The Agua Boa River: Fly Fishing for colorful peacock bass

The Agua Boa River is the Amazon’s first and only fishery managed to require catch and release and single barbless hooks

The Agua Boa Amazon Lodge is the only lodge or settlement on the river and, together in cooperation with the Brazilian Institute for Protection of the Amazon, has helped place the Agua Boa into an area of permanent protection. The Agua Boa is one of the few areas of the Amazon that you should not see another inhabitant during your entire stay.

The Agua Boa River is a small clear water river flowing over white sand. The river begins high in the Mocidade mountains to its confluence with the Branco river. The river is absolutely spectacular. It is flanked by a combination of upland forest, flood forest and savannah with all of its wildlife still intact. This combination of pristine and varied habitats makes for both interesting and scenic fishing. It is common to see tapir, monkeys, manatee, river otters, parrots, toucans, macaws, anteater, sloths, peccary, agouti, and even the occasional jaguar.
