Pirá Lodge – February 2015

Pirá Lodge – Fishing Report

 

Fishing Report (Feb 1- 20, 2015) – by José Antonio Caparros

During the last two weeks of February, water has retreated and the marsh is shaping up nicely. While moving from one fishing spot to the next, wildlife abounds—everything from capybara to caiman and birds of various species.

We’re also finding fish, of course, with good numbers concentrated in the headwaters of the Corrientes River and up and down the “Escondido” channel. One client, Ariel Kane, recently landed a 15-pound dorado, and we’re seeing several in this hard-fighting size-class in those zones.

Idyllic water conditions have also allowed us to experiment with different angling techniques. We’re finding success, for instance, with mouse patterns on floating lines in the side-channels. In addition, we’ve had fun “swinging” 300-grain sinking lines across the river, similar to sea-trout and salmon fishing.

Totals for this period included 60 dorado, with 7 weighing between 12 and 15 pounds—which has made for some very happy guests and guides!
