Golden Dorado River Cruiser

Luxury Golden Dorado fly-fishing Mothership on the Lower Paraná River, Argentina

The Golden Dorado River Cruiser is the only mothership fishing program in Argentina. Enjoy first-class lodging in their fully re-fitted live aboard while accessing the most exclusive fishing away from other boats and anglers. This incredible trip features all the elements for chasing hard fighting golden dorado, as well as other fantastic game fish in the upper delta of the Paraná River. This river is the second largest in South America with a total length of over 1,500 miles. With hundreds of tributaries, deltas, marshlands, lagoons, and side channels, fishing opportunities are endless.

Fishing

Target species are golden dorado along with pacu, pira pita, tararira, and other species. Fish from newly designed fly fishing boats with two casting platforms front and back. There is ample casting room for two anglers. Boats have trolling motors operated by the guide for stealth approaches.

Accommodation

Lodging is a mothership which features four double bedrooms with en-suite baths and A/C. Included in the package is a flat screen TV, phone and Internet. Their exclusive chef matches meals with fine Argentinean wines. The ship typically moves while you fish each day to a new location.

Gear

Powerful rods for turning big flies and handling hard fighting fish. 9/10 ft. rods and 8/9 weight warm water lines. For smaller species, we suggest 8/9 ft. rods for 6/7 weight warm lines. Large arbor reels, with 50/75 yards of backing and a smooth drag system and 30/40-pound test wire shock leaders.

Trip Specifics

Guests fly commercially to Buenos Aires or Rosario, AR. From Buenos Aires, the Marina is only 2.5 hours away or 45 min. from Rosario. Take a water taxi to the ship from there.
