The rivers we fish.
FLOATING THE JURAMENTO RIVER.
The Juramento River is close to the base camp in El Tunal and is fished on 4 different drift boat sections allowing new water to fish each day. Fish in excess of 30 pounds can be landed in this river as you drift between drop off and pick up points, casting to likely structure and hoping for a hungry Dorado to be close by.
Located in the village of “Las Lajitas” in the middle of the “yungaSalteña” (subtropical forest), adjacent to the National Park El Rey, the Rio Dorado runs freely. With fully crystalline waters, ideal for wet wading and sighfishing, with light equipment ranging from # 6 to # 8 (ideal size) with a floating line. This beautiful river, averages 3 kg., Dorados. You can capture up to 12 kg. Rio Dorado gives us a unique type of fishing, in which we get to see our pray and fish it like a subtle trout.
Alejandro is one of the pioneers of fly fishing for golden dorado in Argentina, a passion that led him to create Juramento Fly Fishing in 1994, based in the small town of El Tunal.
A tireless protector of the native dorado, Alejandro’s activism has ranged from intervening with poachers along the river to being a founding member of Fundación Rio Juramento—a regional nonprofit dedicated to protecting the fish and watershed.
