Amazon Basin Fishing Report 8th September 2023

Week 8 of our 2023 season and we switched rivers. We moved our camp north to the Matupiri reserve in search of better waters, although the week started at a slow pace. Water levels weren’t at the right height when our group arrived, but the fishing got up the pace as the week progressed. Waters have receded at a very high rate which highly improved the group’s odds. We plan to stay at the Matupiri given the rate at which waters are lowering; we are hopeful that next week the river will produce great fishing opportunities.

Weather: Just like our previous weeks, there were no thunderstorms or cloud cover, clear skies only. Our South East Zone forecasts show nothing but sunny days.

Groups: 1

Anglers: 7

Peacock Bass Count: 477*

Biggest: 13lbs

Over 8lbs: 64
