Ultimate Fishing Simulator – Amazon River Guide (DLC)

This is a short guide listing locations and equipment / bait combos for catching each species from the Amazon River DLC.

Intro

Each section lists the range of sizes of hooks I used, baits, locations, and any extra notes. I hope this quick reference guide is useful in helping you find and catch everything lurking in the Amazon River. Thank you and enjoy!

Electric eel

  • Hook: 2 – 2/0
  • Bait: Leech, red worm
  • Location: Near 7

Notes: This was the hardest one for me to find. Caught four in a row once I found a group near 7, but didn’t find them anywhere else. Description says they prefer deep, shaded, muddy sections of rivers.

  • Feeder: Gingerbread – herbal 

Alligator gar

  • Hook: 3/0 – 12/0
  • Bait: Live Bait
  • Lure: DEEPX Ocean soft baits – twitch/straight (2-3). Wobbler – twitch/straight (2).
  • Location: 1 and take the boat a short distance straight ahead to a group of gar. 13 Boat to groups with large fish. You can see gar swimming near the surface. Most fish on radar around 10/0 are gar – they are everywhere .

Kumakuma

  • Hook: 1 – 12/0
  • Bait: Cutbait small, leech, live bait
  • Location: 6, 10 – take the boat to the right and to the first group with larger fish.
  • Feeder: smelly fish

Redtail catfish

  • Hook: 2/0 – 6/0
  • Bait: Natural egg, leech
  • Location: 12 

Arapaima

  • Hook: 11/0 – 12/0
  • Bait: Trolling with feeder rod, live bait, and bloody salmon.
  • Lure: DEEPX Ocean P4H – Twitching/Straight (2).
  • Location: Easiest location is between 13 and the edge of the map. Sometimes there are very large ones out there.

Notes: When fishing the 11/0 group closer to the middle of the map I switched the time to 21:30 – this made the water easier to see through. Look for their bright red backside. When I found them there were four near each other. They looped the same small area until I caught them. When fishing the 12/0 group near location 13 I had the time at 19:00 and successfully trolled and fished with soft bait.

Payara

  • Hook: 2 – 1
  • Bait: Live bait, leech
  • Location: 13 Go directly forward on boat to first group of fish.
