Fishing Report- January 17th- 23rd, 2016Greetings Peacock Fans and welcome back to the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge Fishing Report. With another week in the books we have a lot to report from last week’s fishing. Joining us once again this year was an Energetic group of hardcore anglers from Reno Nevada, including singer and guitar player Evan Firstman. One can only guess how many songs and lyrics Evan knows, hundreds for sure, but he is always nice enough to provide the after dinner entertainment here at the Agua Boa! Speaking of entertainment, we love to celebrate special occasions here at the Lodge, our favorite being our guest’s birthdays. Last week was no different, enjoy a few shots of Clark Harrison celebrating his birthday with a bruiser Peacock Bass and then toasting the occasion with Evan and Doug Nelson.
As Reported last week, we have opened our new Agua Boa Links, an 18 hole golf course for our guest’s après fishing entertainment. It was no surprise that last week’s group from fair weathered Reno would have some excellent golfers. We would like to thank golf guru Dennis Damron for taking the time out of his busy fishing schedule to set a new course record at the Agua Boa Links. Check out a shot of Links champ Dennis with a nice Spotted Peacock Bass! The water flow remains unseasonably low on the Agua Boa River. As a result there has been a tremendous amount of sight fishing and an enhanced level of spookiness
throughout the fishery. As described in earlier reports we have had success downsizing flies and lengthening leaders in order to entice the wily peacocks. Last week veteran Agua Boa angler Jim Wright proved that this was quite true, when he spent a day beating up on the peacocks using a size 2 Matuka. Old school! Over the last month as the fishing has become more and more technical many of the anglers have overlooked the great top water fishery that we have here at the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge. Fortunately the guys from Reno brought the top water back into the fold and were quite successful bringing the aggressiveness out of the Peacock Bass. So if you are coming to visit remember to have a few poppers and Bangers in your box. Thank you for checking the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge Fishing Report and we look forward to seeing you soon! Fish On!
