La Zona Dorado
La Zona Dorado
International anglers consider the golden dorado to be one of the world's most powerful fresh water sportfish. It is in La Zona where the biggest fish of this species have been recorded. The Uruguay River is a tailwater below the large Salto Grande Reservoir. Fishing can be done year-round, except for a period in late October to mid November when the area is closed due to spawning.
Comfortable custom designed skiffs offer wide platforms for unobstructed casting from both the bow and stern. In addition to fly fishing, spin or baitcast angling is permitted using one barbless hook in the lures. Anglers may also find large sardinatas, lachas and chafalotes, all of which are excellent fighters.
Six anglers can fish at any one time inside the dam (two boats). Eight anglers can fish at any one time but time inside the dam must be shared with 1/2 day swaps.
La Zona Lodge is a newly refurbished lodge on a ranch very close to the fishery. There are air conditioned double rooms. Included in the package are delicious home cooked meals, beverages, transfers to the fishery, expert guides and specially designed fly-fishing boats.
