TDF Fishing Report for La Villa de Maria Behety and Estancia Maria Behety Lodge 16th to 23rd February 2019
Another great week on the Rio Grande has ended. Fishing was jolly good with an amazing number of bigger fish landed. At Maria Behety Lodge a mixed team from the United States, United kingdom and Denmark caught 165 fish with 54 over 15 pounds and a staggering 9 over 20 pounds. At La Villa de Maria Behety the 6 rods caught 82 fish with 25 over 15 pounds and 4 over 20 pounds. The upper river is getting better but most of the fish are in the middle river.
The 30c heat of last week had vanished and we were left with ‘normal’ conditions. Standard 25mph winds but we had two days where it blew at up to 75mph which made for interesting casting. The week was very good however, six anglers landed 116 fish and 32 were book fish.

Week 5 saw a great team of experienced anglers having very good fishing. The weather was kind and temperatures topped 30 degrees Celsius meaning the fish got very active. The latter 3 days of the week the temperature dropped out but fishing remained brisk. At La Villa the 5 rods landed 121 fish with 35 fish over 15 pounds. The biggest being 25 pounds to Gareth J. Up at Estancia Maria Behety the 10 rods landed 151 fish with 42 over 15 pounds. The biggest being a 23.5 pound fish for Mike P. Many fisherman landed more than 20 fish for their week and Brad W landed 34 fish.
A week of two parts with good clear water up until Tuesday and dirty higher water from the Rio Menendez after. Despite the tough conditions mid week the team managed to land a very respectable 84 fish.
