Golden Dorado River Cruiser, Argentina
The Golden Dorado River Cruiser is a new one of a kind dorado fishing program in Argentina. The focus is on fly fishing and spin fishing for dorado in the vast Parana River system and Río de la Plata wetland area which offers countless rivers, canals and lagoons teeming with dorados and other game fish. The area is largely untouched by sport fishermen.
Throughout the season the Golden Dorado Cruiser mother boat is strategically situated in areas where we will find the best fishing given the moment of the year. Every morning after breakfast guest will depart on speedy specially designed fishing boats to areas that have previously been explored by their guides often concentrating on the spot where clear waters mix with darker waters or underwater structure tends to concentrate the dorados-.
At times the fishing can be frenzied, the water boiling with dorados on the hunt and a single cast may draw multiple strikes, hookups and misses. At other times guests will enjoy a more paused and deliberate fishing experience as we probe the structures along the edge of the water in search of larger dorados that may range up to 7 or 8 kilos. One of the highlights for many fishermen is fishing for these agressive fish on poppers, watching them come up to engulf the flies with their teethy mouths and then explode into the air with wild acrobatics.
6 to 8 wieght rods with full floating or intermedate sink tropical lines.
Large saltwater style streamers imitating small fish in on strong very sharp hooks.
Fishermen are lodged in roomy double cabins with on suite bathrooms. THe boat can accomodate upp to 8 fishermen at a time in 4 double cabins. Guests can relax in a spacious lunge and dining area. Front and rear exterior terraces offer ideal viewing platforms for the incredible diversity of bird life and other wetlands wildlife.
Depending on the location of the boat, guests may fly into Buenos Aires or Corrientes where they will be received by the Golden Dorado River Cruiser Staff and transferred directly to the sport marina closest to the mother boat’s location for transfer there.
