Wild on The Fly is at it again with some great insight as to not only catching these Golden's but also showcasing what makes these such an impressive fish to chase. From Ibera, to La Zona, to Bolivia, WOTF honestly believe's that the Dorado Lodge in northern Argentina is the best all-around destination for catching these amazing predators to check out.
Here's why they think they have it great: 1) easy access from Buenos Aires, 2) much safer and most stable area politically 2) less expensive (even the helicopter weeks), 3) comfortable and modern accommodations, 4) more fishable water with less impact, 5) opportunity for both numbers and size, 6) beautiful scenery in a wild jungle environment adjacent to a National Park, yet still accessible to Salta, one of the hippest towns in Argentina. Dorado Lodge features private leases on two incredible tributary rivers and special access to -- and exclusive knowledge about -- the Rio Juramento, the only raft-supported river float for trophy dorado.
Going after Golden Dorado's is something I've always wanted to do and am still planning to do hopefully the next few years. I came close a few years ago when I was in Argentina but there wasn't enough time to do it. Talking with Nicole Darland and Dave Whitlock recently at a Fly Fishing show got me excited again thinking of getting back that way and their tales of taming these beasts.
