Fished last week in Brazil's Amazon on the Jufaris River northwest of Manaus. We flew directly into one of River Plate's Single-Occupancy Safari Camps on private Indian lands and had a great time. Water levels were a little higher than ideal, but considerably lower than the main River Negro. The Peacocks were spawning with fish transitioning from the non-spawning Paca coloration to their 3 Bar spawning colors.
Woodchoppers and Jumping Minnow worked the best for us during the week. It sure is nice to fly directly into your fishing area and be in prime waters the first afternoon of your trip rather than having to fly into Barcelos and then spend a day or two getting away from the highly pressured waters around town to get into descent fishing!
We still have a few spots available for the fall & winter, come experience our "Fly-In" fishing trips, fishing private Indian lands with small groups of 6 - 8 anglers enjoying private cabins with queen beds plus upscale dining.
FISH WITH THE BEST AWAY FROM THE REST!
