This trip is for the angler who’s done it all. The Rio Travessão, isolated by impassable waterfalls and inside a protected Indian reservation is the Amazon’s most outstanding variety fishery. We have the great privilege of operating our fishing lodge within its protected, exclusive waters. Join us on the ultimate Amazon fishing adventure.
The Travessão's isolated habitats hold a true potpourri of Amazon species. Big, ugly wolfish to 35 lbs, bicuda to 3 feet long, hieroglyphic patterned sorubim, pacu and the biggest black piranha we’ve ever seen haunt the narrow braids and creeks, while wider sections hold chunky peacock bass in rocky shallows and trophy payara in quick running tailraces. Deep holes harbor the Amazon’s most gigantic catfish, including 300+ lb. piraiba, huge jau, big redtails, jundira and more.
If you’re looking for extreme fishing excitement, join us on the wild and isolated Rio Travessão and become among the few outsiders to ever experience these eerily beautiful lands.
Our rustic, air-conditioned lodge provides a comfortable home base in this pristine wilderness. With private bathrooms and walk-in showers, anglers enjoy a spacious and well-organized domicile. With our staff's full-service commitment, you can concentrate on the exciting fishing, enjoy the great meals and just relax.
Where Navigation is not an Option - Acute Angling’s Picapau Lodge is the perfect answer. Where fast water, rapids and rocky braids deny access to house-boats and floating camps alike, only an operation like our land-based lodge can fulfill the purpose. A Cessna Caravan floatplane flies you over the obstacles and brings you there in total comfort and safety. Our mission, however, goes beyond simply getting there; We've designed and outfitted our lodge to meet the challenge of providing a surprisingly comfortable, civilized and secure base of operations from which our anglers can pursue the Amazon's rarest and most exotic fishes in otherwise totally inaccessible waters.
For those who want even more adventure — We’ve installed our portable safari-style tent camp one day’s fishing upriver from the lodge. Anglers wishing to take advantage of the full extent of this awesome fishery can opt to fish their way upriver and spend a night — or two — or three — and then fish their way back down.
Day 0 — International Travel
Depart U.S. via International flight. Arrive in Manaus in the late evening. After clearing customs, our transfer guide will meet you and bring you to our Manaus home base hotel, where you’ll overnight.
Day 1 — Transfer to Lodge
Board our chartered Cessna Caravan floatplane to the lodge in the early AM. Arrive before midday, relax and enjoy lunch and get your gear ready for an afternoon of fishing.
Day 2 through Day 7
Six full days of fishing. Your angling day begins with a 5:30 AM wake up call followed by breakfast at 6:00 AM. Your guide will be ready to depart at first light, although you can remain at the lodge at your leisure. Relax for an hour at lunchtime each day. Return to the lodge by dusk for appetizers, drinks and bragging, followed by a delicious dinner. Jungle hikes, spotlighting trips and village visits can be arranged.
Early morning, take the floatplane back to Manaus, arriving before noon. Relax in a dayroom at our Manaus home base hotel or arrange a city tour of Manaus. Depart Manaus via International flight around midnight.
NOTE - Trip dates and Itineraries may vary depending on air carriers schedules and availability.
