean. Therefore there will be a very small chance, if none at all, of high waters during our Nov. to Feb. fishing in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dry-Zone S.West RIVERS: MATUPIRI, IGAPO ACU (see map at the top). Now we have Fly in Floating Cabins I and III in the Igapo-Acu and the Matupiri rivers at extreme low levels and, barely fishable for peacock bass. We are moving cabins 500 miles North to Dry-Zone N.West where water levels are going into optimum levels.

 

LAST WEEK 

THIS WEEK 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dry-Zone N.East RIVERS: KABORI, ITAPARA (see map at the top). High levels. As forecasted last week water levels continue to be too high for peacock bass fishing which is normal for this time of the season. See chart for Caracaraí below where the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line last year´s levels and the red line historical extreme water levels.

 

NEXT WEEK 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dry-Zone S.East  :   RIVERS: MARMELOS  (see map at the top). Is closed down for the season due to the very extreme low level is the 2nd lowest in history  –Not acceptable for Peacock Bass fishing. We continue to weekly update this anomally. Please, note in  the “Rio Madeira” chart below, the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line represent last year´s levels (the second registered  lowest levels) and, the red line represents the historical lowest level. The blue line, today´s level, is between the last two lowest water levels ever! . And yet, Dry - Zone  N.East are still a bit  high  for fishing . This illustrates de importance of mobility within these 4 distinct Dry Zone areas.

 Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 15-17, 2016 (2 ½ days, only)

In just 2 ½ days 41 anglers now at our various Fly In Floating Cabins fished 1118 Peacock Bass (see spreadsheet above). These anglers are at our private fisheries on the Matupiri-Igapo-acu Indian Reserves, Jufari and Xeurini rivers on the selected Dry Zones show on the map bellow. 

The previous party landed 3005 Peacock Bass in 6 days with many trophies over the 19 pounds category

We continue to move our Fly-in Floating Cabins over 500 miles from Dry-Zones in the S.West to those in NWest where water levels are rapidly flowing out of the jungle into their optimum levels. Trophy sizes should increase correspondingly (please see Water Level Forecast below).

Hosts report that best performing lures at the current very low water leveles in Dry-Zone S.West are perversas, joao pepino and jigs, and on the Jufari and Xeruini (Dry-Zone N.West) top water props are yielding great results due to our no over-fishing policy.

   Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 08-10, 2016 (2 ½ days)

The private water fisheries at the Matupiri and Igapo-Acu in the Indian Reservation (Dry-Zone II – see map below) yielded last week 3.835 peacock bass, with several above the 19lbs mark

This week,  35 anglers in only 2 1/2 days fished  1.022 peacock bass, with 38 above the 10lbs mark and 11 over the 17lbs. category.

The 4 anglers breaking water at the Jufari private water fishery in Dry-Zone III started the week with 155 landed peacock bass with yet no fish over the 17 lbs category; however, water levels are still a bit high but very fishable, and will improve dramatically every day (see water level forecast below). As such, our other Floating Cabins are starting to move into this Zone, since water levels at Zone II, as mentioned, are already at a dangerously low level.

Hosts report that best performing lures at the current very low water leveles in Dry-Zone II are perversas, joao pepino and jigs and, on the Jufari (Dry-Zone III) propellers are working marvels.
