Here we are again at Far end Rivers lodge!!
A new season started in one of the most exciting rivers in Argentina. We will keep you posted with all the reports weekly.
W E E K 1 – JAN3rd – JAN10th, 2009
W E A T H E R C O N D I T I O N : Most of the days had rain followed by overcast weather. The air temperature rounded from 5 to 15 degrees Celsius.
R I V E R C O N D I T I O N S : The water level was normal on the first two days before the rain came. After the rain, the water level rose about 15 cm for a short time and then started to drop again at the end of the week.
F I S H I N G : The season started pretty well, the fish were running up the river and not stopping much in the main big pools. Most of the catches were in pools that had a lot of logs into the water, making the catches more difficult and resulting in a good quantity of fish being lost. All of the fish were bright and silver. Sinking tips were used this week, ranging from 2 to 5 inches per second. Mid sized and small flies were used.
Most of the fish were caught during daylight and we did not see a lot of fish moving at the end of the day.
The size of the fish landed ranged from 5 to 17 pounds.
T O T A L C A T C H E S : Six rods fishing 6 days caught 25 sea trout averaging 8 pounds and 1 of them 17 pounds, which was the biggest of the week.
EXTRAS : Robalo fishing was very successful during this week. A couple of hundred fish were caught, ranging from 3 to 9 pounds.
