So Far, So Goooood
After last year’s topsy-turvy weather conditions, we weren’t sure what to expect as our Amazon season began. After rescheduling many “raincheck” anglers from last year and adjusting our trip logistics to new airline schedules, we eagerly awaited the first fall fishing reports.
In August, our season-opener group fished the Marmellos River in the southern Amazon. Five first-time Amazon anglers managed to land more than 1,000 fish on fly and baitcasting tackle.
In September, falling river levels put the Marmellos on ice, while opening up the Matupiri and other tributaries along the Madeira system. Hosting two back-to-back groups with River Plate Anglers, Alan Zaremba recorded over 3,200 fish caught by two camps amid optimal fishing conditions.
Current conditions foretell an early start for the shift up to the Rio Negro. Captain Peacock starts fishing in October and is virtually sold-out for the rest of the prime season. We do have a few prime spots left on this great yacht, along with a couple of excellent weeks with our River Plate Anglers camps. We also have some good spots for payara, pirarucu, and giant Amazon catfish.
This is already shaping up to be a much better season than last year, so if you’re thinking about a peacock bass or other Amazon angling adventure, please give us a call for the latest update and available trip slots.
