Guide

Trip Info

Experience a fishing trip of a lifetime in the Chilean Patagonia region with a variety of fly fishing waters and landscapes. Guided by a local and knowledgeable expert angler, you will have the opportunity to enjoy fishing small spring creeks in the dry pampas to big rivers in the temperate rainforests. This also provides a great fly fishing diversity, from tiny dry flies to large foam flies and hoppers and from big streamers to small nymphs.

We focus on resident Rainbows and Browns and also focus on the great King Salmon runs available. The time of the year for your trip will also dictate the fish we chase.

In the months of October and November, the glaciers have yet to melt offering a great period to fly fish glacial fed rivers, as they run small and clear. Spring creeks and the lakes are also at their best.

During December and January, it is a great time for fly fishing the outflows of some lakes, such as lakes Elizalde and Azul. The rivers Simpson, Manihuales, Aysen, Nirehuao, Emperador and Huemules start to get in shape.

The best time for dry fly fishing would be February and March. Mayfly hatches on the Simpson and Lago Frio, grasshoppers on the Nirehuao and Huemules and evening caddis hatches on Lago Pollux.

The months of April and May highlight our Fall season where the days are shorter and mornings cooler. The most beautiful time of the year, the rivers are very small and there are mayfly hatches all day long. The big browns of the giant General Carrera Lake start moving up the Ibanez and Jeinimeni rivers to spawn.

Depending on the season and spot, your average fish will range between 16 and 20 inches, with plenty of opportunities to get fish up to 24 inches.
