Some of you may have heard about recently imposed restrictions regarding the restricted/exclusive fishing area at the Salto Grande dam in Argentina. On Oct 7 both Argentina & Uruguay banned any fishing WITHIN 500 mts. of the dam. That eliminates the vast majority of productive water. Security concerns regarding the dam were the reasons cited. I initially misunderstood the restrictions as moving the downstream limits of the "Zone" closer to the dam by 500 mts. That would have left some productive water close to the dam. WRONG. If the water is low you would be better off wading. BUYER BEWARE, I'm sure there will be some deals to be had out there.

I really enjoyed my many trips to that fishery over the years. This is really disappointing news.

I can verify the statement made by Wilson. Perhaps the greatest fishery on earth is now off limits. Many of us are so fortunate to have wetted a line in the zone. I was extremely fortunate to have been able to fish in La Zona every year since its opening. What a dissapointment as the golden dorado is one of the top freshwater fish on earth! Hopefully the restriction changes soon.
