The Fish : Dorado is a favorite game fish of local fishermen in Argentina, people call, Tiger of the River, is realy a Argentina�s Golden Treasure. Is considered to be ,the most challenging fresh water game fish of South America, for the superb fighting Spirit, with the aerobatics leaps, powerful strikes, and line streching runs. The cientific name is Salminus Maxillosus, where describe the powerful jaws.

The fishing season in this area run all year around (excep Nov.2 to Dec. 15), but the best moment is  December to March, because is the hottest period.

The largest fish on record is believed to be a close 75 Lbs (34 Kg.).  Golden, take the fly hard, and are famous for their jumping abilities, and hard run. The sharp teeth, and powerful jaws will bend out hooks, and may cut wires. We advise to use barbless hooks, with good penetration, for a quick release. This fish  live in hostile environment, then you may find with their tales and fins, bitten by piranhas and others Dorados.
Local people catch Dorados using dead bait, but a large lure or wobbler is very good. In places for fly fish, you may expect to catch around 10 to 12 Dorados a day. You will lose as many fish as you catch., and remember, that, hooks must to be razor sharp.

Fishing is done mainly from the banks of the river and lagons.
