GOLDEN DORADO

Golden dorado - known as “the river tiger”, the dorado (salminus maxillosus) is the most exciting native game fish of South America. The fish is known for its unique beauty, ferocious fighting (often described as a prehistoric-looking salmon), explosive runs and tarpon-like acrobatics.  Though the fish has been famous among South American anglers for quite some time, very few outsiders had even heard of the Golden Dorado - let alone fished for them. Now they are on most fishermen’s bucket list.

Golden dorado feed on sábalo and other baitfish in the fertile marsh waters and regularly reach sizes in excess of 20 pounds. Guests will cast 8- to 10-weight rods from boats poled through the marsh, or on foot to sighted fish in the flowing waters of the Río Corriente.
