Argentina, Patagonia

Patagonia

We are very excited in presenting the new program alternatives for trout fishing in the Northern Lake District of Patagonia. Traditionally most itineraries are based in one place from where to go fishing. This season we offer 3 itineraries for the same price that will give you the ability to cover more of this great area and experience three different fishing zones in one trip. Whichever you chose, it will seamlessly schedule every fishing day in your preferred itinerary. Choose your preferred itinerary and contact us to reserve your dates.
Our interpretation of your best day on the river does not include several other fishermen. In Patagonia it’s likely that the only other fishermen you will see on the river are those you bring along.
In addition to the rivers and lakes mentioned below, your guide may take you to remote, virtually unexplored waters where fish have never seen an imitation fly with opportunities to hook bows and browns at 5 to 10 pounds.
During prime season it is likely that your guide will give you several options of where you would like to fish on a day-to-day basis.The Lake district of Patagonia is the territory that Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid chose as their place of escape.

HOW IS THE FISHING THERE?
As it turns out, this is one of the best places in the world to escape with your fly rod. The associated National Parks are situated in Northwest Patagonia in the heart of what is also called the Lake District or Lake Area. This area in Argentina reflects best the perfect relationship between man and nature. Its extended masses of water are considered the purest in the world by many international environmental organizations. The purity is not confined to the water only, but in the splendor of the entire area.
The areas we visit are much like that of the trout triangle of North America. If you have fished in western Montana, western Wyoming or southeastern Idaho you will be quite familiar with the climate of these areas. You can expect warm summer days and clear cool nights with the stars of the Southern Hemisphere shinning over-head.
