La Zona report for April 12 to 15

Busted rods, gears burned out on top of the line reels, hooks bent which seems impossible, snaps opened, lures destroyed, and lines broken , all which describes our fantastic trip to La Zona Lodge on the Uruguay River. This was my 7th trip to the magical fishery known as La Zona for monster golden dorado.  With high water conditons, the odds were not in my favor to top my personal best of 48lbs and land a golden dorado over 50lbs. However, my dreams were answered with monsters of 53, 52, and 51 pounds.
Top guides, Alejandro, Fabi, Elvis, and Matias knew where these monsters were lurking and the proper methods to land them.  Deep divers were the key just knicking the deep submerged rocks where the dorado lay out of the strong currents waiting to ambush their next meal!

Everyone in the group of 4 landed monster dorado of at least 47 pounds.  Counting only huge dorado over 30 pounds we wound up with a total of 25 trophies for the 4 days of fishing which is a testiment of the great guides at La Zona Lodge.

Cannot wait to head back next season and land a 60 pound giant.  La Zona Lodge fills quickly as golden dorado are landed year round.  Contact Steve Yatomi at and email him at for booking information on the trip of your dreams!!
