HOWLER MONKEY LODGE
The Howler Monkey Lodge is located way up on the Rio Guariba, a tributary of the Rio Aripuanã..
This eco-friendly and very comfortable jungle lodge provides accommodation for just SIX ANGLERS right on the Rio Guariba with great jungle fishing opportunities and your chance to catch a large amount of different Amazon species.
Excellent lure fishing can be had here with Cichla pinima ‘Yellow’ Peacock Bass, Arowana/Monkey Fish, Bicuda, big Piranha, Matrinxá, Jatuarana, Payara/Vampire Fish, Pacu and much more ….
Fly fishing is also a wonderful way to search out many species with amazing results. Most of the faster-water species like Bicuda and Payara will rip line off your reel at a blistering pace and stripping gloves must be worn to avoid cuts and burns. Peacock Bass congregating around the rocky islands and banks of the river will attack flies with abandon.
As well as a killer method for catching Payaras also known as ‘Vampire Fish’, cut bait and live bait fishing can be very productive in these two rivers for many species of Cats. Spotted Piranambú, Barbado, Redtails, Jau, three species of Surubim/Shovel-nose Cats, the Piraiba/Freshwater Shark and other interesting monsters of the deep!
Comfortable all-new, family-run rustic jungle lodge right on the river with great jungle fishing opportunities. Full AC in all rooms and hot and cold running showers and en-suite bathrooms for each cabin.
