Dear peacock fans…
A week among friends, those were the days until Christmas. The river started rising and now has a level that is quiete high, well above the normal for this time of year.
But on Wednesday it started to drop, and even if the fishing quality had suffered a little in the number of fish captured,did not affect much the size.
Bruce Stuhlfauth had a Great Week, reasonable numbers he had more than 20 fish a day, and at least 5 fish over 10 lbs every fishing day, with 16 lbs his biggest.
Only the Água Boa River can offer this quality even in adverse conditions.
With the river dropping trend is that fishing only gets better, and that visibility improves every day,so that our fishermen friends can experience the famous sight fishing that our river offers, and captivates fishermen from the four corners of the world.
Jackson Wanderer, is maybe the teenager that has landed the most peacock bass on a fly rod in the world he has been coming down for two weeks a year since he was 8 years old, and is now 16 years old.
This week he hit his personal record that was previously 15 lbs, and is now 15.5 lbs.
He has one more fishing week to overcome this record, and I do not doubt that he may do so, since he is a determined fisherman who never gives up.
The temperature has been below normal,and the clouds have covered the sky on most days. And if on the one hand it is more comfortable for fishermen, it hurts a little the visibility at the time of fishing.
We hope the river continues to drop, and that conditions continue to improve every day, but this season it has been especially difficult to predict the weather.
Nature is sovereign…

Anxious to hear more about water levels as my trip approaches.
