As noted in my two articles in the past issue of "The World of Peacock Bass" monthly eZine, El Nino is having quite an effect on the water levels in the state of Amazonas, Brazil. Over the past couple of weeks, the Rio Negro water levels have dropped extremely fast, according to sources in the Barcelos area. Forget about any "high water" problems in the next few weeks, but consider the opposite situations with shallow water perhaps?

I have heard from two guys in the Barcelos area that the Rio Negro is now very, very low and still dropping fast. One said it is now lower than it was at any time last season!!! One said that most all of the tributaries are too low to easily navigate (and easily fish). Another expects the great fishing to continue over the next few months.

We should be getting some reports on the fishing action in soon now that the season has kicked off. Let's hear from you guys.

Larry,
same case in the orinoco river basin. just returned from Bita and juriepe rivers in colombia. the water levels are dropping crazy fast this year. many river will be fishable 1 to 2 months earlier than normal. we had totally the opposite last year, high water way into the season.
