November – April
Based in San Martin de los Andes, Argentina, this guide service has been outfitting anglers in Northern Patagonia since 1996. They offer a range of fishing options by utilizing a mix of public, and over 260 miles of private access waters on over 12 local rivers, 7 estancias (fishing ranches), private leases, and various overnight camp floats. World famous rivers such as the Malleo, Chimehuin, Collon Cura, and Limay serve as the focus of this operation, plus many lesser known rivers that fish well seasonally. This area of Patagonia possesses very diverse types of fishing, from sight casting to rising trout on spring creeks, to stalking big browns on crystal clear mountain streams, throwing large dries on faster freestones, and fishing productive tail waters. From the often prolific mayfly and caddis hatches of the early summer (Dec-early Feb) and fall (late March-April) to the inch worm infestation and minnow runs during mid-summer, this rich area always has something to offer the visiting angler. Trips of any length (typically 6-10 fishing days) are custom designed for each client based on fishing preferences, trip timing, and budget. Many clients take advantage of mixing time at the top notch estancias with their miles of private access water, with some public access fishing and quality overnight camp trips. The first class estancias give traveling anglers the opportunity to stay on site, limiting drive time to and from the river, which makes for an easy pace while maximizing the fishing. This trip is perfect for those wanting a dynamic fishing experience catered to their fishing preferences and budget. Experienced bilingual guides & great equipment (including a fleet of drift boats) on some of the best trout water in the Southern Hemisphere.
7-day fishing package runs from $2,800-$5,500 based on double occupancy/shared guide and depending on itinerary. While we have standardized itineraries, all trips are custom designed
