fly fishing in Salta: a real adventure trip, only for those
fisherman who love wilderness and are avid to seek for new fly fishing
experiences. Here, it is not weird to come across toucans flying
up, thousands of butterflies of different sizes and exotic colors,
footprints of tapirs and pumas, brocket deer, mount pigs, monkeys
and even anteaters!
In this program, you will have the chance to fish the Juramento
river and mainly the Dorado river that flows through the yungas
(warm rainforests), forming big pools and riffles where the fighting
Dorado, the tiger of the rivers, is found. The most interesting
thing about Dorado fishing here is that fishing is done by wading
crystal clear waters, almost impossible in other destinations.
Moreover, the Dorados are hardfighting, wild jumping and brilliantly
The average of the fish -in Juramento and Dorado rivers- is around
8 pounds, fished with tackle, # 7-8 rods. Some 20 to 25 pound Dorado
can be find to. You will see them, not easy, but possible.
