Fishing Reports

Listed below are the Mid-Week Amazon Fishing Reports (only 2 1/2 days). They are rushed by e-mail to our agents every Tuesday night, in order that our weekend incoming guests may be duly informed before departure.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: Nov. 14-16, 2015 (2 1/2 days)

Two 20 pounders followed by 3 peacock bass weighing 19lbs, one 18 pounder, two 17 pounders etc. etc. adding up to a total of 1.952 landed peacock bass among 7 very savvy anglers in Ted Dugey´s group who fished last week at the Matupiri river. Last weekend the new group at this camp started the count with two 18 pounders with a promising attempt to break the previous week benchmark.

Fly-in floating suites stationed in Dry Region 3 at the Jufaris river received two groups last weekend. They had some rain and the forecast shows that more is coming their way towards the end of the week. Implication is that water levels are expected to improve since descending trend seems to be reverting. Trairas, piranhas and jacundas are also present in the catch. Best performing lures are: Yozuri, Perversa, Joao Pepino, jigs, and we have fly-fishermen with mid water floating sinking lines working hard.
