Tsimane Fishing Report Week 5 2024


The third week of the season began with a lot of activity, with catches around 13 and 15 pounds. We were also able to catch pacú with insect and fruit imitations. The river continues to have more water than usual, and we took advantage of the continuous arrival of sábalo, which makes the dorado very active, resulting in hunts in almost all areas of the rivers.

This week we had clients from South Africa and the United States.


This week Sécure Lodge hosted a group of five anglers from different parts of the world: Singapore, the Netherlands, and the USA were part of our week number four.

We began with cooler and higher water due to the rains of the last week. We fished the upper sections as the water conditions improved more quickly there—the dorado started moving near the shores, pushing us to fish shallow waters with floating lines. By midweek with temperatures more regular, fishing activity turned on and we found a good amount of fish in the main river as well as the tributaries.

With clear water conditions, both creeks and the camp were very active throughout the week, giving the anglers many opportunities with good sized dorado and pacú.

Maniquicito Creek gave us the biggest fish of the week, as we landed two 20-pounders in skinny riffles.

The lower section also started fishing well as a medium-sized migratory fish run moved up.

At the end of the week with the air temperature dropping due to a small cold front, the dorado kept moving around and even chasing sabalo in shallow waters, where we hooked up some big fish that won the battle this time.


The fifth week of the season gave us the chance to meet four great fishermen from the United States. Joe, Mike, Kurt, and O.C., who had already fished the previous week in another of our lodges and completed their adventure in the jungle with two camps in the Agua Negra.

The weather was somewhat unstable during the week with some rains and some cold days, but we were still able to spend two nights in our upper camp in the Agua Negra, where we were able to catch three big pacú, some medium-size dorado, and two nice yatorana.

The Chimoro River and the Secure also gave us good chances in the middle of the week, where we also landed two more pacú and several medium dorado as well as some small ones.
