Freshwater Bolivia: Tsimane

June 2018

SECURE: After days of heavy rains, the Secure River experienced higher water levels, milky colors, and cooler temperatures. Regardless, fishermen were able to find good water and plenty of fish to make for a great month. The three sport species were caught in one day; yatorana, pacu and dorado. Downstream section was impossible to fish due to the muddiness, so upper sections produced better fish especially in the camping.

PLUMA: Unpredictable weather but also some good fish. In the lower Secure a 25 pound dorado was hooked and many fish in the 12 pound range.
The main Pluma was good but technical as always, and after the rain the topwater patterns; mice, gurglers and Titanic sliders with great success. 15 and 18 pound species were the signature.
On the Itirizama river there were many opportunities to sight-fish and catch fish in the 10 pound rage and a couple of 16 pounders. The weather made the overnight camp impossible.

AGUA NEGRA: The weather conditions were good at the beginning, with days around 28º C and a bit cooler at night. The water was still a little bit off color due to the floods the weeks before, so the main Secure river was the best spot. Some anglers experienced the Agua Negra camp, catching really good dorado up to 22 pounds. Heavy rains increased the water levels but the alternative was to fish the tributaries with good results of beautiful 15 pound dorado.
Black mouse pattern was a hit, having lots of fun and bringing the fish to eat on the surface.
