Weather and the Peacock Bass

Peacock Bass Country Weather Reports PBAWeather forecasting in the Amazon Basin is much more difficult than anyone would image. The 10-day forecasts appear to be similar day after day for the small towns along the rivers. But like anywhere, it can drop 3 inches of rain on one area and springle just 10 miles away. What's worst is that the fishing for peacock bass is very dependent on water levels and to some degree rain quanitities in specific watersheds. One great source is provided by the Peacock Bass Association which offers current Peacock Bass Country Weather Reports on their site.

The weather reports section includes the daily report and a 10-day forecast for 10 towns and cities in Peacock Bass Country. Check it out today and plan for tomorrow's trip to popular peacock bass fishing areas around the world.  Peacock Bass Association weather ReportsHere you'll find a Weather Report for Barcelos, Autazes Brazil, Puerto Ayacucho, Venezuela, and Miami, FL, plus many other popular peacock bass fishing areas around the world. 

Weather Patterns, Rain and the Impact

Ocassionally I hear, "The fall peacock bass season has begun with a faster-than-normal drawdown of waters in the southern Amazon." This is typical during years in which the El Nino climate pattern is dominant in the western Hemisphere, according to Scott Swanson, Managing Director of FishQuest. The trend appears to bode well for peacock bass anglers when this happens. Most camp/boat operators can then anticipate fishable levels through most of the season, with the occasional "hiccup" of quickly rising waters in some of the  tributaries.

El NinoWant to check out the rainfall over the last 30 days? … NASA's website has an excellent tool to review the amount of rainfall over the last 30 days at peacock bass destinations worldwide.  What is maybe more telling are their maps showing rainfall anomalies (amount of rain over/under average) over the last 30 days at all locations including the Amazon.Go to: http://trmm.gsfc.nasa.gov/trmm_rain/Events/thirty_day.html.

Weather is definitely something you should keep your eye on if you plan on a trip to Peacock Bass Country anywhere in the world.
