Discover Fly Fishing for dorado in Argentina
Suindá Lodge is a dorado angler’s dream, strategically located near the town of Itatí, in the province of Corrientes. The region houses one of the most productive sections on the Upper Paraná River, a clear-water fishery that consistently produces good numbers of large dorado.
The secret of this part of the river lies in its structure: generally fast-flowing runs, coursing over beautiful rock gardens. Due to good water clarity, the Upper Paraná offers exceptional sight-fishing opportunities for dorado when the conditions are right. Although large dorado are the main focus of the fishing here, this is multi-species fishery where anglers can also target pacú and pirá pitá on dries. One spectacle seen during the season is the huge numbers of sabalo (baitfish) that congregate in massive schools along the edges of sandbanks. Watching large dorado bust up on these schools is an impressive sight. Not only does Sunidá offer some excellent fishing, but it is also an exceptional destination for lovers of wildlife and especially birds with many unusual species in the area.
The custom 21-foot Marsopa bay boats are kitted with 150 4-strokes, fore and aft casting decks, and poling platforms. They have been built exclusively for the lodge and are comfortable to fish from and an ideal boat to explore the river.
The newly built lodge is located a stone’s throw from the river. Stilted living quarters are perched on a high bluff and nine feet above the ground, giving stunning views of the Paraná River and surrounding area.
The property includes three spacious, two-bedroom cabañas, with private bathrooms. Wooden footbridges conveniently connect each room to the main dining hall. From there, it’s a short walk to the water, where you’ll spend your days exploring the Paraná’s most productive, structure-rich sections for big dorado.
