Corporate Fly-Fishing Retreats in Argentina
Patagonia Remote Fly-in Fishing Lodge in Argentina for Rainbow, Brook, Speckled Trout and Golden Dorado
South America’s Golden Dorado is a rare fish trophy that few Americans have ever caught and many have never even heard of. Their legendary reputation as a fantastic game fish is well deserved. Nicknamed the “Tiger of the river”, the Golden Dorado punish lures and flies, instantly make multiple acrobatic leaps like a tarpon and make finger-burning runs.
Fly Fishing specialize in complete experiences that seamlessly combine the best of Argentinian fly fishing with all of the culture, color, and romance of Patagonia. Patagonia… where snow-blanketed mountain peaks feed icy blue-green rivers, all seeming to harbor an untold number of trophy trout. It’s where friendly faces light up the platter-laden dinner table, and stories of the day are heartily toasted well into the evening, knowing tomorrow is bound to be just as unforgettable as today. Fly fishing in Patagonia elicits strong images for those who have traveled here — as well as those who have dreamed of experiencing an Argentine fly fishing trip.

Trophy Fishing Near the Argentine Rain Forest
Corporate Fly Fishing Packages in Patagonia for Rainbow Trout and Golden Dorado
The environment is pristine and extremely wild, where the footprints of wild animals and the sight of exotic birds flying above our heads, will lead us to an incredible adventure. The beautiful clearwater mountain rivers of northwestern Argentina-in particular Salta Province– provide habitat to 15-25 pound adult specimens as they migrate up the rivers to spawn, and juvenile fish from 3-15 pounds reside in the rivers year-round. On an average day here, an angler might hook ten to fifteen fish and any fish hooked over five pounds will provide an exciting fight.
Anglers fishing this river stay near the del Valle and Dorado rivers. These rivers flow through the “Yungas” (rainforest) forming large pools. These crystal clear sand and rock bottom rivers are often small enough that they are easily waded. Anglers can enjoy fly fishing in the warm water without having to use waders; wading boots will do the trick.

You need a good pair of wading boots, preferably high over the ankle to prevent injuries while wading over boulders.
Flies are typical baitfish imitations like Clousers, Half and Half, Deceivers, Gurglers, etc. A fishing guide per two anglers. All rivers in Salta are «catch & release» and we use barbless hooks. The fishing season begins on March 15 and ends on December 15.
