Pira Lodge is located in Northern Argentina’s Iberá Marshlands and is protected by a natural preserve more than twice the size of the Florida Everglades.
Nearly three million acres of largely unexplored marshland, including creeks, rivers, lagoons and freshwater flats, all teeming with fish.
Fishing for Golden Dorado, one of the most voracious and beautiful species, takes place aboard a fleet of 16-foot
Hell’s Bay flats skiffs. You’ll dodge caymans and catch freshwater Dorado in the 5-to 20-pound class on everything from dry flies to stripped streamers.
Crystal clear water throughout the entire fishery throughout the season, which leads to great opportunities for sight fishing
When your fishing day’s done, decompress and take in a traditional asado at one of the finest lodges fishing has to offer.
However, it is the electric take and dazzling fight of the Dorado that bring fishermen back year after year!

Gun / Fishing Equipment - Available or suggested:
The freshwater Dorado is a hard fighting and acrobatic fish known for its strong runs and relentless jumps.
Due to the clarity of the water, there is plenty of opportunity for sight fishing.
* Rods: Ideally two rods are recommended to cover most fishing situations. A powerful 9 ft, 6 and an 8 weight will work. A 7 weight is all rounder in the case of bringing only one rod.
* Lines: Both floating lines and sinking lines.
* Flies: Traditional saltwater streamers. An andino deceiver is the traditional dorado fly.
Guides are equipped with boga grips and will assist guests in weighing and releasing fish, without harming them. Pirá is strictly a catch and release fishery.
