River Conditions: Throughout the week water levels of the Xingu River rose slowly.

Fishing Conditions:
This week was more challenging than the previous weeks. Feeding frenzy moments were less common, except for the last day, when we found some good payara activity and caught a couple of good fish. It seemed that the payara started to become more active on our last day. It’s likely that the fish got acclimated to the higher water levels and started to feed again.
