Rio Negro Blackwaters Peacock Bass Fishing Trip Information

This trip provides a great chance at a true trophy peacock in an intimate jungle setting. Our floating bungalows can take you to the most inaccessible headwaters regions, the hidden home of trophy peacock bass. October through March are the months when low water conditions in the Rio Negro's lagoon studded tributaries let us find optimal fishing conditions far away from the crowds. Drafting less than one foot with full aluminum hulls, these versatile units can make their way through just about anything.
