ALTO RIO XINGU :
The Amerindian park of Alto Xingu is one of the largest in the world.
More than 6000 indigenous from 14 different tribes live there using only the nature resources that is offered to them (fishing, hunting and fruits and roots from their gardens or from the rain forest).
For several years we have started a collaboration with two communities in order to offer quality sport fishing packages.
The first village’s name is Morena, from the tribe Kamaiura and it is located just at the beginning of the Rio Xingu where three other Rios are joining: Batovi, Kulene et Ronuro .
The second village is located 40 minutes boat ride from there and its name is Arroyo, from the tribe Ikpeng directly on the banks of the Rio Xingu and within immediate access to several good lakes.
The fishing happens on both Rios and connected lakes by using large aluminium boats where 3 to 4 anglers can easily fish.
The guides are of course local natives and they know since their childhood where the big fish hide, their work is tremendous and you will always catch your dream fish with them.
This place is ideal for those who are seeking various Amazonian fish species rather than focus only on one like it is the case in most of the other destinations (peacock bass).
Using lures and flies you will catch big aïmaras (traïrao), trophy dogtooth fish (cachorras )and peacock bass of smaller size than in Rio Negro but very aggressive (tucunare) and even corvinas and bicudas. All this species can be find in numbers due to the fact that there is zero fishing pressure.
Fishing with baitfish allows the catch of huge Amazonian catfishes such as pirararas , piraïbas , jau , surubim, which grow up to 100 kg for the piraïbas and over 50 kg for the piraras!
Accommodation is done in individual and comfortable camping tent which are sheltered in a wide Amerindian traditional building just close to the village which allows a direct contact with the tribe and see how they live, theirs customs… In the main building you will find dry toilets and a shower system.
Meals are cooked daily by the local women, they consist mostly of fresh fish, chicken, rice and various types of local roots, vegetables and fruits.
Only 6 to 8 anglers are allowed to enter the reservation each week (we fish only two weeks per month) so it is a real privilege to come and fish this wild area.
This fishing expedition into the Alto Rio Xingu Amerindian reservation will be for sure an unforgettable lifetime experience.
