Amazon Basin Fishing Report, 31 January-2 February 2021 (2 ½ Days)
Its great to see even in these much shorter sessions that such a multitude and amount of fish being landed! We will now hand you over to the head-guide to talk about the session –
This brief report was put together last night. Water levels continue dropping as forecasted and fishing is at excellent levels at the Omero Lakes in our North East Zone, which typically enjoys low water this time of year (see map below). At this writing, a total of 6 anglers, fishing with party leader Higgins on Fly-In River Train II had landed 257 fish on Monday, of which 20% weighed more than 10 pounds, with 5-6 peacocks in the 18-19 pounder category.
Fishing numbers in terms of mid-sized peacocks cannot get any better. We mentioned this possibility in our last fishing report.
Water levels are expected to continue to drop on the Omero, and maintain a low level for at least another 2 weeks. This trend is further evidenced in today’s 10-day forecasts which is similar to last week’s (see below).
Today’s 10-day accumulated rainfall forecastsare for the small towns marked in green. These forecasts have a direct impact on the Omero lakes in North East Zone.The 10-day rainfall below the threshold of 1.8 to 2.0 inches means that water levels should continue dropping on the Omero even though the lower basin is flooded.
