In late September of 2022 we headed to the jungles of Bolivia to chase the legendary golden dorado!
A few things of note. This was by far the most demanding trip we’ve ever put together from the standpoint of time (week and a half), travel logistics, physical ability (hiking mountainous terrain in the heat) and financial commitment.
That said, it was also the most adventurous and rewarding. This is truly an all time bucket list trip for many serious anglers. Fishing was a mix of walk and wade sight fishing in ‘trout like’ rivers as well as bigger rivers out of huge dug-out canoes.
On top of the famous, hard fighting dorado chased the infamous Pacu, a huge piranha like fish know for taking dry flies! Our group was able to land two during our week.
We fished out of the Secure Camp, one of three golden dorado options run by the famous Tsimane Lodge crew.
Due to the logistics of this trip, we will once again team up with my friends at Fly Water Travel to help with everything.
