in Fishing Regulations
There has been a major change in regards to fishing regulations that will have
a major impact. That change is quite a big move toward conserving the resource.
The changes state that "all lakes, rivers and streams in Patagonia will be
considered catch and release and any area that will be allowed for keeping fish
will be designated by each province of Argentina.
This is a drastic change for Argentina,
but a good one. This shows the good intent and the importance of how fly fishing
has helped changed the attitude of a lot of people. We need this now as although
the fishing is quite good where we fish, there are a lot of areas that are showing
fast decline in good fishing.
for the this season and last is that all hooks for all types and style of trout
fishing without exception will be barbless. This is to make it easy
for anyone to release the fish with less harm to it.
The trout season now opens November 1st and runs to the end of April. In some
areas the season is open for a longer period or all year round, but only catch
and release for the extend periods.
