March 2–15, 2014
March in the Ibera Marshlands in typified by temperatures dropping, rising water levels, and fish becoming less aggressive. But fishing at Pira Lodge has been good through middle of the month, with a number of larger dorado brought to hand by guests.
For the past two weeks we’ve been targeting deeper water haunts in Corrientes River, using sinking-line techniques. This is not a numbers game. It is, however, an exercise in patience—with the reward being supersize dorado in the 10 to 15 pound+ range.
Our last group included repeat clients from the Jan Esway party. They knew the drill and all of them caught dorado weighing more than 10 pounds. Last season, exits to the marsh were blocked due to high water. This time around, anglers were able to explore and experience everything this amazing fishery has to offer.
Currently, we’re tracking a large storm that’s brought wet weather to the marsh. As it passes we’re expecting to see a return to the quality fishing that has made 2014 one of the best in recent memory. We look forward to seeing you soon!
