Fish Golden Dorado in Argentina with Expert Fly Fishing Guides from The Blue Quill Angler
Join the Blue Quill Angler for an unforgettable fly fishing trip this October as they team up with Andes Drifters and Parana on the Fly, to offer an incredible Golden Dorado trip in northeast Argentina.
Stay at a traditional “estancia” style lodge in the Corrientes Province in Northeast Argentina. The main house at the lodge has four, fully air conditioned, double occupancy bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. There’s also a large living room, dining area, a fully stocked bar and a fly-tying table. The local chef will delight you with traditional meals from the area matched with the finest Argentinean wines.
You will be spending 7 nights and 6 and a half days chasing Pacu, Pira Pita, and Golden Dorado pushing 30 pounds! Unlike most Golden Dorado waters, you will be fly fishing the Upper Parana river, which is a tailwater that remains a stable and reliable fishery.
Pacu are related to piranha and have squarer, straighter teeth, which are similar to human teeth in appearance and shape. Pacu are much larger than their piranha cousins growing to 3.5 feet and over 80lbs.
Pira Pita is smaller than the Pacu and most often well under 15lbs. Similar in behavior to trout but boasting a completely different appearance.
Golden Dorado, also called Devil’s Gold, have been called “tropical trout” and “fly fishing’s pound-for-pound toughest fish.”1 Golden Dorado are most often caught while fly fishing by sight casting yielding explosive results.
