Most operators are reporting fairly high water levels on the entire watershed, but the weather picture doesn't look too bad. Checking out the 10-day forecasts for Barcelos and Santa Isabel (upstream) is promissing. Barcelos shows highs in the upper 80s and a low around 70 each day with chance of rain at about 60% (which is fairly standard for this report throughout the dry season). But further upstream, the 10-day forecast shows very little rain in the Santa Isabel area which should mean dropping (improving) water levels.

As most of you know, you can get the current weather and the 10-day forecasts for several peacock bass towns on our website at http://www.peacockbassassociation.com/html/weather.html

Several anglers are planning their annual trips over the next two or three months and we wish all low waters and good weather!

Things might be turning around

I talked with 4 different operators in the past day or two that are hopeful that fishing in the Rio Negro Basin has turned around. All say that some waters are dropping and that the fishing last week was markedly better than the fishing a few weeks ago (which was very bad). Production levels are 3 to 5 times as many caught and several giants (teeners and 20#ers) have been taken. All operators qualify their optimism with "as long as it doesn't rain much" and state "the weeks ahead may be very fishable with good results". We'll keep our fingers crossed!

I talked with Milton Cardille, Itapara Lodge, this morning Jan 28th. Milton says the waters are dropping but are still much too high for good fishing. :cry: He is hoping-praying that the waters drop so he can have a season in Feb and March.
Good fishing, Bob Daly
