Pirá Lodge – February 2016

February started with the best week of the season so far. Water in the marsh was at a perfect level and dorado are concentrated in island side-channels and deep pools near Camalotes.
Floating lines with small dark deceiver-style streamers have been awesomely effective. We’re also having success with mouse patterns on the surface in the marsh. The Corriente River, on the other hand, continues to produce good numbers of sizeable dorado for anglers who like to swing streamers and bang the banks with big flies.
During one session, guest Jeff S. landed 7 dorado from 5 to 7 pounds. Jeff is an amazing fly tyer and his custom streamers were the ticket. Michael “Mickey” D. focused on fishing mouse patterns in the Ibera backcountry, and was rewarded for his efforts with an 11-pound rodent-muncher. Guest Jeff B. tangled with a 15-pound dorado in the headwaters of Corriente River. And those are just a few of the MANY highlights.
Overall conditions remain great, with a few storms around and just enough cloudy days to give us relief from the hot sun. In addition to fishing, wildlife watching is always great this time of year. Cayman and capybara populations are healthy, we’ve spotted swamp deer, and migratory birds are out in force.
Come join us in dorado fishing paradise. We look forward to seeing you soon.
