Fishing in Pacaya Samiria
05 days / 04 nights

The city of Iquitos, capital of the department of Loreto, is located on the shores of the Amazon River, the longest and widest river with the greatest volume of water in the world. Even though it is the largestcity in the Peruvian jungle, there are no westward roads joining it to the coast or the Andes; it can only be reached by air or by river.

Seasonal Implications

Low water season starts at the middle of July and ends early November.

Size, Number and Species Overview

The majority of fish that we caught in this area appeared to have some of the characteristics of a butterfly peacock (Cichla Ocellaris) such as no black splotches on the cheeks, and some of a Royal Peacock (Cichla Intermedia) such as irregular splotches of black connecting in some cases the three vertical bars on each side. All of the peacock exhibited more orange along their underside and lower fins than other peacocks.

Largest fish don't go over 10 pounds, but great numbers. Many "incidental species" like Piranhas, Catfish, Oscar, etc.
