Tsimane 2021 Fishing Report – Week five


The fifth week of Agua Negra’s season was fantastic, with perfect weather, not many sunny days, and mild temperatures. The team hiked with guest Jim Minner and his three sons Peter, Paul, and Patrick, on the hunt for large Dorado and Pacu. In the beginning, we found some very nice feeding frenzies. At the upper section, the fishing was more technical, and we mostly targeted Dorado that was quietly placed behind rocks. The biggest fish of the week was a nice 30 pounds Dorado caught by Jim in a very nice riffle on the Upper Agua Negra.


The fourth week brought guests from Poland and from the United States. The week showcased the unique, different sides of the jungle, including visual contacts with jochi, tapir, honey badgers, and even a jaguar — the most iconic species of the Amazon Forest.
The fishing increased during the week, only getting better from the beginning and giving the best opportunities in the last two days on the classic fishing spots. Fishing held a high level through all the week in the upper sections; the headwaters gave us dorados of various sizes, including a 20 pounds fish caught in an amazing feeding frenzy situation in only 10 inches dept water. 


This week we received nine guests, five from the U.S. and three from Argentina. The weather was great throughout their stay, with a few overcast days in the beginning.
Fishing was stable all week with more than ten fish over 20 pounds landed, and plenty more over 10 pounds. We found the best fishing in the lower sections, where we used larger flies and intermediate lines. Three fish were sight fished in the upper areas. We also had a few opportunities of fishing to fish in a feeding frenzy in the Upper Itirizama, which was as low and clear as it gets.
