Located outside San Javier, Santa Fe, Parana Sunrise is a secluded hunting and fishing lodge situated on a huge delta only few kilometers west of the main Parana River. It holds 16 guests in six single and five double rooms, all with private full baths and individual AC and heating units. Meals are served either in the main dining room or on the veranda with amazing views of the middle Parana River Delta. Wind down after a long day with drinks and appetizers on the veranda, at the open bar or soak in the riverside pool and hot tub. The main lodge room includes a fireplace, large flat-screen TV, bar area, poker table and large wine selection. Guest can also enjoy a workout in the small gym followed by relaxing massage.
The Parana Sunrise staff includes Ivan, the co-owner and co-founder, David, the full time manager and hunt coordinator, Betty, a chef who prepares amazing meals, Andreas, the head waiter and bartender and finally Belèn and Lucia who are in charge of housekeeping/laundry. Jose and David lead the fleet of hunting and fishing guides.
Parana Sunrise lies on the edge of a vast labyrinth of marshlands a few kilometers west of the Parana River’s main channel. Fly and spin fishermen will find prolific Golden Dorado fishing in this remote network of rivers, creeks and lagoons. Boats are comfortable and large enough for two anglers to cast simultaneously to Golden Dorado averaging 7-8 pounds. A full day’s fishing allows anglers to venture deep into the delta while half days allow for an afternoon of dove shooting.
North and south of Parana Sunrise Lodge lie miles of corn, rice, milo and sunflowers fields plagued by dove. Within a 15-45 minute drive, hunters can experience a true high volume Argentina dove hunt. It is difficult to comprehend this level of shooting until you actually experience it. Forget dove hunting in Cordoba when you can get equal shooting plus outstanding Golden Dorado fishing without the added travel.
Dove and Dorado Combo
While most Argentina cast and blast trips require extensive travel between the fishing and shooting or have one activity that is inferior to the other, Parana Sunrise Lodge offers fast access to world-class dove hunting and Golden Dorado fishing in Argentina. Guests have the flexibility shoot or fish as much as they like, evening doing both in one day. We highly recommend no shorter than 7 nights/6 days as this will give you time to settle in, improve your shooting and fishing techniques and offer buffer days against rain.
This is the best of two Argentine classics, high volume dove shooting and outstanding Golden Dorado fishing, done conveniently from one beautiful lodge.
Golden Dorado Fishing
Golden Dorado fly fishing is the pinnacle of warm, fresh water angling. Their fierce strikes, brute strength and acrobatics leave anglers in awe. The middle Parana River Delta offer hundreds of square miles of unspoiled Dorado fishing waters and our local guides are on the water year round, ready to take you where the conditions and fishing are best.
Anglers will cast to the banks and into narrow channels from comfortable 17 ft outboard skiffs, equipped with trolling motors and casting platforms. On a good day during the Oct-Apr peak season, an angler might get 40 strikes and after a week, a few fish in the 13-15 pound range should be landed. Quality spinning, casting and fly rods plus lures and flies are available.
High volume dove hunts are over sunflowers, rice and other crops are all within 15-45 minutes from the lodge. Non-stop shooting action includes straight on shots, crossing shots, difficult high flying shots and everything in between. Any day of the year, dove hunters can expect opportunities to shoot 1000-2000 shells from 20ga Beretta shotguns. On full day dove hunt, you’ll enjoy an asado lunch in the field complete with cold beverages, wines and a siesta in the shade
