A 6-hour fishing outing in the Paraná River guarantees an encounter with the hardest fighting and most amusing fish. Dorado, surubí and the best species of Misiones await.
The junction of the Paraná River (which stands for “large sea or father of all waters” in the Guaraní tongue) and the Iguazú River gives origin to a series of ideal fishing spots where angling can be enjoyed in the Province of Misiones.
A great deal of sediment from creeks, rivulets and rivers, which not only deposit their mud but also contribute their forage fish, such as breams, needle jaws and catfish -the main diet of large predators, including the dorado- ends up on the margins of these rivers, both on the Paraguayan and the Argentinian sides.
Searching for the dorado
The dorado is the most beautiful fish dwelling in the waters of the Paraná River. Known as “river tiger”, its braveness and hunting voracity have made it the best fish to catch. There is no hardest fighting species in angling. Owner of impressive teeth, once it bites, it starts to display incredible acrobatic moves that increase the excitement of fishing. Fighting with this fish usually takes long minutes of tension and adrenaline and that is the proposal of these outings that last approximately 6 hours in which amusement and adventure on the river are guaranteed.
