Kendjam Fishing Report, Week 4 – June 30 to July 7

Week four at Kendjam greeted us with pristine, clean waters, offering our guests the perfect canvas for an unforgettable fishing adventure. We hosted good friends, three couples and one grandchild and his grandfather. Mother-daughter duo Rosa and Aline stole the spotlight with their impressive double red tail catches, showing the fun of fishing together. Our loyal friend Breno landed plenty of magnificent fish, but his wife Caca outshone him with her astounding peacock bass – it seems she holds the crown for another year!

We had a lovely week hosting a family who had taken the lodge on an exclusive basis. The family enjoyed a variety of activities including swimming, BBQs, bird watching, hiking and, of course, fishing. A lively party with the native community added to the unforgettable experience. We spotted another beautiful jaguar which was one of the highlights of a great week. The weather was sunny with the river slightly green and low for this time of year.

Kendjam Fishing Report, Week 2 – June 16 to 23

The second week proved challenging. The full moon caused the peacock bass to be less active, and with the water levels dropping rapidly, fish were constantly relocating. Both guides and anglers had to exert extra effort to secure some impressive catches. Fortunately, our exceptional team of guides rose to the challenge, delivering a fantastic week of fishing. The highlight of the week was the remarkable number of wolf fish caught, featuring acrobatic strikes and epic battles that thrilled our anglers.

Kendjam Fishing Report, Week 1 – June 9 to 16

The ninth Kendjam fishing season kicked off with a group of seasoned female anglers who have been fishing together for over 24 years. Despite the water level being a little below average for this time of year, the fish were active and hungry. This week’s highlight was an incredible sighting of a black jaguar by the river (unfortunately no photos were captured). Generally, the size of the matrinxas and peacock bass continues to impress, improving year on year.
