The Fishing

     All three areas (Alto Puelo Lodge, Argentina/Chile , Alerces Park. Argentina and Rio Yelcho, Chile) have very good fly fishing and the natural surroundings in these areas are extremely beautiful. We fish a great deal of diversified waters from rivers and lakes to spring creeks. Our clients have the advantage of drifting and casting to fish they see with dry flies or wading the pools and runs of the rivers fishing the way they like best. The fish are brown and rainbow trout with the average size 18-22 inches and larger fish are also present and caught each year. All the fish are wild and very strong.
