The Unique 'Ecolodge Da Barra' Amazon Floating Lodge Fishing Trip
The ECOLODGE DA BARRA was founded by a group of hard-core lure and fly anglers who joined forces to provide adventure-seeking anglers with the best infrastructure for fishing in South America.Apart from being the only floating Lodge in Brazil, it also provides the most modern and up-to-date comfortable, intelligent and ecologically-minded approach to sport fishing.
The ECOLODGE DA BARRA is located where the Rio Tapajós is formed, at the confluence of the Rio Teles Pires and Juruena, presenting an enormous area to fish for over 20 species of sport fish.
This fantastic floating Hotel/Lodge gets our No1 thumbs up for the angler who wants complete comfort and pampering while able to catch a bundle of big fish in Brazil. We would classify this amazing floating hotel and fishing trip as our top five-star destination.
All fishing boats are fitted with two fishing seats, front deck, 4 stroke 40 HP outboards, trolling motor, all necessary fuel, and an assortment of local Brazilian flies lures should anglers like to use something other than what’s in their box!
All guides are native to the area, fully trained and will do their upmost to make sure anglers catch as many fish as possible, to take some great memories back home.
There are 16 luxury apartments sleeping 24 anglers at any time. All are spacious, air conditioned and have a veranda overlooking the river and at 2.7m above the waterline. Each en-suite bathroom has hot water and pressurized showers for that intense massage at the end of a hard day’s fishing!
The deluxe climatised restaurant provides our guests with breakfast, lunch and dinner with traditional and regional menus and cuisine. The ‘open’ bar is nearby and serves snacks, selected wines, spirits, hot and cold drinks and cocktails, all included. There is ample room with a walk-around Veranda.
The Hotel also has Cable TV with more than 200 channels, Radio, Internet connection with WiFi covering the whole of the Hotel, 30 cameras for security (filming & recording 24 hours), Voipe and Satellite Telephones. Laundry is made daily and sheets and pillowcases will also be changed daily.
There is also a tackle store at the hotel providing hooks, rods, reels, lines and even fishing clothes should any luggage be lost by airlines etc.
The Hotel also lends tackle to guests without any cost. Note that this needs to be ordered well beforehand.
This is a year-round destination, although the very best time for fly fishing is from May to October when the water visibility makes the fishing with bright streamer flies and poppers fantastic, particularly for the peacock bass. If you prefer to go for the catfish with baits, April-July and October-December are the key times.
In this particularly productive and varied watershed, there is a huge diversity of species to be caught. With over 150 lakes and lagoons, three main rivers and many other tributaries, this is a huge fishing area.
Lure fishing provides great top water and subsurface action with big Cichla pinima Peacock Bass, Arowana, Bicuda and other species using surface Prop baits, poppers and stick baits/Spooks in the many lagoons and lakes, against the submerged trees and tree stands, off points and sand bars, along the banks and all over the river system and tributaries.
Excellent subsurface action can also be had using minnow baits, bucktail jigs with extended tails and other lures also for big Cichla pinima Peacock Bass, Payara/Vampire fish, Arowana, Bicuda and other species
Fly fishing at this destination is the very best that we have ever experienced at any lodge and anglers can target huge Peacock Bass, Payara, Arowana, Bicuda and may other species with amazing results in the lakes, river, rapids and tributaries.
A particularly favourite method is sight casting from the many beaches and sand bars. Most of the faster species found in or near rapids and fast water, like Bicuda and Payara, (there are even Peacock Bass behind the rocks in the fast water) will rip line off your reel at a blistering pace and stripping gloves should be worn to avoid cuts and burns.
There are plenty of Catfish species to target, including two species of Surubim/Shovelnose, Barbado, Jundia/Leopard, Dourada, Jau, Redtails, Piranambu, Piraiba and more (these are best targeted from November – June).
