Jan 20 – 31, 2014
Fishing over the course of the last fifteen days remains excellent at Pira Lodge. We’ve experienced a couple of large storms and since they departed it’s been calm and peaceful across the Ibera Marshlands.
Fishing efforts have been focused on the Corrientes River, using sinking-tip lines in the 250- to 300-grain range. The water is deep here, and we’re casting toward the opposite bank, letting flies sink, and catching larger-than-average dorado on a controlled swing. The marsh has been less productive, but we’re still enticing several surface-oriented dorado using dry lines and lighter rigs in skinny water.
The John Fisher party of six recently experienced the best fishing to date, landing a whopping 48 dorado! Meantime, our guide staff has been busy exploring new areas that we’re excited to share with returning clients. Hopes remain high for the rest of the season as we anxiously anticipate more happy faces at the end of the day.
TOTAL DORADOS CAUGHT FROM 18/1- to 31/1: 192
