Description

$8000 Retail Value

The lodge is located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, in the northern Patagonian Lake district. You will have the opportunity to experience the authenticity of a traditional, working cattle ranch. It will take you back in time, as it is one of the few left of its grandeur that is still operating in Argentina. The ranch is surrounded by the Collón Cura and Caleufu Rivers, two of the top 5 fly fishing rivers of Patagonia and more sought-after rivers of the world.

This private property is comprised of almost 200,000 acres, with rolling hills, a stream that runs through the valley, and a jaw- dropping landscape like none other.

Patagonia, Argentina is considered by most anglers to be one of the world’s finest flyfishing destinations. Trout fishing season runs from early November through the end of April. You will fish the famous Collón Cura River, one of the best mountain waterways for fly- casting and it’s crossed by a stream, which is excellent for dry fly fishing. Due to the vastness of the property, it encompasses almost half of the Collón Cura, providing private access to 19 miles of this beautiful river. The Collón Cura River runs due east toward the Atlantic ocean through the flat steppes of the eastern side of the Andes mountains, lending warmer water conditions, making the Collon Cura one of the most populated trout rivers in the system. The river banks are lined with willows, rosehip bushes and volcanic rock.

The average trout size is 16 inches, and it is not uncommon to catch trout over 22 inches!
