Last weekend we received an exclusive group of 5 anglers in our Fly-in Floating Cabins V that will further explore the Cuiuni river. Fishing conditions have been excellent with little rain, and they landed a fantastic 22 lbs trophy within a 137 landed peacock bass fishcount.
Our private fishery at the Jufaris yielded to the 6 anglers that visited us last week, two trophies weighing 19 lbs., two 18 lbs and two 17 lbs within a 634 total, they were up to the challenge, and certainly enjoyed it according to the feedback we have received. This week´s group started with 21 peacock bass above the 10 lbs. mark, and fishing conditions look good for rest of the week.
10 anglers last week at the Matupiri finished the week with a 1.154 peacock bass count with the largest weighing 19 lbs. This weekend the new groups have endured some heavy rain episodes and they have landed 518 peacock bass with the largest one weighing 18 lbs. Rainfall is expected to continue for a few days, pls. check the Borba forecast below.
Best performing lures reported this week are wood choppers, perversa, and jigs.

Dry-Zone 3 – Mid North (South bank Negro tributaries and lower Branco tributaries). Good levels – Water levels continue to be a bit below optimum levels due to the El Niño influence – Fisheries are very fishable for peacock bass. Weather forecast for Barcelos show significant rain episodes for the coming days. Camp hosts inform that water levels are stable.
Dry-Zone 4 – North East (Upper Rio Branco Tributaries) – Way below average for this date due to the El Niño influence – Not fishable for peacock bass. Water levels have stabilized and continue being closely monitored by our scouts. Rain forecast for the season shows that the water level cycle will continue to be delayed due to the El Niño influence, although the CPTec in Brazil informs that it has already peaked and cycle should normalize soon.
