EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
The Amazon Roosevelt Lodge is located just upriver on the Rio Roosevelt where it flows into the Rio Aripuanã. It is constructed totally from sustainable timber and natural resources. There are eight private rooms that can sleep up to three anglers.
Easy to get to from the city of Manaus, the gateway to the mighty Amazon and its tributaries, in the State of Amazonas, this very comfortable lodge offers great meals, has friendly staff and top service, and being on the river itself, is really close to the action!
Excellent lure fishing can be had here with ‘Yellow’ Peacock Bass, Arowana/Monkey Fish, Bicuda, big Piranha, Matrinchá, Jatuarana, Payara/Vampire Fish, Pirapitinga /giant Pacu and more ....
Fly fishing is a wonderful way to search out many species with amazing results. Most of the fastwater species like Bicuda and Payara will rip line off your reel at a blistering pace and stripping gloves must be worn to avoid cuts and burns. Peacock Bass congregating around the rocky islands and banks of the river will attack flies with abandon.
We can also target the huge Pirarucú / Arapaima in the lake systems on cutbait or large lures and flies.
Day 1: TOUR STARTS: arrive in the Amazonian city of Manaus in Brazil, transfer to hotel and overnight.
Day 2: Early morning transfer to airport and fly to the town of Apuí. 4x4 transfer to the river and boat upriver to lodge (this option is for 2-6 anglers). Fish this afternoon after lunch. If the group consists of 8 - 10 anglers, we will fly them via private charter plane directly to the lodge’s airstrip.

In the Semauma Falls an hour’s boat ride above the lodge, the Payara action is spectacular and these big sabre-toothed silver missiles can be caught on flies, lures, or drifting live and dead baits. This incredibly beautiful area is studded with boulders and rock gardens with many braids, rapids and falls.
As well as a killer method for catching Payaras, cut bait and live bait fishing can be very productive in these two rivers for many species of Cats. Spotted Piranambú, Barbado, Redtails, Jau, three species of Surubim/Shovel-nose Cats, the Giant Piraiba/Freshwater Shark and other interesting monsters of the deep!
Anglers can also try for some huge Piraracú/Arapaima in one of the lakes on dead bait, large lures or flies, but these fish are shy and very difficult to catch here.
