The Waters and its Fish

Being blessed with innumerable rivers, creeks, lakes and lagoons, our fishing options are almost unlimited. Trout, both browns and rainbows, are not stocked and have found their own natural balance in numbers and sizes. You will catch lots of strong, wild fish in the 12 to 20-inch range. Generally, fish over 20-inches are caught daily, over 23-inches weekly. The lodge record for both brown and rainbow trout is 32 inches.

From BaseCamp, the main river systems we fish are the Palena, Rosselot, Figueroa and Yelcho. Numerous Tributaries will give you the chance to fish in smaller creeks. Or let us take you on a real Patagonian Adventure.

From our Temple Camp we fish the upper stretches of the Rio Figueroa and the waters around Lago Verde.

Every river and lake has its own character and secrets. Depending on the season and water levels you will fish with huge dry flies like Fat Alberts and Gypsy Kings, heavy streamers, traditional dries, and even small bead-head nymphs. Or you might find yourself sight-fishing for surface feeding rainbows with size 20 beetles, ants and emergers. And, of course, there are those lodge secrets which your guide will only reveal when you are here.
