Fishing

Located in Coyhaique, we are nearby the big mythical rivers such as the Rio Simpson, Rio Manihuales, a little farther, the Rio Baker or the Rio Cisnes. And among them, some forgotten  jewels , unknown rivers and hidden ponds I shall deliver you the secrets. You will be guided during all week, the fishing day owed approximately 8 hours a day.

According to your wishes, the fishing will be organized in float-tube, in lake or “lagunas” or in wading. Fishing in wading is relatively easy and the diversity of the profiles of rivers allow us to choose spots adapted to your wishes. Rivers with fast streams are to be privileged for the capture of rainbow (size averages of 40cm), others, spring-creeks, drawing meanders, are populated with brown trout of beautiful size. From September until March, huge king salmons can be caught in the pools of Simpson and Manihuales rivers; the biggest catch in the area exceeded 85 lbs.

Big lakes or small ponds are haunted with brown trophy trouts and big arco-iris of 8 pounds and more…Some of this place offer a great full fishing quality with an average of catches around 25 inches. Watching them jumping to eat an un-carefully dragonfly at 3 meters from your float-tube is an unforgettable experience.

Top of the line equipment is kindly furnished by the lodge : a selection of JMC fly-fishing rods and reels and incredible custom hand made rods for spinning. Do not forget your favourite flies and spinners to make your stay a dream…
