Rio Marie Lodge Fishing Report 20th January 2023


We had mostly sunny days and one full day of rain in the middle of the week.

Temperatures between 27 ºC and 40 ºC

River Conditions: 

The river stayed at a perfect level for the beginning of the week, but due to the rain, started to slowly rise.

Fishing Summary: 

We received a group of mainly fathers and sons, most of whom were beginning anglers and came to enjoy everything our mothership has to offer. And of course, improve their fishing skills with some Peacock Bass.

Number of anglers: 12

Peacock Bass caught: 180
Temensis over 10lbs: 7
Temensis over 15lbs: 1
Temensis over 20lbs: 0

Highlight of the week:

Not everyone has the opportunity to learn how to fish in a prime global destination such as the Marié River. But this group of friends decided that it was the way to go, and came to check out our fishery. They had an immense enthusiasm for every fish they caught, celebrating each one and showing a true spirit for fishing. It is all about the experience, and these guys definitely understood and enjoyed it. And fishing can only get better with close relatives to enjoy it with. Thank you, guys!

See you next week!
