Rio Marie Lodge Fishing Report 7th December 2023 

Weather: We had another mixed sunny week with some rainy days.

Temperatures between: 28ºC and 39ºC

River Conditions: Water is in great conditions of level and temperature. Level rose a bit by the end of the week.

Fishing Summary: The rising waters made the fish a little slower. Still, the anglers had lots of opportunities of hooking nice fish everyday as they started to concentrate once again at the lagoon spots that were dry for most part of the season.

Fishing stats:

Group: 8 anglers

Peacock Bass Caught: 226

Temensis Over 10lbs: 11

Temensis Over 15lbs: 7

Temensis Over 20lbs: 1

Temensis Over 80cm length: 6
