La Villa de Maria Behety Lodge Week 8 Report, 2020

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.

Water Conditions
Water colour and visibility: We experienced very clear water all week
Water temperature: 5° C and 9° C

Weather Conditions
Wind speed ranges through the week: It was very windy this week. 0 to 90 kmh and mostly blowing from the west.
Air temperature ranges through the week: 5°C to 15°C

Fishing Conditions
Flies that worked best: Flies of the week were EMB and sunray shadow again. Small sized nymphs like TDF prince, prince nymph, red tail. Also yuk bugs and woolly buggers were effective. Big flies for the last 30 minutes in the evening: Intruders, tube flies and articulated leeches. Floating tip or intermediate and sunray shadow worked very well. Big flies were only needed for the last hour and if there was colour in the water.
Fly lines (tips, heads, lengths, densities, etc) that are producing: We used everything between floating and 15 feet of T-20.
Length and strength of tippet and leaders: 4 to 15 feet. Fluorcarbon 12 to 18 pounds.
For lower water conditions and for some of the upriver pools we would recommend scandi heads and short polyleaders or versileaders.

Fish catch statistics
Number of anglers for the week: 8
Total number of fish landed for the week: 85
Weight of the biggest fish landed for the week: 19
Number of fish landed over 15 lbs: 14
