Greetings Peacock Fans and welcome back to the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge Fishing Report! We once again had a great week of fishing here on the beautiful Agua Boa River, and as always we would like to thank our wonderful guests for coming to spend a week with us here at the Lodge. The highlights of the week were many including more and more shots at Arowana. Congratulations to Bill Sheley for landing 9 Arowana in one day……that will be tough to top. Check out a shot with Bill and one of his many Arowana.
The Peacock fishing remains stellar landing good numbers of fish daily. As in recent weeks we continue to see a lot of fish in the 7-9-pound range and a ton of Butterflies. The anglers last week did tangle with some monsters estimated to be in the 18-pound range, but they didn’t get that big by being stupid, and the savvy bruts were able to head for cover and get rid of the fly. However, we did see some great fish landed between 10 and 16lbs. Enjoy a shot a shot of David Cote with a 15 ponder he landed last week.
Throughout the course of the week we did have a few rain showers but not enough to add any volume to the Agua Boa River. The overall drop was only a few inches but over the next week we expect to see a similar drop in water level. According the forecast we don’t expect a lot of rain in the near future which plays great for those of you that are coming to take advantage to the world class sight fishing at the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge.
Technical Tip: Every so often we like to give a tip that will help you maximize your fishing experience at the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge. This week we would like to cover the subject of flies. The good news is that if you have been here before, bring the same box, we still gravitate towards the staple peacock assortment of Whistlers, Half and Half’s and Baitfish patterns. We also continue to like flies in contrasting white colors. For example, blue and white, chartreuse and white, green and white, pink and white etc. In addition to the normal 4 to 6-inch flies it is also a good idea to have a portion of your flies available in 3 to 4 inches. As the water continues to drop, some of our guides have started to size down their fly choices.
Thank you for checking the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge Fishing Report. We look forward to seeing you here soon.
Carlos and Charlie
