Fishing in the Pyrenees with Salvelinus
Fishing in Patagonia with Salvelinus
The fishing was fantastic. The installations and meals were magnificent. I caught four of the best rainbows of my life, including the trophy of a lifetime
Guy Schoenborn (Colorado, USA)
The world famous Lake Strobel also known as Jurassic Lake covers 40 square miles (27 000 acre – 10 000 Ha.) and provides excellent conditions for the growth and size of the trout that inhabit its waters. For many, Lake Strobel is the place to fish for the world´s best rainbow trout.
The lodge that SALVELINUS has chosen is on private property. Guests thus have access to some lagoons on the property plus fishing on 5 miles of the River Barrancoso.

Taking into account the wide range of fishing options available fishing is excellent right through the fishing season.
The main destination is Lake Strobel and some six miles of the lake´s shoreline with coves and bays that are completely sheltered from the wind.
The average weight of fish caught is around 6 pounds although it is quite common to catch specimens of between 10 – 12 pounds
Last year in the section of the lake known as the “Bahía de los Monstruos” - and which is on the property - a rainbow weighing 25 pounds was caught. It measured just over four feet or about 50 inches in length. Several 20 pounders were caught and there were quite a few more that weren´t weighed but were about that weight or heavier. It is catches like that that make Lake Strobel so special.
The superb River Barrancoso is the only river that flows into the lake. This beautiful river with its crystal clear waters flows for five miles through the property. The river has stretches of pools, glides and runs. These conditions are ideal for sight fishing
The impounded waters can be fished throughout the season. Wading is the best tactic and anglers often catch trophy fish.
The lodge also offers boats for those who prefer boat fishing
The lodge is located on the banks of a small lake (where the fishing is superb) near Lake Strobel and in one of the most remote areas of Patagonia. The lodge is equipped with
Two wind – driven generators provide the lodge with electricity (220 volts), nevertheless there is a more conventional generator system as a back up if needed.
The cuisine is excellent and meals are accompanied by fine wines from Mendoza, San Juan, Salta y Neuquén, all superb wine growing regions in Argentina.
