Fishing in the Iberá Marshlands, Northern Argentina
The enormous marshlands of the Iberá are increasingly popular with anglers who come from all over the world to experience the explosive power and aggression of the fresh water dorado. They have an incredible turn of speed, and the glint of their golden bodies as they constantly leap will be a memory to treasure for years to come. The 3 million acres of the Iberá are characterised by lagoons and rivers linked by clear water creeks, and abundant birdlife.
The Iberá Marshlands
Day 1: Met at the airport and driven (4 hours) to the Lodge. Fishing will depend on the time of arrival.
Days 2-7: On a typical fishing day depart for the river at about 9am, after breakfast. Fish through, with a short coffee or mate break until about 2pm. Lunch will either be a picnic prepared at the river or you will return to the lodge. After a rest return to the river for as long as your arms will permit! You will usually get back to the lodge at about 9.30pm, when after a shower drinks and supper will be served (guides eat separately). Depending on the day’s stories you will probably get to bed after midnight.
Day 8: Transfer to the airport.

We recommend Pirá Lodge which has the latest flats skiffs (one boat and guide per 2 fishermen). Open all year, with the best time for dorado from October to the end of April. The lodge operates a fixed 7 night programme from Saturday to Saturday between mid January and mid March, but shorter stays possible throughout the rest of the year. The nearest airports are either Corrientes or Resistencia.
