Weather: The weather during our third week was rainy the first two days with temperatures a bit lower and overcast skies for the rest of the week.

Temperatures ranged between 25 – 35C.

River Conditions: We started the week with raising water. The Marié presented sand beaches underwater, and lagoons and lakes were in good condition. Some tributaries and small jungle creeks dropped a good amount of water. During the week the river raised three feet.

Fishing Conditions: We encountered challenging fishing conditions in the beginning of the week. The clouded sky and abrupt drop in the water temperature made fish lazy. Despite the negative conditions, anglers kept fishing hard every day, and by the end of the week everyone experienced the power of the Marie’s famous gigantic peacock bass! Most of the big fish were caught using big streamers and intermediate tips.
