In Ilha Solteira, it is possible to rent equipment for fishing and boats with pilots, who give you instructions on how to fish corvina and other fish. The sport fisherman is the one who chooses the right type of hook, is careful when handling the fish and do not leave it out of the water for too long. And you, who are experienced sport fisherman, have you already tried fishing a blue tucunaré? Come and meet us and discover why we are a sport fishing paradise!
We have hotels and inns prepared to welcome the most and the less experienced fishermen. At the end of the fishing, try the flavors of the local gastronomy in the restaurants located in the Porto de Navegação (Port of Navigation), on the banks of the Paraná River, where you watch a beautiful sunset or choose to visit another of our many attractions.
Main fish found in Ilha Solteira:
Tucunaré: Can reach one meter in length and weigh up to 15 kilos. It eats other fish and any other kind of thing that moves and is smaller than them. It is easier to be hooked during the day and prefers slow or still waters, so it has adapted well to the waters of Ilha Solteira.
Corvina: prefers stronger currents, with sandy or muddy bottoms. As it is a greedy fish, to catch it, one must throw the hook with generous amounts of baits, preferably alive. It measures up to 80 centimeters and weighs about five to six pounds. It lives up to four or five years old.
