JAN2nd  – JAN9th, 2010

O V E R A L L   C O N D I T I O N S : We were fortunate to arrive when the water already dropped its level. The water was very high and muddy most of December.  The air temperature rounded from 5 to 15 degrees celcius. No rain.

R I V E R   C O N D I T I O N S :  Water level was very good during the whole week, dropping only a few centimeters a day.

F I S H I N G : The season started pretty well. The first day of fishing was right after the highest ties of January were over (full moon). There were lots of fresh and fat fish coming into the river during the high tie. Most of the catches were in pools that had a lot of logs in the water,  resulting in a good quantity of fish being lost. All of the fish were bright, silver and ready to make your drag burnt.

Sinking tips and floating lines were used this week, ranging from 2 to 5 inches per second. Mid sized and small flies were used, such as wonder bug.

More of half of the fish caught this week was after the sun was already down the mountains.

The size of the fish landed ranged from 5 to 22 pounds.

T O T A L  C A T C H E S : Three rods fishing 6 days caught 29 sea trout averaging 11 pounds and 1 of them 22 pounds, which was the biggest of the week.

E X T R A S : Robalo fishing was very successful during this week. A couple of hundred fish were caught, ranging from 3 to 9 pounds.
