FISHING REPORT     Rio Marié Extended Season  |  JANUARY 18, 2022

Weather: We had mostly sunny days throughout the whole week.

Temperatures between: 25 and 40 C

 

River Conditions:

The Marie kept dropping and reached the lowest water level we’ve seen in the entire season, up to now.

 

Fishing Conditions:

We started the week at the bottom section of our fishing zone and fished all the way up to the Turi River. The Marie kept dropping, and low waters revealed several sandbars full of big fish hunting in the shallows! This provided our anglers and guides with amazing sight fishing opportunities.

 

Fishing Stats:
Number of Anglers: 12 Anglers

Peacock Bass Caught: 909

Temensis Over 10lbs: 14

Temensis Over 15lbs: 13

Temensis Over 20lbs: 4

 

Highlight of the Week:

Fishing the Marie River when the water is low is simply one of the greatest fishing experiences an angler can have. Sight casting for huge peacock bass cruising the sandbars finally happened, and it is perhaps the most desirable experience we offer, but also does not come without its challenges. The anglers who are able to make the perfect cast in front of the big bass were rewarded with explosive runs and great memories of monster bass to kick off their angling career at Rio Marie! Congratulations to our experienced anglers, who kept their cool in pressure situations and ended the week with some trophies along the Marie’s shallow banks.
