Trout Fishing in Patagonia
large fishing picture below, is of European origin
and was introduced into the Patagonia region of Argentina/Chile
during the early 19th century.
The fish easily adapted to the cold lakes and rivers that were filled by the glaciers
and snow filled Andes Mountains. The large availability of insects in and
out of the water and as well as small native fish contributed to the successful
adaptation into the lakes and rivers. This colorful and feisty trout can
provide exciting fishing. It can be a strong, ferocious fighter and a challenge
to any experienced fly fishing enthusiasts. The picture below is one of
such brown trout and fly fishing enthusiast.
Great Fishing Guide
My son Justin Schoenauer, started out guiding when he was fourteen. His first
guiding experience was with an elderly lady of 74 who suffered with arthritis
and need help getting around. Justin showed at an early age the qualities
needed to be a good guide. His patience and kindness emerged as he worked
with his first client.
There is a lot to learn in fly fishing and good guides
are constantly learning and updating their skills. There is always someone bringing
new information and skills to pick up on
Fishing with a Guide
Fly fishing the different variety of trout and salmon
can be learned and enjoyed at almost any age, so the range of angling skills and
age can combine to make the task of guiding a real challenge. The best guides
do not fish when guiding their clients, as they get their pleasure from helping
and watching people catch fish. Observing and learning, then putting to practice
those things you have learned, whether it be from the persons you guide or from
the constant changes taking place above and below the water, is a must in becoming
a good fishing guide.
Patagonia Adventures takes great pleasure in training
and using guides that display these kinds of qualities.
Justin in this picture is holding one of the many browns
he caught this fine day at Alerces
Park, Chile, his favorite place. He had never fished
having someone guiding him. That day gave me great
pleasure to be a fishing guide and a father to a kind
and patient man. He showed his kindness again and
released the fish.
