Larry: With the possibility of a change in Venezuela government, any chance the Casiquiare watershed will be opened for Americans? If so, believe I will have to get my peacock equipment dusted off for a trip! Cool

Heard memeber Dan Hanon last week had a great trip with low water conditions around the Negro and landed a 20lbs on a jig plus a really big redtail. More when he returns and posts a reports! :-)

Bob,

I would also like to fish there, but it doesn't look promising, even if Chavez dies. I guess it depends on his replacement. I understand FARC guerillas from Columbia also use that area, but don't know if they bother the local sport fisherman. I assume Venezuelan nationals and others are still fishing there.

If you are ever interested in a remove headwaters peacock trip, I have one planned with Ian. It's 10 days long and waaaaaay up a good river. The purpose is to locate 24-26 lb fish, and they are there. But will they play ball? Confused
Don't hold your breath

Bob,

I too understand that the area is unsafe due to many of the Colombia bad guys (FARC and lots of drug guerillas) moving over there. I think that Venezuela citizens are still allowed to go there, but it is so dangerous for them that few do. I have also heard from Colombian residents that live just over the border, that claim many of the fish in those Venezuelan rivers/lagoons are being cleaned out by the new (hopefully temporary) residents.

I was just reminiscing this past week about several great trips to the Pasiba and Pasimoni rivers in the Venezuelan Amazonas state with a fishing buddy that also held it in high regard. It is unfortunate that the area's glory days may be just fond memories for most of us.
