Agua Boa Amazon Lodge

Agua Boa Amazon is a fly-fishing-only lodge. The large number of peacock bass make this trip mind-boggling. The Lodge is situated on a high bank, overlooking the Agua Boa River, which is one of the 1,000 plus tributaries feeding the mighty Amazon River. The Lodge is only accessible by plane and is 200 miles northwest of Manaus, Brazil.


Fly Fishing Agua Boa River

Agua Boa Amazon Lodge

From its source to the Rio Branco, the Agua Boa is approximately 150 miles long. Many lagoons and oxbow lakes, varying in size from two to 25 acres, are located along the Agua Boa.
When the water is slightly higher, the Lodge's guides will pole the boat through the shallow creeks that lead off of the main river into the connecting lakes. When the waters are lower, a walk of no more than a quarter of a mile may be required to reach the fishing. Due to the unusual clarity of the many lakes and lagoons, this is the best fly fishing trip for peacock bass. Land 20 to 50+ peacock bass per day - some will be huge. The giant reserve area boasts birds, wildlife, very few people, no mosquitoes. Guided two anglers per boat. Very experienced guides who paddle and pole boats. Additional boats are kept on 12 or more lakes, a short hike away.
The fleet of 20-foot aluminum skiffs with poling platforms and new fishing support rails are ideally suited for fishing the Agua Boa River, its tributaries, and lagoons. All boats have the option of using a conventional two-stroke Mercury motor, or a four-stroke Yamaha jet motor. The jet motors prove invaluable for those low water sightcasting opportunities. Each of the boats has a GPS SPOT device in case of an emergency the guides can have contact with the Lodge. Two anglers per boat and guide.
If you desire to tie your own flies, ask Guy Schoenborn to send you fly samples.
