Rio Marié 2019 Season Fishing Report
Week 1: August 22-29, 2019
Weather: The weather was somewhat unpredictable during our first week with some sun as well as overcast and rainy days.
Water Conditions: Water levels rose a little after some rain at the headwaters of the Marié and Turi. The water temperatures ranged from 26-29ºC.
Fishing Conditions: Even with some rising water and colder temperatures, we had a lot of midday surface action. All the spots downstream brought good results. The fishing upstream was less effective, but we found a good number of butterfly peacock bass on the Rubo River.
Number of anglers: 7
Butterflies caught: 94
Temensis caught: 22
Temensis over 10lbs: 2
Temensis over 15lbs: 8
Temensis over 20lbs: 1
Highlight of the Week: The topwater action was very good. Eric caught more than six big temensis between 12 and 18 pounds. The biggest fish of the week was a beautiful temensis measuring 90 centimeters and weighing in at 22.2 pounds!
