Chasico (7): 100 km from Bahia Blanca. Many still had not probed her by the strong heat that there was until nearly the end of February. As soon as it cooled a bit, some evidence thrown at good size fish, using paternoster and float. Rental boats, accommodation and guides on Chapalcó Ray:

Chis-Chis (8): 22 km from Chascomús. A start to all Orchestra in February. On a typical day is drew about 7-8 of 38 to 40 cm, and about 20 to 30 more of 28 cm.

Cochicó (9): access by the 208 Km of route 33. Five minutes from Guaminí and asphalt. Lots of water came from Alsina and is passing water to the rest of the chain of Guaminí. In January, the pique was very good, but then declined somewhat because the water was very hot. It points to a great season.

The Hill (14): 25 km from San Cayetano overland. It was closed until March, which ensures the presence of cute ports had last year, despite that 2012 was very hard to enter because of the bad weather and, hence, the impassable roads. It has still much yuyo, dentudos and water.

Paradise (15): Laprida 5 km. It was planted in November, then that will fill up the bucket that was dry during the time of lack of rain. You can enter with boat but without propulsion motor and fishing. They estimate that it will be enabled in three or four years when the mackerel are as minimum extraction. It looked also sown the lagoon keel Lauquen.

Pine (16): 20 km from San Cayetano overland. After the drought, it resembró on several occasions, like 24, the same owner, and De Vicenti gaps. If Silversides not exceed sizes had on other occasions, this mirror that only fishing costa will not open in 2013.

Another lowered boats is Orlando Martínez:, also going from Junín to Lincoln, the same route, in the last camp before the bridge over the lagoon: is a good place of descent and, in addition, fishing costa with too little land route.

Boat fishing is more complicated and you have to look it, but the results are better in quality.

Rosario (30): about 7 km from the town of Rosario. Some small mackerel are fished with two buoys with Crappie line live and small hooks.

The Gorge (23): 7 km from Rio Ceballos. It has very few silverside and is not permitted to sail with liquid-fuel engine. It is quite difficult to catch, because it’s a very scary silverside. If you see him eating there are many more chances to capture him, using a floating line with live Minnow.

Only one gets from the North to the crest of the dam area by route 5 going from Cordoba to third River reservoir, deviating in the Tower District by 17 km. prohibited the combustion engine.

We communicate with the Guide Eduardo Gambini, serving in Santa Isabel and Venado Tuerto, who told us that there was no Lake with good fishing: “the magpie (35) yielded well in 2010, but then not.” Villa Cañas (36) was dry with slaughter of all its wildlife. You now have good level and they started to grow from about eight months ago, with FRY and juvenile, but I do not know if this season will yield something. The Soraida (37) the same fate: fell a lot almost about to be dried with great slaughter. Teodelina (38) is the only one that can give something, but still did not start. This lagoon already three seasons ago that have planted it, but we have no news yet”.
