Mid-Week Fishing Report: November 26 - 28, 2016. (2 1/2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report:  November 26 - 28, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

Anglers fishing last week in Dry-Zone N.West finished the week with a 99.91 average landed peacock bass per angler, showing a significant improvement that encompasses the tendency of the descending water levels.

This weekend coincident with the Thanksgiving holiday we are fishing only in the Jufaris private fishery where 16 anglers landed almost 500 peacock bass with a good size mix. Anglers enjoyed perfect tropical weather conditions with refreshing light rain episodes. Water levels continue descending.

Best reported performing lures this week are Perversas, Joao Pepino, Yozuri, 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 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. Last weekend anglers enjoyed perfect tropical weather with refreshing showers and forecast for Barcelos (se below) show that weather conditions will be fine for the rest of the 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 three months. The pale green zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35% that the rainfall will be a bit 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, e.g. the Omero Lakes and the lower Itapara river 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.

 

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). 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 are too low and unacceptable for peacock bass fishing which is normal for this time of the year.
