Alto Paraná Lodge Fishing Report – January 2015 – By Fabián Anastasio
The river is getting clearer by the day since the sun moved in and ushered away recent rains. Water temps are a bit warmer and levels are about back to normal—calling for longer leaders and lighter tippets.
Big pira pita and dry-fly fishing are also back on the agenda! We’ve had good success sight-casting for them in narrow side-channels. Similarly, we’re also seeing more pacu, where wet and dry “fruit flies” make for fun fishing. Last, and definitely not least, dorado have been cruising shorelines and corralling large baitfish schools. They’re on the hunt… and so are we!
The guide team has been busy designing new flies for the season: a big, buggy, and ultra-buoyant dry fly for pacu and pira pita and some deadly foam fruit imitations with enough “slash” to provoke savage responses. Smaller streamers for large, wary dorado are also being tweaked and tested. And some days they work better than the big Andino Deceivers. The arsenal continues to evolve.
We look forward to catching up with you on the water soon.
