I can do

In Argentina, there is a wide variety of options for fishing enthusiasts. Thanks to its extensive coastline, rivers, and lakes, the country offers diverse opportunities to enjoy sport fishing.

At Rancho Salvaje Safari, you can enjoy the following types of fishing:
Fly fishing: It is one of the most appreciated techniques in Argentina, especially for trout fishing in rivers and lakes. By using flies to imitate insects and other natural trout food, you can experience truly incredible fishing.

Boat fishing: At Rancho Salvaje Safari, we have spacious and state-of-the-art boats for comfortable and safe fishing, reaching amazing locations for dorado fishing.

Lure fishing: This involves using artificial lures such as spoons, spinnerbaits, jerkbaits, or crankbaits to attract predator fish like the famous dorado.

Bait fishing: One of the most effective methods for dorado or surubi fishing is using live bait, such as small fish like minnows or catfish.

Shore fishing: Shore fishing in Argentine lakes is a popular and exciting activity for sport fishing enthusiasts. Argentine lakes offer a great diversity of species and breathtaking landscapes, making this experience unforgettable.

Wading: When the angler wades into the river to fish, they have the opportunity to access areas of the river that are difficult to reach from the shore. This allows them to explore and fish in strategic spots where fish gather, such as fast currents, pools, eddies, and submerged structures. Being in the water gives the angler greater mobility and flexibility to move and adapt to the river conditions.

When it comes to fishing in Lake Strobel, Lake Olnie, or Salto Grande Dam, it's important to dress appropriately to be comfortable and protected during your fishing expedition. Here are some tips on what type of clothing to wear in this environment

  • Layered clothing: Opt for dressing in layers, allowing you to adjust your attire according to changing
    weather conditions. Start with a long-sleeved shirt or quick-drying shirt as a base layer, and then add a sweatshirt or fleece jacket as an intermediate layer. For the outer layer, choose a windbreaker or waterproof jacket to protect you from gusts of wind and possible rain.
  • Durable pants: Select durable and comfortable pants that allow for free movement. Trekking pants or fishing pants made from water-resistant and quick-drying materials are ideal to protect you from splashes and provide comfort during long fishing days.
  • Appropriate footwear: Wear waterproof shoes or boots with non-slip soles to tackle the wet conditions of the lake. Ensure they are comfortable and provide good support for walking on uneven terrain.
  • Hat and sunglasses: Shield your face and eyes from the sun by wearing a cap with a visor to prevent glare and protect against UV rays. Additionally, use polarized sunglasses to enhance your vision and safeguard your eyes from water reflection.
  • Gloves: Consider wearing lightweight yet sturdy gloves to protect your hands from cold, wind, and contact with fish and gear. Fingerless or convertible gloves will allow dexterity for handling fishing equipment without sacrificing protection.
  • Remember that the weather in Lake Strobel can be unpredictable, so it’s important to be prepared for any eventualities. Adapting your clothing to the weather conditions will enable you to enjoy a more comfortable and pleasant fishing experience.
