The freshwater Dorado is the ultimate apex predator of its domain.  The incredible ferocity, power, and stamina of this species makes it one of the most desirable pursuits on the fly.  And the destination to pursue the largest Dorado in the world is, without a doubt, the fishery below Salto Grande Dam in Uruguay.  River Plate Anglers offers an excellent program to access this incredible fishery, while staying in first class accommodations of Horacio Quiroga Resort.   FISH ON!
