Amokagny - Dorado, Argentina

An exciting new destination from which to fish for the explosive dorado.

Amokagny Lodge is found on the upper Parana River in Corrientes, Northern Argentina. The Upper Rio Parana is a large delta system about 45 miles below the Yacireta dam, forming the border between Argentina and Paraguay. Due to the dam the water generally runs clear, unlike other large rivers in the region, offering some excellent sight casting opportunities. The dam also ensures that the fishery is not affected by seasonal rains.

The lodge owner’s hospitality is renowned. A passionate fly fisher himself, he ensures that his guests have the best possible experience. The fishing day is generally split into a morning and afternoon session with a traditional Argentine lunch served at the lodge leaving time for a siesta or swim. The river is several miles wide in some places so most of the fishing is done from boats in the side channels of the Yahape and Repeski areas, locations now famed for their concentration of fish. The hard-fighting Dorado is the main quarry but there are several other exotic species available to the fly, such as Pacu, Pira Pita (unique to this area), Denture and Palometa, the largest of the piranha.

One of the many advantages of this fishery is that the fishing remains surprisingly consistent for 11 months of the year. That said, we recommend visiting either between January and May or in September and October when the water is warmer and the fish most active.


Guests staying at Amokagny are accommodated in well-appointed, traditional Argentinian-style lodges on the banks of the Parana River. Each room has air conditioning, an en suite bathroom and Wifi internet. The menu is traditional Argentinian fare and meals are served outside during the warmer months. The lodge also has a swimming pool to enjoy during time away from the river.
