Freshwater Bolivia: Tsimane

September 2017

By mid month there were a couple of adventurous anglers who camped Secure headwaters, by Maniquicito creek. There was nice Pacu fishing between 11 and 22 lbs, many golden dorado over 15 lbs and nice yatoranas were seen. 3 Grand Slams were made, being the biggest size a 22 lbs Pacu and a 29 lbsgolden dorado.

Agua Negra
Nice and mostly stable weather with temperatures from 15 to 28 Cº, cool nights and foggy mornings. The fishing was mainly done in the upper and lower Secure bits, where the lack of rain left both bits pretty shallow and since they're suitable for wading all over, the fishing was done practically outside the cuambas. The fishing in Agua Negra was also good, with golden dorados of around 22 lbs.

Beautiful weather conditions and excellent visibility, and as spring comes along there are more animals and wildlife to enjoy all around. Great chances at well sized dorados and pacus in the middle and lower sections of the Pluma. In upper Itirizama all three species were fished despite de hinders of the fishing in crystal clear waters. Pacus and yatoranas came all in good sizes. Yet the biggest catch of the week took place in the lower Secure, many over 20 lbs.

The equipment used was 8 and 9 weight saltwater rods, floating lines, straight fluoro with 40 lb wire, classic synthetic flies, 3/0 and 4/0 saltwater barbless hooks.
