This trip is for the adventure-seeking angler with full-on fishing but with a touch of luxury added for good measure. Beautiful hard-fighting Giant Golden Dorado, large Pacu and Pirapatinga and huge Surubi Cats abound and can be caught on lures and flies.
Our anglers will fish for magnificent Golden Dorado in the Rzepecki area in creeks, streams, lakes and delta systems, where we catch many trophy-sized fish that receive very little fishing pressure.
Rzepecki is located in the wildest area of the Upper Rio Parana. This river has extremely rich and varied fishing areas, with deep channels, gullies, sandbars, lagoons, stone points and dozens of streams, making this area a real fishing paradise. Anglers will drift fish from the boat or cast from the bank, between wood structure or rocks and from different islands.
Anglers can catch Dorados over 30lb, along with Surubi Cats (usually on natural bait) to over 60lb and Pacus and Pirapatingas to over 25lb.
Dorados are caught with flies, lures or natural bait. We suggest 8-9 wt fly rods and same for the sinking tip line. Lures can be varied from shallow diving to deep diving lures, but all with beefed-up hardware.
Pacus and Pirapatingas inhabit parts of the river that are abundantly verdant and where there are trees full of fruit dropping into the water. They are often seen in shoals under these favourite fruit trees. Sometimes when monkeys feed here, fruits drop into the water and this can summon these big fish to eat.
Fly fishing for Pacus is a pure adrenaline rush. There are many methods to use for Pacus and Pirapatingas, from small streamers and flies that imitate insects falling from the trees. We suggest you try with small plastic pellets that represent the nuts of the Inga and Laurel.
The now famous "balls" are the invention and the product of the on-going research of a great Brazilian fisherman called Cesar Palma, who has developed these artificial, to imitate the sound of fruits falling into water and their various stages of maturity.
Also as an alternative anglers can use floating line to free fly and drift smoothly over ledges and under trees.
