Live the Golden Experience

Upper Paraná River, Corrientes, Argentina

Golden Fly Fishing

The adventure of a life time

A unique fishing trip in untamed clear waters featuring gourmet food, personalized service and lodging within rustic, elegant interiors.

Come face to face with the Tiger of the River, surrounded by Golden waves as you set the hook, a Golden Dorado with a scowl on his face angry as hell, will suddenly jump three feet in the air showing his teeth before diving back into the river, busting your reel with his aggression.

Take the challenge. What are you waiting for?

The fascinating Golden Dorado fish and its huge jumps above the water, the location near the Paraná River, the wildlife and the excellent food (you’ll definitely not starve!). Above all, the personalised service offered by Vittorio y Vicente really makes the difference. They organized a car trip to the awesome Iguazu falls at the end of our stay. Highly recommended!

After fishing all over the world, I was curious about fishing on the Parana River. The Fly Fishing itself was excelent, but also requires a well skilled Fly Fisher. The hospitality in the Lodge and the professional guiding can’t be topped. Go there and you will have a fantastic time.

The fishing was phenomenal and whilst I was lucky enough to land the Parana “grand slam”…Boga, Dorado, Pacu and Pyra Pitá, the Dorado fishing is in a class of it’s own. For anyone in the USA looking for the chance to catch Golden Dorado, this Lodge is unbelievable value for money, the team is outstanding and highly recommended.

Our second trip to Golden Fly Fishing: we LOVE this place! Outstanding lodge, fishing, food (!!!) & most importantly, the people. Vittorio & Vicente are talented, warm, loving & delightful. Plus, when no one else on the river is catching fish, we’re having multi-fish days. Best Guides On The River.

I had the chance to share several times with Vittorio and Vincente the magnificent place that is Paso de la Patria. Besides the personal and professional attention, nature offered us a unique place in the world. It was an exquisite sensation to have a dorado or a pira pita catching my flies. For sure, I am going to enjoy again more in the future.
