Golden Dorado fishing in Salta 
The remote north western province of Salta offers superb sport with golden dorado on the Del Valle, Dorado and Juramento Rivers as they flow through the Yungas, warm rainforests, home to birds such as the toucan, and mammals that include anteaters, tapirs, and pumas. These rivers of crystal clear waters are home to huge and powerful golden Dorado that provides excellent sport on the fly. For this season there has been an intensive work opening new trails to access the river where otherwise it was reachable by a day’s walking. This is an area new to fishing and the limited numbers of fishermen as well as a well-managed environmental policy, makes a great place to fish for Dorado. This is truly an exclusive place.

Guests stay at the comfortable 5star Estancia, which has 10 ensuite rooms and sits on a hill located in a large private estancia. It has over 20 miles of private river making it exclusive for fishing in this first season. .
