Fly Fish | Patagonia

Patagonia
 
Patigonian Argentina and Chile both provide excellent fishing for large wild brown and rainbow trout in the middle of our winter.  We recommend Chile because it has a stable government and economy, a more temperate climate, the spectacular Andes scenery, and a remoteness and freedom from other fishermen.  Our choice is in Region 11 of Patagonian Chile, about in the middle of Patagonian Chile, in an area not easily accessible except by air or ship.
 

Location and the Destination
The lodge is small but modern, situated on a lake, well populated predominately with wild brown trout which average about 22 inches.  This is an area of several different local streams and lakes which allow a new fishing experience every day, and makes it possible to have good fishing every day of your visit, even should there be unfavorable weather conditions that effect a particular fishery. A typical week at the lodge includes fishing the home lake at any time you wish – and can include sight dry fly fishing for the big browns cruising in the shallows before breakfast, or casting a mouse pattern by moonlight after dinner.
 
Within a fairly short driving distance are several other lakes including the "Monster Lake” where only huge (14 pounds or more) brown trout live, a fairly shallow "dry fly lake” where the browns cruise, and a number of streams including one that resembles a spring creek and has tons of brown trout who readily take a dry fly or small nymph.   On all of these waters, we have never observed other fishermen.  Guiding is by the Chilean lodge owners who are dedicated to your success, and speak English well.  Also included are two days in the Cohaique zone - guided float trips down the Simpson, Aysen or Manihuales Rivers, all which feature dry fly fishing for very large wild rainbows.
 
Accomodations
The modern accommodations consist of rooms with private baths, delicious "gourmet” meals including wine with both lunch and dinner, and a true welcoming atmosphere.  Locally owned and operated, this inclusive package provides real value.  So why sit at home in the snowdrifts – get a sunburn in Chile while enjoying some of the world’s best fly fishing and scenery.
