Rio Marié, Brazil
Join Fly Water’s Kyle Kolodziejski at Rio Marié, the very first and biggest exclusive fly fishing area for Giant Peacock Bass in the entire Amazon basin!
Deep within the Brazilian rainforest near the border with Columbia lies one of the most remote and exciting peacock bass destinations in the world. Officially launching in 2015, Rio Marié has lived up to its claim of being the greatest trophy peacock bass destination the fly fishing world has ever seen. Anglers enjoy true luxury accommodations on a purpose-built mothership that moves about to unfished water each week. With over 400 miles of private water and seasoned English speaking Brazilian guides, this is the place to target well-rested double-digit monsters. Be one of the first to experience this wild region that the locals refer to as “Rio de Gigantes”.
Rio Marié is entirely located inside an extensive Indian territory, an area of more than 2 million hectares. This untouched environment has more than 400 miles of rivers, 180 known creeks, 60 lakes and three major tributaries inside the new operation area. It is the first exclusive fly fishing only project allowed and supported by the Brazilian government in conjunction with the Indian Association to create a sport fishing operation entirely within an Indian territory.
In this area of the Amazon, the fishing season normally runs from August to late December. This is the dry season for the upper Negro basin and the Marié is considered one of the more stable systems in the peacock bass world.
