Golden Dorado Fishing on the Parana River

Golden Dorado are native to South America and are notorious for being one of the most aggressive game fish. The Parana River, where Estancia Puerto Buey is located, has the largest, most abundant population of dorado in the world. Dorado have a massive skull and jaw structure which they use to hunt baitfish. These aggressive predators hit your fly with such force, you might think that you are stuck on a rock or a log. Once hooked, dorado are known to leap several feet out of the water as you fight to reel them in and avoid line burns. Dorado fishing is typically conducted from a motorized boat, along the banks of the main river or within the swamp water channels. Here, you can also fish for Pacu, Tararira and Surubi. This activity is offered year-round, with peak season from June through August.
