Happy New Years from the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge and thanks for checking the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge Fishing Report. Not surprisingly we rang in the 2018 with great fishing here at the Aga Boa Amazon Lodge. With a mix of veteran anglers and first-time guests the New Year week was a ton of fun and the fishing was great. Check out a shot of long time Agua Boa angler Doyt Conn with a nice Peacock Acu. Right on “D.”
The water levels for the first group of 2018 was perfect, offering excellent sight casting opportunities and great wade fishing. Not only are we in the sweet spot for water levels but we have a large variety of fish species in the Agua Boa river system as well. Veteran Agua Boa Angler, twelve-year-old Jackson Wanderer, put on a fishing clinic last week landing large Peacock Acu, Arowana, Payara and Pirarucu, just to mention a few. Way to go Jackson! Enjoy a shot of Jackson with a great big peacock and an Arowana.
Technical Tip. Hey folks, for any of you that have fished with us you already know that we have the best guides in the Amazon. We are lucky to have six locals that grew up on the regions rivers and know the fishery like the backs of their hands. Over the years they have developed a great command of “guiding English,” which helps put our guests on fish and maximizes sight fishing opportunities. However, they do not have the conversational English skills to do a lot of chit chatting. But, in the era of advanced technology, the world of cell phones and their app’s can play a fun role in your experience with your guide. There are many language apps available for phones but we recommend the Google Translator App to help communicate when taking a break or having lunch. If you choose Google translation App, remember to download the Portuguese file so you can use it offline while on the river.
Thanks for checking the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge Fishing Report and we extend our best wishes to you and your loved ones for a wonderful 2018. Happy New Years from the Agua Boa team!
