This combination trip merges marsh fishing in the 3-million-acre Ibera Marsh and Corrientes River system in Hell’s Bay skiffs with river fishing on the Upper Parana River from custom center console bay boats for hard-hitting golden dorado. Access these two diverse fisheries from two beautifully-appointed Nervous Waters Properties, each with unique architecture and both with exemplary service. Renowned dorado guides, pristine fisheries, regional menus by globally-trained Argentine chefs, fine wine, and attentive staff are the focal points of each destination.
Eight anglers will experience six and a half days of dorado fishing from two unique Lodges and on two diverse waterways in the sub-tropical northeastern corner of Argentina. Both Lodges are renowned for their comfortable elegance, culinary experience, and wine pairings as well as guides and gear.
Pira is an adobe Lodge with elegant comfort and a wraparound covered patio for amazing views. Suindá is an elevated riverfront jungle Lodge with majestic views of the river and Paraguay in the distance. Both offer shared accommodations for eight guests in air-conditioned bedrooms with en suite bath.
