We have been given a great little report from just 2.5 days from the beginning of October and by the looks of the water levels and fish figures, things are becoming very good for the angler:

Dry-Zone II (see map above). Very good level – keeps descending – Great peacock bass fishing conditions. Anglers in Fly-In Floating Cabins I, II, III and V are fishing a total of 280 nautical miles of pristine fishing and, yet, we will only fish this zone until October 23rd in order not to overfish. Water levels started to descend at a greater rate and are tending to stabilize at a very low level in certain segments which could adversely affect the good fishing conditions. Forecast shows no significant rain episodes for the rest of the week.

Dry-Zone III (see map above). High levels – As forecasted last week water levels continue to be too high at the tributaries for peacock bass fishing, which is normal for this time of the season. However, water levels dropping quite rapidly in the main Negro channel. See chart for Barcelos below, where the blue line represents the actual level, the yellow line represents last year´s levels and the red line represents historical extreme levels. (These are channel readings which are not the precise water levels at tributaries)
