FISHING REPORT     Rio Marié 2019 Season Fishing Report  |  DECEMBER 19, 2019

Weather: The weather was mostly sunny every day with some occasional showers during the day, usually in the afternoon. We also had some rainy nights during the week. Temperatures ranged between 34-37°C.

 

 

 

River Conditions: We had been facing high water levels in recent weeks. To remedy the situation, we’ve been going far up the Rio Turi to find better water levels and increase fishing productivity. Indeed, we found success. Water temperatures were between 28-29°C.

Fishing Conditions: Going far up the Rio Turi paid off, as we had far more action than we would have had otherwise. We caught a lot of butterflies and had a great deal of fun chasing these fish. The big peacock bass were slow to take flies, but we did catch some very nice fish. 

Fishing Stats:

Number of anglers: 8
Butterflies caught: 326
Temensis caught: 21

Highlight of the Week
: A big 18-pound peacock bass was caught on the very last cast of the day by Andrew. This is proof that it is worth pushing to the end, having faith, and being ready! We also had a lot of peacock bass doubles, which made for a great deal of fun.
