Last Saturday our Fly-in Floating Cabins III received an elite group or 4 anglers that will be fishing the Jufaris private fishery working their way up-river moving the camp way into the Caju community territory. Weather has been fine and forecasts don´t show any significant episodes in the coming days. Water levels improving as they move upriver.

Best reported performing lures this week are, propellers and joao pepino. Other species caught were: Jacunda, peixe-cachorro, piranha.

WATER LEVEL FORECAST – (AMAZON BASIN 4 DRY REGIONS)

 

Dry-Zone N.West  RIVERS: JUFARI, XERUINI (see map at the top). Jufari and Xeruini rivers water levels are a bit above average for this time of the season due to La Niña influence that has delayed the cycle a bit, but keep descending at a good rate, very fishable for peacock bass. This past weekend anglers enjoyed perfect weather conditions and forecast shows no significant rain episodes for the rest of the week (see forecast for Barcelos below). See also water level chart for Moura below where the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line last year´s levels and the red line historical extreme water levels.

 

LAST WEEK 

 

NEXT WEEK 

 

BARCELOS FORECAST

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

The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for three months. The pale green zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35% that the rainfall will be above the historical mean. Therefore there will be a very small chance, if none at all, of high waters during our Dec. to Feb. fishing in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East).

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

Dry-Zone N.East RIVERS: KABORI, ITAPARA (see map at the top). Mid-high levels. Water levels have descended and are still a bit high in some fisheries, nevertheless selected zones are presenting good conditions 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 also check Caracarai weather forecast below.

 

NEXT WEEK 

CARACARAI FORECAST

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

Dry-Zone S.East  :   RIVERS: MARMELOS  (see map at the top). Is closed down for the season ( which is normal for this time of the year). Although it has started to rise, it is worth noting that this has been the 2nd lowest level in history. 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.

 

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

 

Dry-Zone S.West RIVERS: MATUPIRI, IGAPO ACU (see map at the top). Closed down for the season. Water levels rising and unacceptable for peacock bass fishing which is normal for this time of the year.

Water levels keep improving as well as the size mix of the catch. Forecasts for the rest of the week show fair tropical weather for both areas.

Best reported performing lures this week are, propellers, mid water lures and jigs. Other species caught were: aruana, traira, bicuda, jacunda, peixe-cachorro, piranha.
