I got a few water levels reports on the RN basin this week. Level was still high and water was falling nicely 2 weeks ago but rains the last 2 weeks have made the rivers go up. Fishing during the past 2 weeks was still acceptable but a little tough. One boat had 4 over 20#s one week and 7 the next, while another boat had 3 over 20#s on one of those weeks. I'm told lots of missed strikes on the giants and fishing fry balls was tough. Also heard that one outfitter had called off trips over next 2 weeks (at least) and that it is still raining down there this week.

Several of our members have first hand knowledge or second-hand info on levels, so please let us know what you know or have just heard. Thanks.

Hi Larry,
Levels are way up and we have cancelled all our November trips. The Negro is rising still, all the tributaries are way too high and receiving cold water and with all good intentions, we have postponed our clients to next year. Fishing in January, February and March is expected good with very low levels, but then again, who knows these days? :-)

For the most part, reports are that the Rio Negro and most tributaries are indeed flooded with lots of rain in mid-October. Four or five Amazon fishing tour outfitters have cancelled their early and mid-November trips to this region and asked clients ot re-schedule. One outfitter however is fishing waters on a Rio Negro tributary that are "little effected by the downpours", according to them.

Overall, the news is not good right now, so we will have to keep our fingers crossed for better weather and rapidly falling waters to "fishable" levels. Rains have subsided quite a bit, I have been told, but remember why they call it a Rainforest!

Good data comparing Negro and other watershed levels throughout the year. Scroll down to page 13. The graph at the upper right shows the Rio Negro water levels at Barcelos.

Just heard that the water levels in Barcelos are now low and fishing is great. The weather report on Barcelos suggests minimal rain in the next week. Best of luck to all that will be going down in the next month or two.

Hope you found the Barcelos water levels mentioned in our July eZine to your liking. Anyone having new reports in the coming weeks can post here on the forum.

Just heard that two outfitters now have called off some early trips to the Amazon - Southern Region due to high water not receding quick enough. Any other news that might be of interest to our readers?
