Kendjam Fishing Report 27th July 2022

Water Conditions:

a) Water Color – Clean

b) Water Level – Dropping at a slower rate

Weather Conditions:

a) Temperature – 29°C

b) We had a very hot week with all beautiful sunny days.

Fishing Conditions:
After a week of hard fishing with almost perfect water levels, the fish were wary of our flies. Most of the time, peacock bass will crash on a fly if they give you a follow, but this week, we had several follows and less commitments than usual. Our guests worked hard, and in the last two days of fishing, the fish became more aggressive.

We caught some huge Bicudas and Mantrinxã as a perfect backup plan when the Peacocks were not ready to eat. The highlight of the week was our potential new mantrinxã world record, caught by our own Rodrigo Salles. Congrats!

Total number of fish landed this week:213
