As we come towards the end of the season at Rio Marie Lodge, the river is still producing the goods and throwing up some true specimens.
Weather: We had mostly sunny days and some rain on the other days.
Temperatures between: 25ºC and 40ºC
River Conditions: The water was still low at the beginning of the week but then rose quickly.
Fishing Conditions: As with the other weeks of January, we started fishing at the bottom section of our zone. We saw great results there, until the water, which was initially low, started to rise fast during the middle of the week.
Number of Anglers: 12
Peacock Bass Landed: 286
Peacock Bass Over 10lbs: 16
Peacock Bass Over 15lbs: 5

Highlight of the Week:
The Marié gave us lots of big fish this week, with countless shots. This proves that we still host the best fishery in the world to fly fish for giant peacock bass. As we grow, we are learning more about the fish in order to protect them, for generations to enjoy our big fish! Thanks for following us throughout our entire season, we can’t wait to see you join us next year. Until then.
