Rio Negro Lodge

Special Offers available

Barcelos and Santa Isabel do Rio Negro, Amazonas, Brazil are the worldwide capital of Freshwater Sport Fishing. Almost all IGFA world records for Tucunaré Açú came from Barcelos’ waters.


Come fish with us in great style in the enchanting waters of River Negro and its tributaries (mainly Demeni, Itú, Arirarrá, Paraná da Floresta and Bafuana), among other excellent fishing areas.


This region inside the Amazonian biome offers many attractions, not only with its specimens and the adrenaline involved in fishing, but also with the contemplation of gorgeous scenery, formed by untouched forests, huge flooded areas, white sand beaches and 1/3 of the world’s biodiversity. A truly unforgettable experience!

The Fishing


The Amazon River in South America is the largest river by discharge volume of water in the world, and by some definitions it is the longest. The headwaters of the Apurímac River on Nevado Mismi had been considered for nearly a century as the Amazon's most distant source, until a 2014 study found it to be the Cordillera Rumi Cruz at the headwaters of the Mantaro River in Peru. The Mantaro and Apurímac join, and with other tributaries form the Ucayali River, which in turn meets the Marañón River upstream of Iquitos, Peru, to form what countries other than Brazil consider to be the main stem of the Amazon. Brazilians call this section the Solimões River above its confluence with the Rio Negro to form what Brazilians call the Amazon at the Meeting of Waters at Manaus, the river's largest city.

At an average discharge of about 209,000 cubic metres per second (7,400,000 cu ft/s; 209,000,000 L/s; 55,000,000 USgal/s)—approximately 6,591 cubic kilometres per annum (1,581 cu mi/a), greater than the next seven largest independent rivers combined—the Amazon represents 20% of the global riverine discharge to the ocean. The Amazon basin is the largest drainage basin in the world, with an area of approximately 7,050,000 square kilometres (2,720,000 sq mi). The portion of the river's drainage basin in Brazil alone is larger than any other river's basin. The Amazon enters Brazil with only one-fifth of the flow it finally discharges into the Atlantic Ocean, yet already has a greater flow at this point than the discharge of any other river.
