The Rio Grande, 8th to 15th February 2014

by Charlie White

At La Villa Maria Behety, the average weight of fish caught was 9.8lbs. Malcolm K was the top rod for the week, landing a total of 23 fish. 26 of the fish caught by the six rods in the lodge were over 15lbs and two were over 20lbs.

The weather was much warmer than previous weeks, with temperatures between 24°C (75.2° F) and 6°C (42.8°F). The river is clear and the water levels are dropping a bit every day, with temperatures between 15°C (59°F) and 6°C (42.8°F).

Many of the fish were caught on floating lines as the temperatures improved so the fish were taking on the surface.

At Estancia Maria Behety, the average weight of sea trout landed was 9.7lbs with 20 fish over 15lbs and 8 of them over the 20lb mark. The largest were two monster 24lbers. Our congratulations go to Andy B who was joint top rod for the week with an impressive 21 fish landed. There is still some availability left for this season.
