Water level:
We had a 10 cm increase in water level but 2 days it dropped down fast to previous levels – very low.

The wind blew from the northwest as usual, but was not strong at all.
 
Air temperature Ranges:
10° - 22° Celsius (50° - 71° Fahrenheit) We experienced very good weather during the week, despite a little rain.
 
Weather Observations:
Storm clouds over the Andes, made the sunsets something special.
 
Fishing Conditions:

Flies that are working the best: Emb’s, Wonder Bugs, Aurelia Prince, Prince Nymph, and other rubber legged nymphs. Different sizes of sunray shadows also worked well. Big flies for the last hour of fishing – Leeches and big tube flies worked well.The Green Machine and small tubes were the best flies of the week.

Fly lines (tips, heads, lengths, densities, etc): Skagit heads with different lengths of T-14 and T-11, Scandi heads with polyl-leaders.
 
Floating lines were very good this last week, with heavy nymphs swung just under the water surface.
 
Length and strength of tippet and leaders:
7 to 12 feet, 12 to 15 pounds.
 
The most successful way of catching fish was swinging nymphs with a floating line, Green Machines swung on sinking lines, and using small plastic tubes swung with a floating line.

Most of the fish were in the lower and middle part of the river, although we started to hook and landed some fish in the upper beats.
