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 easy 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 bonus of fishing other exciting fish too like Pacu, Pira Pita, Tararira, Surubi, Chafalote, and other freshwater species, which provide fantastic sport.
Fishing is done with 8/9 weights (fast action rods are suggested), with floating and sink tip lines in different densities and sinking rates. Although regular lines can work fine, during the summer months, weather can be very hot and tropical, so lines that can turn a big fly are suggested.
Fishing for Pira Pita and Tararira is performed with 5/6 weights and floating lines.

WHEN TO COME
Regarding seasons, ours is a full year running program; I think that the best fishing, as well as fun to enjoy all that it has to offer, goes from September to April. Our summer months, especially January and February, tend to be hot, but also suitable for fishing.
I like a lot November/December, and March/April. They are warm months, but delightful weather, with excellent fishing conditions.
The one and only moving mothership fishing program in all Argentina in the huge upper delta of the Paraná River system, one of the biggest in the world, at a short distance from Buenos Aires City and Rosario City.
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.
To get to the Golden Dorado River Cruiser, a ground transfer and boat transfer is necessary and included.
Our ground transfer will pick you up from the Airport if the flight arrives (6 or 7 am) early in the morning or from the hotel you will be staying in. That transfer will take you to the Marina Azahares del Paraná (2 hours and a half from Bs. As.), and once you are there a boat transfer will take you to the mothership in an hour and a half approximately. That means you will be on the Cruiser at midday. When you leave the mothership, you will do it after breakfast, and you will be in Buenos Aires at noon approximately.
