In Brazil, it is possible to find a great diversity of fresh water (rivers), mainly in the Amazon region, where the largest and most quantitative fluvial meshes in the world are concentrated. The Juma River is one of the calmest rivers for the practice of Sport Fishing. Located about 100 km southeast of the Amazon capital, Manaus. In the region you can catch fish such as Tucunaré, Aruanã, Piranha, among other fish in this region.
The practice of Sport Fishing is different from all other tourist activities, as it is an observation activity in the middle of nature, in search of fish species found only in that region. Sport fishing activities are practiced more in rivers than in the sea.
It is at the time of ebb that a natural phenomenon occurs where it is possible to improve the quality of fishing to catch fish. In this period, called the Amazonian summer, it is when rivers are at lower levels and their lakes are shallower. It is when the fish have already reproduced and are easier to be hooked, as they are closer to the surface and are easily attracted by the baits.
The Juma River is located in a Sustainable Development Reserve, the Ruma do Juma, of 589,611.28 hectares. Created on July 3, 2006, with the managing body being the State Secretariat for the Environment – Sema. Communities benefit greatly from the visit of tourists. RDS Juma has 476 families that live from the production of natural agricultural products.
The Juma Reserve is known to have no deforestation rates. Because of this, the Juma River is so important for the practice of sport fishing, as it is located in the middle of a highly preserved and conserved forest area.
