LA PESCA

The Fishing

Fishing in the watersheds around Lago Rosario Lodge is as varied as the landscape itself, with opportunities for everything from delicate presentations of small natural mayfly imitations on spring creeks to dredging the depths and undercut banks of raging rivers with six inch long streamers on sink tips. Our fishing programs are designed to offer a variety of different environments and experiences for each guest during their stay with us here in Patagonia, and depending on weather and current conditions may change slightly throughout the year.

Our team of experienced local guides keeps constantly abreast of what is happening out on the water and are always aware of what is fishing best, and what is producing results on each given stream, river, and lake that we fish. A mix of wading and boating is standard fare, and regardless of what environment we are fishing on a given day the scenery is always guaranteed to be as spectacular as the fishing itself.
