Tsimane Fishing Report Week 5 2022

Pluma Lodge

This week we hosted ten anglers: Spike and Kerry in their second week around with us, Gregory, Jimbo, Did, Chad from Colorado and another four friends, Bob, Dave, Ken, and Stuart from Denver.

Weather conditions were 10/10 all over the week, and the same could be said for the water color, which remained gin clear. Seven fish over 20 lbs. were landed during the week, plus many smaller fish and one pacú in the last day, caught by Stuart. The upper sections are showing unbelievable clear water, meaning longer and lighter leaders were mandatory.  

The lower Pluma and lower Sècure were more focused on fish quality, as per usual. The main Pluma is showing a healthy population of 6 to 10-lb. dorado, which make for a lot of fun with smaller flies and terrestrials. 

We’re looking forward to the big dorado, and expect they will show up in the very productive deeper runs and pools of the Pluma.

Agua Negra Lodge

After some rain during the previous week, all the rivers have started clearing up. The weather was good during the whole week with a few cloudy days and very comfortable nights.

The fishing was very good, mostly in the lower and upper Agua Negra, where we had many chances for big dorados and some pacú. 

By the end of the week we’d landed 10 dorado over 15 lbs., two pacú on the main Sècure River, several yatorana, and two 20-Ib. dorado. 

Secure Lodge

On the seventh week of the season, four fishermen joined us at Sècure Lodge.

Overall, the week was tough, with cold water and low temperatures. When combined with the dirty water coming from the mountains, the conditions meant fish were not active until the last two days. Those days the fishermen went camping and found both dorado and pacú up in the head waters, and it was here where Paco Lorenzo caught a magnificent 22-lb. dorado and a very nice pacú.
