Introducing a Bigger Dorado Experience

We’re proud to announce our new partnership with

Paraná River Outfitters (PRO) 

PRO melds one of Argentina’s most established outfitters with arguably the finest golden dorado guides worldwide. Situated on the middle section of the Río Paraná– South America’s second longest river–this subtropical winter fishery (from June 20 to November 5) targets the river’s legendary dorado migration.
The annual inflow of Sábalo brings the season to life. Aggressive dorado gorge on the baitfish, growing to sizes of 10 to 40+ lbs. After two full years of scouting, guides are keyed in on the fish habits and on their holding waters. You’ll sight-fish to monsters prowling the river’s long sandbars. You’ll explore remote backwater creeks. And you’ll cover everything from woody structure to cut-banks and deep channels.
Fishing is an all-day event, with lunch served on the water, followed by a siesta. Custom Carolina Skiffs feature a double-deck design built specifically for the Paraná. Skiffs are captained by tenured bilingual guides. Fly and conventional tackle are both highly effective.
Being on the Middle Paraná during the peak of the dorado migration is an unprecedented opportunity to target the river’s largest fish during a mostly untapped timeframe. We at Nervous Waters and our team at PRO are thrilled to introduce you to a new season on a truly special fishery.
