From the moment Untamed Angling began fishing in a section of the Uruguay River they found out that it is a place where conventional rules do not apply. The size and toughness the dorado exhibits in La Zona is not like anywhere else on this planet.

Until Untamed Angling obtained special permits as a result of many years of hard work, this area of the Uruguay River was banned for fishing by the Argentina and Uruguay governments.

For the past few 6 or 7 years, only 2 boats were allowed to fish the zone under strict conservative rules such as restricting the hours, number of fishermen, and days of fishing under close watch by the ARgentina government.

This season the Uruguay government issued 2 special permits which practically eliminates the netting by locals which has been taking place the past few years resulting in more monster dorado over 40lbs this season according to the fantastic guides who work for Untamed Angling.

Head guides, Enzo Rico and Elbio Bordon (Elvis) know where the monster seek their prey and which lures to lure them to. Co-Founder Hector Bradanini knows these waters like the back of his hand, and often fills in guiding anglers to dorado of their dreams. Assistant guides, Ramiro Piro and Jorgito Buffa will make sure to use massive fish cradles to land your trophy.

Lodging is a former Polo Pony Ranch where each guest gets their own room complete with bath and toilet. Chef, Nelson Cutro is one of the best chefs I have seen at a fishing lodge let alone any top of the line restaurant! Hostess Maria makes sure your room is spic and span each morning while you are catching moster dorado.

I highly recommend you take time to fish for these dorado at least once in your life. Check out and
