Since arriving at Pira Lodge mix-bag weather has kept us on our toes. When heavy rains raised the marsh by 3 feet the fish spread out and it was our job to find them. And so we did! The best fishing is still in Corrientes River, throwing large streamers on sinking lines.
Another productive technique has been “drift casting” from the boat, using floating lines. This gives marauding dorado plenty of opportunity to first spot and then smash the fly.
The larger dorado we’re catching average about 14 pounds and we’re seeing good numbers in the 10- to 12-pound range. All these fish are in prime condition and have attributed to many happy faces this season.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
