Dorado, Pacu and Pira Pita

Suinda Lodge

Suindá is a paradise for Dorado anglers. It is situated in one of the Upper Paraná River's most productive sections that consistently yields impressive numbers of large Dorado. The key to its success lies in the diverse structure, fast-flowing runs and stunning rock gardens. Sight fishing to monster Dorado in the sandbank zones, where they prey on Sabalo baitfish is an exhilarating experience! Not only is Suinda a perfect angling destination on its own but it also works extremely well in a combination package with other Nervous Waters Lodges. We will be happy to assist with Sea Trout and Dorado packages. Please send through an enquiry

Season October – May

Argentina has a rich history of remarkable freshwater dorado fishing, with Nervous Waters leading the way in exploring diverse fisheries such as the massive Rio de la Plata system and the untouched expanses of the Ibera Wetlands.

Although Dorado can get up to 30 kg, a 4 to 5 kg Dorado is generally considered a great catch on the fly. Their ferocity and aerial displays have established freshwater dorado as one of the most distinguished gamefish worldwide.

While small dorado populations exist in select areas of the Amazon Basin, the sprawling Rio de la Plata is a massive and diverse stronghold for the species. Flowing through Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, and Uruguay, this basin ranks as the second-largest drainage system in South America and one of the largest worldwide. Its diverse ecosystem encompasses freestone rivers in the mountains, as well as marshes and lagoons in the lowlands—a freshwater-to-freshwater system rather than a connection to the sea.

The fishing schedule typically consists of two sessions per day, with a break for lunch and a siesta at the lodge. Fishing times may vary depending on the season and climate.

Excellent guides and equipment.

Catch-and-release only


Totally unrelated to the saltwater Dorado (also known as Mahi-mahi or Dolphin), the freshwater Dorado (Salminus brasiliensis) represents the apex of the Charasin family of fish in terms of sport fishing opportunities. Suinda guides have been exploring the area and Dorado fishing itself for more years than most. Although the dorado is one of the most exciting gamefish to catch, there is very little written about fly fishing for dorado. Its complex feeding regime and migratory nature ensure challenging and rewarding fishing opportunities for both expert and entry-level anglers.
Dorado are strong and acrobatic—and their pursuit is often more about quality experiences than a numbers game.

Pira Pita:

There are two species to target: Brycon Orbignianus and the commonly named in Brazil Piraputanga. Both, pound for pound, are two of the most combative freshwater species. Plus, they take surface flies.


Incredibly strong and complex, this omnivorous round-shaped fish can provide sight-casting opportunities and great dry-fly action. Not only that, they can get big: 15+ pounders have been caught.

Suinda recommends bringing 2 or 3 different singlehanded rods to approach the different species. A 9-ft. 8-wt or 9-wt rod to approach Dorado with reels carrying tropical floating lines.

A 9-ft. 6 or even 7-weight rod is suggested for Pira Pitá dry fly fishing. Floating tropical lines are a must for the warm weather conditions.

Pacu are targeted with both 8 and 7 weight rods and fruit patterns – floating lines are also used.

When it comes to leaders/tippet, it should be heavy enough to turn over big flies. Spools of mono should include 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70lbs test weights. For floating lines, you should have 9-foot, long tapered leaders. For sinking lines 5-6 feet of 30 to 50 lb depending on the kind of structure you will be fishing. Mono should work well in most conditions. Maxima Ultragreen Mono is a good option for leader material. An important thing to consider in a Dorado leader is the shock or bite tippet. These fish have very sharp teeth that will cut even the strongest mono. Bring plenty of 40 to 65lb test steel leader for your stay. AFW 7×7(American Fishing wire) inmate camo colour is a favorite among the guides. 40 and 65lb test for Dorado and Pacú; and 13 to 20lb test for Pirá Pitá.

The Lodge provides a wide selection of fly patterns as well as a modest supply of backup tackle at very competitive prices. That said, we recommend you bring a good supply of your own flies to get you through your stay.

Big Saltwater Streamers are usually the norm. Colors: Black, Black and Chartreuse/Red/ Yellow, Red/Black, Purple and Black with plenty of flashabou. Deceivers traditionally work very well. Other well-known patterns such as Lefty’s Half and Half, Whistlers, CockRoaches and Clouser Minnows are excellent choices too. Poppers & Divers in similar colour patterns have proven very effective in certain conditions. All flies should have a generous quantity of flat, wide holographic flashabou. Weed guards, though not a must, have proven to be quite useful. Size: from 1/0 to 5/0 (mostly 2/0 and 3/0)

Large Bombers, frogs, soft foam poppers, pencil poppers, deer hair poppers, Chernobyl ants and large bass or pike bugs. Bring a selection of different colors as the shade is often more important than style. Size: 1/0 to 2/0. For Pacú and Pirá Pita, we recommend fruit imitation flies. Keep your hooks razor sharp. Alto Paraná Lodge strongly encourages the use of barbless hooks.

Dorado fishing requires casting large flies in hot temperatures. If you think your casting abilities are not up to it or want to take a break during the day, we suggest you bring a casting or spinning rod.
