Amazon Basin Fishing Report 6th July 2022


From June 25th thru July 2nd, 6 anglers landed in 6 ½ days 2,081 peacocks with over 22 fish in the teens.This tally excludes a multifarious array of other tropical species such as the Jacundá, Apapá, Cachorra, Oscar, Aruana, Wolfish, Pacú, Bicúda, and Pirañha.


Since we are breaking waters the most effective lures for bait casters are large 6-inch topwater lures almost any color. For fly fishermen poppers for smaller and midsized fish worked well.


We wish hereby to inform our incoming anglers where might our six River Trains be operating according to the expected water levels across our 10 Private Rivers. All water levels continue to be high North and up to 200 miles South of Manaus.

However, in the South East Zone, 350 miles South East of Manaus, water levels are low (perfect) as may be seen in the below design.

As such, we transferred two River Trains into this Dry Zone where low water levels should only last until mid-August after which it may be too low, or we would have reached our fishing pressure limit for this fishery. These low expected water levels are evidenced by Today’s and Last Week’s 10-Day Accumulated Rainfall Forecast being very low.

10-Day Accumulated Rainfall Forecasts are for the towns below marked in red which impact water levels in the South West Zone.
The accumulated rainfall over 2 inches means water levels may rise; between 1.5 and 2 inches means that water levels may drop slowly. On the other hand, rainfall between 1.5 and 1.0 inches means that levels will drop rapidly. Since the actual average of Today’s and Last Week’s 10-Day Accumulated Rainfall is less than two inches, we expect water levels to fall.

Today’s 10-Day Accumulated Rainfall Forecast is as follows:

  • Manicore: 0.31 inches (marked as “1” in the 3 Month Rain Forecast Map)
  • Novo Aripuana: 0.41 inches (idem “2”)
  • Autazes: 0.58 inches (idem “3”)
  • Borba: 0.46 inches (idem “4”)
  • Humaita: 0.04 inches (idem “5”) 

Last Week’s 10-Day Accumulated Rainfall Forecast was as follows: 

  • Manicore: 0.51 inches (marked as “1” in the 3 Month Rain Forecast Map)
  • Novo Aripuana: 0.51 inches (idem “2”)
  • Autazes: 0.51 inches (idem “3”)
  • Borba: 0.65 inches (idem “4”)
  • Humaita: 0.22 inches (idem “5”)
