To understand the marked advantages of our program fly fishing for Dorado lodging at a moving Mother Ship rather than at a static lodge, you need to understand the geography of the amazing Paraná River.
The Paraná River is born in the south of Brazil and, on its way south, as it enters Argentina it receives water from several smaller rivers and tributaries, and as it enters the provinces of Entre Ríos and Santa Fe, forms one of the largest deltas in the world, as the famous Uruguay river joins in, finishing at La Plata River near the city of Buenos Aires, before going into the Atlantic Ocean.
This large river system is the second biggest in South America, after the Amazon, with a total length of over 1500 miles, with hundreds of tributaries, deltas, marshlands, lagoons, side channels, full of fantastic flora and fauna, providing the most exciting adventure in this unique part of Argentina.
Each day you will be fishing new waters, working different locations in its various forms, like runs, inlet/outlets of lagoons, small side channels, tributaries bringing bait fish, and on and on.
Golden Dorado are extraordinary hunters. They are always in search of an easy prey that happens to go by their holding spot (even a smaller Dorado!). They like moving water, and most times stalk close to river structure.
Fishing is done from brand new boats, specially designed for fly fishing, with two casting platforms that allow comfortable casting and fishing of two anglers at the same time, with remote operated electrical engine done by the guide.
Besides targeting Golden Dorado, there is also the added bonus of fishing other exciting fish too like Pacu, Pira Pita, Tararira, Surubi, Chafalote, and other freshwater species, which provide fantastic sport.
