Water Conditions

The water levels slowly dropped during the week, and water temperatures were about 25°C.

Weather Conditions

Temperature were approximately 31°C. We only had rain one evening, so we didn’t lose any fishing time.

Fishing Conditions

It was another great week of fishing — this time with a group of anglers from Seattle. We targeted arowana on the first day and landed well over 30-40 fish per boat by sight fishing the surface. And that was the beginning! We also landed our new record arapaima at Pirarucu — a monster that was 223cm. What a week!

Total number of fish landed during the week: 142

Biggest fish landed during the week:

Arapaima: 223cm
