Amazon Basin Fishing Report 11th September 2023

9th week fishing the Amazon and our plan to stay on the Matupiri paid off. This time it was the Brock family together with 3 US anglers that had the opportunity to fish these exclusive waters. Guests had a blast, boating some high-quality fish; a few 18s and 19s. But the highlight was the 20-pounder caught on the 4th day which made for a hard beast to reel in. It was measured at 79cm. This week was all about quality fish rather than numbers; average size of fish increased considerably.

Weather: Sunny days with some cloud cover. We experienced a few short showers but that isn’t keeping the water level from decreasing. Our South West Zone forecasts good weather with some chances of rain.

Groups: 1

Anglers: 8

Peacock Bass Count: 736*

Biggest: 20lbs

Over 8lbs: 158
