Pirarucu Lodge Fishing Report – 10th to 15th October 2021

As we finish week 4 at Pirarucu Lodge, the week once again has offered the lucky anglers stunning sunny days. Over the 5 days on the water the guests managed to land themselves 24 Arapaima on the fly, with the biggest coming in at 215cm.

Pirarucu Lodge 10/10/2021

Water Conditions:
Water Level – Dropping
Water Temperature – 27°C

Weather Conditions:
Temperature – 34°C
All beautiful sunny days.

Fishing Conditions:
The water is still dropping and the fish are hungry for our friends Diane, Jerry and Xavi, who came back to fish with us this week.

The highlight:
Diane holds the lodge record and perhaps the women’s world record for Arapaima on a fly rod. Her husband Jerry, who is also a great angler, came prepared and caught an even bigger fish than his wife! The main debate now is who the real Arapaima master is, and it can only be settled by another trip back to the lodge!

The boys from Seattle also did an amazing job this week, and our new friend Will watched a monster break his line.

Aruanâ: 77 
Tambaquis: 08

Biggest fish landed in the week
