GENERAL INFORMATION
The fishing season in Patagonia runs from the middle of November through end of April in most habitats. During the first 2 months, the temperature tends to be very pleasant. It is thawing time so the rivers are high and well-oxygenated, creating the ideal conditions for fishing. In January and February, days are longer and hotter and the level of water is a bit lower. This is the perfect time of the year to fish wearing light waders, few clothes and to use dry flies. In the last months of the season (March and April), the level of water drops down in most habitats, and it does not make trouble with wade fishing. Fishing is very profitable and subtle, big trout start swimming upstream, getting ready for winter spawning. It is a magic time as regards sights; vegetation becomes multicolor to welcome autumn.

Package: We offer daily or weekly tailor-made packages. Our aim is to make everything related to your trip easier, offering an integral service. For a 1-day-long outing, we take Bariloche and its surroundings as our base. Weekly packages offer a wide variety of possibilities which include expeditions that last several days, accommodation in hotels or lodges.

Daily Outings: Habitats where we are organized: Rivers: Limay float fishing in four different stretches on our boats. Pichi Leufu private and public access. Traful private access. Foyel. Lakes: Especjo, Rocca, Fonk, Hess, Moscos, Mascardi, in these habitats we use motor boats to get to the best spots.

The outings are organized throughout the whole season, being San Carlos de Bariloche or Villa La Angostura the starting point.

EQUIPMENT & GEAR
Wading
All of our fishing is in rivers and streams, wading from the coast. One pair of fly weight chest waders and one pair of neoprene chest waders is recommended. The new waders "non-condensation" is the best for walking. The comfort of your wading shoes is very important also.

Rods
Bring 2-3 rods. A good combination is:
-- 8-91/2; 5/6 weight for dry flies and nymphs.
-- 9-91/2; 7/8 weight for Boca or streamer fishing.

Lines
We suggest:
--Floating lines for each rod.
--Sink tip lines 5-8. (like Scientific Angler Ultra 2 wet tip IV 10 or Tenny Nymph Tip)
--Shooting head sink tip line 7-8 weight (Teeny T200 or T300 or shooting line sink V).
--Optional: Intermediate sinking line. Baking 75 - 100 yards is sufficient.

Leaders
From 4 to 12 feet long. Tippet material is extremely important in Argentina. The trout are very strong and powerful. Your tippet material should be sheer resistant as well as have the maximum breaking strength in small daymeters.

Flies
Bring plenty of flies. You can lose 6-10 flies a day on snags, in trees, by breaking off fish or on stones.
Streamers:
Wooky Bugger, black and olive (from size # 4 to 10); Rabbits, cinnamon and black (size #2 to 8); Matukas, green and olive (size #8 to 12); Blonde, white (size #2 to 6); Cone Head Marabou Muddler, brown and white (size #2 to 8).

FISHING AREAS

Limay River It is a renowned river around the world and it definitely deserves it. We might have a good time with an important amount of a medium-size fishing, but the possibility of hooking the trout of our lives is always there. Every season, many catches of fish that weigh over 9 pounds reaching the 18 pounds are registered. Big rainbows abound during the first months of the season (November and December), whereas there is more chance of catching excellent browns by the end of the season (March, April), when they migrate from the lakes to spawn in the winter months. A big-size river, we usually use inflatable rafts to float it and get to its best fisheries. You can choose either daily outings or expeditions that last 2 or 3 days. Its name means "Clear Waters" in Mapuche (tongue pertaining to the Mapuche indians), and you just have to take a look at it to realize why it is called like that.

Pichi Leufu River
Pichi means small in Mapuche, and that is the best way to describe this river. It is ideal for the lovers of ultralight equipment, rods #1, 2, 3, dries and nymphs. It has an important concentration of 2-pound rainbow trout, but there are also resident browns which reach 5 pounds. Fishing them implies an exciting challenge. Located to the east of the Andes, it runs through the Patagonian plain. Mountains have been eroded by the wind for thousands of years, making them look as if it were a sight of the moon. Its waters flow slowly and is rich in hatches. Due to its size, it is impossible to float-fish it. Wade fishing is done every day in private land. We also offer the possibility of making camp.
