Located on the southwest corner of the Corrientes province,
north of Buenos Aires, Esquina is a unknown destination
for most anglers. Right where the Corrientes and the Paraná
rivers meet creating a delta where you have lots of different
options where you can fish for the Golden Dorado´s.
Climate its quite warm, with an anual average temperature
of 26.6º C, raising in the summertime to an average of
33º C. During the winter time temperatures rangre from
8.4º C to 22º C.
THE DORADO (Salmonius Maxilosus) its a salmon specie that
finds its habitat in the Paraná system. Known as
the Tiger of the Rivers this extremely voracious fish
prefers to wonder close to confluences, near the shores
and in spots with current where he can find more oxigen
and its prey, although he has a good capacity to addapt
to spots of with no current.
This golden salmon is strong and it can get up to more
than 30 pounds, being the usual capure between 4 to 18
pounds, and once hooked this fish gets very acrobatic
giving a superb fight.
The season is almost all year round, from January to November.
As these fish are STRONG FIGHTERS a No. 7 to 9 weight
rod is required. Saltwater Reels are recomended, but if
not any reel with a good drag system.
Due to the sharp teeth and the way these Dorados attack
the flies, its a must to add a section of 20 lb steel
Leader to the end of your line. Our experience has told
us that the best lines are WF floating lines for tropical
weather, intermediate, and fast sinking lines like the
Teeny´s 200 and 300 grains.
Flies that get most of their attention are decievers in
dark colours combined with chartreusse, red, orange and
The lodge is perfectly located on the edge of the rio
corriente close to were he mets with the Paraná
river. The pure scenery and vegetation of this area its
a reason enough to visit this place, but the lodge itself
makes the perfect contrast with the surrounding enviorment.
Located at the southern tip of Argentina, the island of
Tierra del Fuego hosts the biggest´s sea trout of
the world. The Rio Grande its located on the North area
of the island, and his meandrous course holds the prime
trout of the world. This sea trout average 11 pounds and
they can get up to more than 30 pounds.
Fishing for this sea run brown trout is very interesting,
the fishing techniques are quite easy, just cast, mend,
let your line drift and wait for a hookup. Nothing happened!!
then move downstream a couple of steps. The techniques
may vary depending on the conditions and the guides.
To cover the water No. 8 rods are the best. For the changeable
conditions of the rio grande its best to have a set of
lines that covers from floating to 400 gr sinking lines.
At the end of the line is recomended to use a 7 ´to
10´16 lb test leader. Sometimes to reach the further
bank it will imply a long cast, for this we recomend to
use spey rods (double hander rods) with either a spey
line or a regular teeny.
Flies that normally attract their attention are, Leeches
(black, purple, chartreusse), wooliebuggers in black,
brown and olive, bitch creeks, ninphs like prince ninphs,
zonkers and green machines.

unstable, in a day you can have every kind of conditions.
