Trout Fishing at Alerces Park, Argentina
Alerces Park Fishing Lodge in Patagonia, Argentina is located
about two hours from Esquel and four hours from Bariloche,
Argentina. Alerces Park has five major lakes, three main
rivers and two spring creeks, all with big strong brown
and rainbow trout. From one central location our guides
will boat to a different place each day. The lodge prepares
a great lunch and if the weather is not that great we will
come in for lunch. If you are not into wading, we
have jet boats that can put you on to the fish. We float
the rivers and cast along the lake edges. This can produce
a lot of good trout.
More fish per day in the 18-22 inches size are caught at
Alerces than at the Yelcho in Chile.
It can be difficult to catch a fish in the Alerces Park
smaller than 18 inches and just as difficult to take one
bigger than 26 inches.

trout range from 18-29 inches. On lake Menendez the dry
fly fishing is outstanding and you can expect to catch from
30 to 40 fish all over 20 inches and up to 26. The big ones
