Rio Seco Lodge

Fly Fishing Trip and Lodge Details:

Rio Seco Lodge is located near the village of Las Lajitas, in the Province of Salta, and about three hours from the airport. The lodge serves over 20km of the Dorado River, which flows through the warm rainforests, forming big pools and riffles where the fighting Dorado, the tiger of the rivers, is found. A real adventure trip, the river is reached by horse along paths through the wonderful rainforest or by 4-wheel-drive vehicle. It is not unusual to come across toucans flying up, thousands of butterflies of different sizes and exotic colors, footprints of tapirs and pumas, corzuelas, mountain pigs, ducks and even anteaters!

The Fishing:

Fishing season starts in April and runs through November. The rainy climate makes fishing almost impossible in summer because the heavy rainfall produces rapid runoff and turns the waters muddy. It can also complicate road travel. The most interesting thing about dorado fishing here is that fishing is done by wading crystal clear waters, almost impossible in other destinations. Moreover, the Dorados are hard fighting, wild jumping, and brilliantly colored. The average size in the area has held between 4 and 8 pounds, even though larger fish are also caught. Fishing is usually done with floating lines and traditional dorado flies. In some sections, sinking line may be used. Black-and-orange and white-and-yellow flies have proved to be the most effective.
