River Plate Anglers Signs Exclusive Fishing Agreement On The Famous Urubaxi (Jurubaxis) River On Brazil’s Upper Rio Negro!
Luis Brown, founder of River Plate Anglers, has recently signed an exclusive fishing agreement on one of Brazil’s most famous and productive Peacock Bass fishing rivers in the upper Rio Negro watershed. Located near Santa Isabel, the Jurubaxis has produced 2 IGFA World Record Peacock Bass and offers over 100 miles of fishable water on this famous black water tributary to the Rio Negro. River Plate’s famous floating, mobile Safari Camps will be accessed by a 2 ½ hour Cessna Caravan float &/or wheel flight capable of handling up to 8 anglers. Having been one of the favorite rivers to fish by the myriad of mother boats fishing the Santa Isabel area over the years, the Rio Jurubaxis will now be fished exclusively by River Plate Anglers floating Safari Camps. This agreement was signed by representatives of the Indigenous communities of Sao Francisco & Acariquara on the Rio Jurubaxis, the President of FOIRN (Federation of Rio Negro Indigenous Organizations) comprising 35,000 indigenous people in 750 communities, belonging to 23 ethnic groups making up 10% of the Indigenous population of Brazil and Luis Brown, the founder of River Plate. Witness to the signing included the Environment Secretariat of Santa Isabele do Rio Negro & the local Technical Coordinator. This agreement will allow River Plate to manage the fishing pressure on one of Brazil’s most famous trophy Peacock Bass tributaries to the Rio Negro and benefit the indigeneous peoples of the area in a number of ways including monetary rewards. River Plate continues to be a leading force in the Amazon’s Sport Fishing community in working with the Indigeous Indian Communities to benefit their people and manage their Peacock Bass fishing resources for future sustainability.
