Amazon Trophy Peacock Bass Fishing


Peacock Bass Fishing in Brazil

Peacock Bass Fishing in Brazil


The Río Negro has its headwaters in Venezuela, in the flat western lands of the Amazon State. It's tributaries are full of world record Peacock Bass. These waters and other systems are where we catch one of the hardest fighting freshwater gamefish in the world...the Peacock Bass. In its long road southward, this river defines part of the frontier between Venezuela and Colombia. From there on, it enters Brazil and little by little takes course to the East, toward the city of Manaus, where it joins the Amazon River in its long journey to the Atlantic Ocean. The dark color of its water is notorious, especially when it contrasts with the light brown color of the Orinoco or the Amazon rivers. Its dark color is due to the presence of tannins. These are complex organic compounds, manufactured by the plants of the region and used to repel or warn off herbivores.

Headwaters Safari Camp

Each day, you will explore the pristine Rio Alegria and its numerous hidden lagoons, oxbow lakes and other plentiful fish-holding structures with your experienced guide. The Rio Alegria Headwaters Safari Camp is located 280 miles northwest of Manaus. Our headwaters camp was designed to provide first-class accommodation and privacy for those preferring more adventurous settings and closer contact with the Amazon rain forest. The locations we will take you to will offer the rare opportunity to fish pristine waters for trophy class peacock bass, far removed from the often crowded waters of the Rio Negro. This mobile, air-conditioned camp, one only accessible by float plane, will soon set the “gold standard” and define the true meaning of Amazon fishing adventure.   Headwaters Safari Camp »
