Jan 6-13, 2024 Esquel Outfitters - Esquel, Argentina. $5500/ person (7nights/6days fishing)
This is one of the top outfitters in Patagonia. I first fished with them in 1998 and they continue to exceed all expectations. The great fishing will begin in Los Alerces National Park where we will float one of 3 great rivers. After a great meal and comfortable night's sleep at El Trebol Lodge we will float the productive and remote/private Rio Chubut for 3 days fishing and 2 nights of comfortable glamping. The dry fly action to browns and rainbows from 12-19 inches is non-stop and the food prepared by the camp staff amazing. After our expedition we go to a 30,000 acre private estancia that gives us over 20 miles of exclusive access to the Rio Guiljaina where again browns and rainbows in the 16-22 inch class love to explode on hoppers. After fishing the Gualjaina we head down to the Rio Pico region to fish for trophy trout www.esqueloutfitters.com
Jan 13-20, 2024 Spring Creek Lodge - Junin, Argentina $5,800 / Person (7 nights/6 full days).
Spring Creek Lodge is in the center of what is arguably the birth place of trout fishing in Patagonia. Famous rivers are all within a one hours drive of this comfortable lodge where each angler will have a single room. The Alunine, Collon Cura, Chimehuin and Malleo are all on the menu. Our week is dragon fly time and the incredible "worm" hatch. These small green worms are eating the willows on the banks of the river and they become candy for hungry trout. This can make for some technical dry fly fishing! Check out www.setflyfishing.com
Jan 20-27, 2024 Casa de Campo Lodge Alumine, Argentina $5,250/person (7nights/6 days)
Casa de Campo Lodge is small and comfortable and provides an "authentic" Argentine experience. A maximum of 8 anglers can stay here and it is within walking distance to the Alumine, one of the best dry fly rivers in Argentina. From here (similar to Spring Creek Lodge) you will have access to the Collon Cura, Chimehuin, and Malleo but its best known for its technical spring creeks and the Alumine which are very close by.
