Man do we love Argentina, some of the best trout fishing on the planet for sure, but also home to the Golden Dorado!
We have fished throughout Northern Argentina from the extensive Iberá Marshlands way up North, with floating lines surface flies with lighter rods. Into the Corrientes system, bigger dirtier water with larger flies and sinking lines. The Upper Parana with its opportunity to catch 15-pound plus fish and the diversity of the wily Pria Pita on dries and Pacu on nut and fruit patterns. To the lower Parana’s vast braided system, cleverly accessed on a gorgeous luxury live-aboard to stay with the fish concentration.
Fishing is through the Southern Hemisphere Summer months, accessible from a short three-hour drive from central Buenos Aires to a lengthy flight way up North, we know what systems are producing when.
This experience is very reminiscent for hunting tigerish, two to a boat on the drift pitching flies into structure, back eddies and sandbar edges, takes are violently spectacular and fighting fish can send more time in the air than in the water! The bird life is spectacular as are the sunsets, especially with an icy cold Quilmes Lager in hand….!
