The river area is huge, encompassing nearly a vast amount of virgin waters, boasting a healthy population of giant Peacock Bass. For anglers, this translates into very real opportunities to consistently hook and release much larger-than-average Peacock Bass on the fly.
Rio Marié is proven to hold the most remarkable average size of all peacock bass fisheries currently known to the angling world. The features that set this river system apart from all others are its remoteness, the natural characteristics of the river, its intact and perfectly functioning ecosystem, and the level of protection inside a designated Indian Territory that is almost totally un-impacted by modern man.
There are more than 15 described species of Peacock Bass, (Cichla genus) in South America, and these family of fish has a very complex reproductive cycle and their feeding adaptive behavior are remarkable when compared with other species. The Cichla Temensis is the largest peacock bass specie and can reach up to 35 pounds in upper Rio Negro.
