Golden Dorado are an exceptionally unique species. Not only are they visually captivating, but they are among the most exciting fish to catch on the fly. They are aggressive and will attack streamers with reckless abandon providing anglers with strong runs and an acrobatic fight. Considering this, it's no surprise that Golden Dorado are high on many angler's bucket list.
Urban Dorado Anglers offers the unique experience of being able to catch Golden Dorado within striking distance of one of the largest cities in the world. Within a 30-minute boat ride you are transported to another world where the urban sprawl of Buenos Aires disappears into diverse ecosystem of tributaries and islands.
Buenos Aires rests along the Río de la Plata and the Paraná Delta, which feeds the Río de la Plata. The Río de la Plata is one of the widest rivers in the world and, when combined with the Paraná Delta, creates a wonderous maze of water that is home to exceptional fly fishing for dorado, wolfish, and other species
Although this diverse ecosystem exists within close proximity to the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, a 30-minute boat ride is all that is needed to create the feeling of fishing a river in a remote jungle.
UDA primarily fishes nearby island chains that are scattered throughout the Paraná Delta and Rio de la Plata. Additionally, they have exclusive access to private estancias on sections of the lower Paraná River and its tributaries.
Most casting is done within close range and targeted towards structure that provides current breaks. Rocks, sticks, trees and dock pilings all provide the necessary ambush points for Dorado. Depending on conditions and location, both casting from the deck of their custom made skiffs and wet wading may be utilized.
All the necessary fly-fishing gear, gourmet lunches, snacks and drinks are included each day. At the end of the day UDA will transfer you back to your hotel or the airport depending on your itinerary.
