Are golden dorado hard to catch?

First, there’s two ways to fish for Dorado: Big and Slow or Small and Fast.

In Ibera wetlands in Argentina, water conditions are stable and predictable throughout the season therefore every month fishes equally well. However, the outside temperatures and humidity are something to consider when planning your visit.

The 8-weight, 9’4”, 4-piece fast action rod lets you cast heavier flies and also lessen arm fatigue. If possible, bring an additional 8 weight rod that can be strung up with a different line. Quality reels with working drags balance your rods and Reels should be loaded with 150 yards of 30 lb backing. 

How do I know what size fly rod I should get?

If your goal is simply to catch one large dorado quickly then we recommend using a 7 weight fly rod with 20 pound test line on it. 

Dorado are an amazing fish and can be caught in many different ways including top water. Here’s a great place to catch Dorado in Argentina. 

Just a few steps from the lodge, there are 90 hp outboards waiting to take you out on the water. Whether you’re fishing for Pacu or Pira Pita, these powerful vessels will put you in front of a trophy fish very quickly.
