While wading the white sand bars and spotting the golden dorado chasing minnows, the fishing excitement arrives at its highest level when the golden dorado hooks into a streamer and begins showcasing his acrobatic jumps and stamina that she is known for. The golden dorado is native to warm freshwater habitats in southern Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia, and northern Argentina. The golden dorado is considered a prized sportfish by many fly fishermen across the globe – known for its powerful jaws filled with sharp teeth and yellow-golden scales with adults ranging in size from 6-22 lbs. The golden dorado frequently takes flies both on the surface and subsurface and is waiting for your arrival.
