This week fishing was slow and conditions were unstable. The river rose, then it dropped, then it rose again and then finally it got dirty. This, unsurprisingly, made for tricky fishing. Sinking lines worked best, with small and medium sized flies. Green rubber legs were the best fly of the week. 52 fish were landed, 16 fish over 15 lbs, 3 fish over 20 lbs with an average weight of 9.5 lbs.

Week 9 at Estancia Maria Behety ended on a high. Fishing was tough but productive. Even with difficult river conditions we managed to catch 105 fish for the week. 19 over 15 lbs and 2 over 20 lbs. Top Rod was our very good friend Kevin B with 15 fish to the net. Irvin P landed the fish of the week: 23.5 lbs.
As week 8 comes to an end we reflect on a good week of fishing but it was not an easy week by any means. The water temperature dropped a few degrees from the week before and the wind blew up really hard for three of the days making casting very difficult. Despite tricky conditions we landed 85 fish with 14 of them over 15 lbs. John K was top rod with 19 fish to the net.
