The Fishing

The Amazon Awaits: A Paradise for Anglers

The Amazon beckons with an incredible diversity of fish, offering an unforgettable experience for both lure and fly fishing enthusiasts:

Lure Fishing Extravaganza:

  • Explosive Action: Target ferocious fighters like Cichla pinima Peacock Bass, huge Bicuda, and giant Piranha on lures, experiencing heart-pounding strikes and blistering runs. Matrinchá, Jatuarana, and Payara (Vampire Fish) will also test your skills. Even the mighty Pirapitinga (giant Pacu) can be tempted with the right lure or bait.

  • Expect the Unexpected: For fast-water species like Bicuda and Payara, strong gear are a must to handle their lightning-fast attacks that can rip line off your reel at an alarming pace.

  • Peacock Bass Paradise: Peacock Bass congregate around the rocky islands and banks, readily attacking lures and flies with fierce determination.

  • Semauma Falls Spectacle: An hour’s boat ride takes you to the breathtaking Semauma Falls, a hotspot for Payara action. These “sabre-toothed silver missiles” can be caught on flies, lures, or live/dead bait amidst the stunning landscape of boulders, rock gardens, waterfalls and cascading rapids.

Fly Fishing Nirvana:

  • Effortless Elegance: Fly fishing is a rewarding way to target many Amazonian species. Experience the grace and precision of this technique as you cast to a variety of fish.

Bait Fishing Bounty:

  • Monster Catfish: Cut bait and live bait become irresistible for a wide range of catfish species, including the Lince Cats, Flat Whiskered Cats, Leopard Cats, Surubim Cats, Redtail Cat, Jau Cat, and sometimes the legendary Piraiba (aka Freshwater Shark). These “monsters of the deep” will put up a fight you won’t forget.
