Freshwater Fishing Guide for Largemouth Bass & Peacock Bass in South Fla

The Adventure

We operate in the river regions that start from the mouth of the Rio Branco river to the Santa Izabel do Rio Negro area, north of Barcelos , and we are in constant search of prime fishing spots in accordance with river conditions and time of year. You will come face to face with the most beautiful scenery to be experienced in the heart of the Amazon in dark, coca cola colored waters.


Kalua Rio Jurubaxi (Exclusive Fishing)


This river is parallel to the Rio Marié that today is considered the most viable area to beat a record. The Jurubaxi, because it is a reserve, has lakes still unexplored and with an average of larger fish. The foirn has these data but does not pass through the implementation of the inspection posts in order to avoid conflicts of interest.


In summary, the Jurubaxi has lakes with large specimens of tucunaré açu ( Peacock Bass) with dimensions of records. The fact that we have exclusivity and only our operation can access the whole river that has an average of 300 km of extension, increase that potential.
