Feb 24th - Oct 31


Surface Fishing
Excellent results can be achieved with artificial bates, specially for catching Cachorras, Bicudas, Matrinchãs, Tucunarés, and Trairões. These fishes can be found in various parts of the river as well as in many of the nearby lakes.

Deep Fishing
For giant catfish fishing, specially Piraibas, Cacharas, Piraras and Jau, heavy ballast and various sizes of hooks are used. The bate used is live fish from the region. The most common live bate used is the Tuvira.

Barley Fishing
If arranged ahead of time, the river is baited with soy beans and corn. This prepares the desired spot in the river and attracts a good quantity of fish, mostly Pacus and Piaus.

The record was a catfish of 142 Kg, caught on 2/may/1999.
