Year Round: Estancia Cortaderas

The dorado have strong sharp teeth and a fantastic jaw line that they use as a hunting weapon. This great fish bears the name of dorado because of the gold color of its scales.  It is known as well as the Parana river tiger, due the extraordinary strength of its fight.  These fish are aggressive predators and jump high and fight hard.  They are outstanding on spinning tackle and they are spectacular on fly tackle.  Dorado are apex predators with a wide appetite, and with the right guide these are fish worthy of the pursuit. To hook a Dorado is an experience in and of itself which can hardly be adequately described by words.

Year Round: Estancia Cortaderas

The Golden Dorado is a highly prized game fish that hits like a Wahoo and is prone to acrobatic leaps and runs. You may use spinning rods but many guests enjoy the challenge of a fly rod for these “golden tigers.” Fishing is year round but the best months are September-April. Among the best kept secrets for serious freshwater anglers is certainly the golden Dorado or Salminus Maxillosus of Argentina. This freshwater rarity has been likened to Tarpon, Tuna and even Wahoo and is a must on the travel itinerary of any serious fisherman.  Acrobatic leaps accompany finger burning runs as the Dorado tries to escape its fate. The ritual provides a real challenge and quite a workout for the angler as these “Tigers of the river” demonstrate their strength and fierce temper.
