Pirá Lodge Mid- February Report 2018

We started our second month of the season at Pira Lodge with perfect weather and crystal clear water. River levels remain stable, but river temperatures have cooled down by a few degrees in the Corriente, making the dorado fishing there a little more challenging.

Higher up in the system, however, the top-water fishing, with floating lines, is very good. The pira pita bite has been consistent and, of course, we’re still seeing some great golden dorado come out of several of the channels in the marsh. Surubi catfish encounters have been another pleasant surprise. Although they don’t jump, they do fight brilliantly, with the larger fish typically pulling us into our backing.

It was a pleasure to share the water with some familiar guests this past month. Dick S. remembers being here when the lodge first opened. Chris D., on the other hand, visited us for the first time. The Montanan is a filmmaker for the TV show “RAM Outdoorsman”. We’re certain he got some excellent footage. Another experienced angler, Gary M. of Florida, had a blast in the marsh, where he caught a variety of species.

As favorable fishing conditions continue, we’re expecting more fun in our near future. Join us!
