#1 Trophy Peacock Bass Fishery in the World!

PBATR_SA_BRA_Marie_277Float plane to The Untamed Amazon mothership positioned in the most productive areas of the 650 kilometer Marie Reserve. Fishing five diverse sections of the Upper Turi, Lower Turi, Upper Marie, headwaters of Marie, and Lower Marie.

The Rio Marie and its tributaries have been proven through studies by the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources to be the home of the largest peacock bass in the Amazon basin. These studies show that the Rio Marie  has double the population of big fish compared to other, previously studied rivers. The average size of peacock bass here is 10 plus pounds, with significant  numbers of fish over 15 pounds, and more fish over 20 pounds than anywhere else in the entire Amazon Negro Basin.  A serious angler is bound to hook large numbers of peacock bass averaging 10 plus pounds, with the opportunity to land 20-plus pound fish. This is a fishery where fly anglers can pursue and conquer the dream of obtaining a world record on the fly.

Accommodations and Fishing

These 21-foot center console boats are powered with 90 hp outboard motors, bow mount trolling motors, and casting decks fore and aft allowing both anglers to fish at the same time.
