If you're a fly fishing enthusiast or simply an adventure seeker, and are looking for a very different travel option, it's hard to beat Patagonia, and our Fly Fishing Programs. We invite you to live the ultimate experience in this special place in the world.
A fly fishing trip can be completed with many exciting angling experiences. With countless lakes, river and stream fishing options very close and access to non-crowded public waters you'll never run out of things to try. Whether you're a beginning fly fisher, or an expert, you're sure to be provided with an unforgettable angling experience.
WADING & 4WD ACCESS
The easily accessible waters offer an opportunity for the classic fly fishing experience of stalking and sight casting to trophy browns and rainbows in shallow, clear water. All of our guides operate modern 4WD vehicles and SUV´s, and can drive you to most of the famous mountain streams in stunning fishing locations.
We are fishing legendary rivers like the Malleo and the Chimehuin at just few minutes drive, but there are more remote streams that go unnoticed, and unfished, only a short distance away from your place of lodging. Some of these small mountain creeks offer very easy walking along grassy banks with shallow wading between quiet pools and runs. Here a big dry fly that floats through a riffle will usually induce a dramatic take.
This trips are an excellent way to experience Patagonia wilderness; we offer many choices among the wide variety of rivers and lakes that we have in the area around San Martin de los Andes town.
From one to six days, Floating trips and Expeditions incorporate a very large area to fish, that would otherwise be unattainable, because vast areas of Patagonia are wild and far away from the roads. Among the favorite rivers that we float, you'll find the Collon Cura, Alumine, Chimehuin, Caleufu and many lakes in National Park lands.
