Where to fish in Corrientes

In the province of Corrientes three types of fishing are practiced, we tell you what they are and where to do them.

Dónde pescar en Corrientes

 Corrientes  is located in northeast Argentina. The Paraná River, to the north and west, separates it from the provinces of Chaco and Santa Fe; while to the east the Uruguay River is the international border with Brazil and Uruguay; and finally to the south, the Guayquiraró River separates it from the province of Entre Ríos. Thus, the provincial territory, surrounded by rivers, is an ideal place to fish and enjoy its coasts, spas and beaches.

The province of  Corrientes  is about 750 kilometers off the coast of the Paraná River, 400 km from the coast of Uruguay and many others on the Corrientes River, as well as several watercourses, lagoons and   the Iberá Esteros  , which is the second freshwater reservoir in the world.

Travellers, especially fishermen, can enjoy this natural environment by staying in an attractive range of hotels, inns, cabins and campsites. There you will find the necessary services to make your visit perfect, with specialized guides, transfers, boat rental and equipment to practice all kinds of fishing.
