Mid-Week Fishing Report: November 19 - 21, 2016. (2 1/2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report:  November 19 - 21, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

32 anglers fishing last week in Dry-Zone NWest finished the week with 2.257 landed peacocks with a good size mix, the largest trophy weighing over 21lbs. caught at the upper Jufari private fishery

This weekend anglers fishing in the lower Jufari and Xeruini rivers endured stormy weather conditions with heavy rain episodes, conditions are expected to improve throughout the week. The upper Jufari group enjoyed milder conditions and were able to land 30 peacocks per angler in this 2 ½ days fishing. Water level in the low part of the rivers is still a bit high but we believe that they should resume their descending tendency in the coming days.

Best reported performing lures this week are Perversas, propellers, and jigs. Other species caught were: traira, bicuda, 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 continue to be a bit too high and have started descending, but, are very fishable for peacock bass. Last weekend anglers endured some storms and heavy rain episodes at the lower Jufari and Xeruini, forecast for Barcelos (se below) show that weather consitions should improve for the rest of the week.

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 yellow zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35 - 40% 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 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, e.g. the Omero Lakes and the lower Itapara river are presenting good contidions 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 ( which is normal for this time of the year). Interestingly 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 are too low and unacceptable for peacock bass fishing which is normal for this time of the year.
