Ramon Bassols (Barcelona,Spain)
“From the moment we got on board those boats to travel to the lodge we realized we were in a different world”
A limited number of anglers are allowed access to these waters where SALVELINUS guests can fish for trout and salmon in an impressive forested valley with lush vegetation and waterfalls.
The lodge is situated in the center of the valley far from the nearest settlements. Each day is a question of transfer by boat to ideal spots to wade or fishing from boats in different lakes and stillwaters
This is a real fishing adventure, but with all the amenities to help a client relax and feel at home after a hard day´s fishing.
Provisions are brought in by boat because the river is the only supply route available.

“I had a really spectacular time and I hope to fish with all the members of the group again”
The average size of the trout caught varies depending on where you are fishing.
The main river is home to a healthy trout population with sizes ranging from 10 and 12 inches to 28 inches (25-30 cm. to 70 cm). Returning king salmon moving upstream from December to the beginning of March weigh between 30 to 65 pounds.
There are streams where catches of 50 or more 10 to 12 inch trout a day are the norm.
In lagoons, lakes and lake outlets there are healthy populations of rainbows and brown trout between 14 to 24 inches (35-60 cm) and there is a good chance of hooking a 28 incher (70 cm.) during the week.
Fishing conditions are superb because the valley is untouched and uninhabited that is why the waters are teeming with brown trout, and rainbow trout:
Dry fly fishing is by far the approach most used in the summer months. However, if rainfall causes a rise in water level or if the weather becomes very hot, then sink tips and streamers are the combination to use.
“The lodge is miles away from civilization and getting there by boat makes it especially attractive”
“The lodge is miles away from civilization and getting there by boat makes it especially attractive.”
The lodge is situated in an area which is difficult to access; to get there, a thrilling 45 minute jetboat ride through a panorama of forest - covered banks and a river strewn with rapids
The valley is considered to be one of the places with the highest level of natural biodiversity in Patagonia. The area is also - thanks to the difficulty of access – virtually intact.
“My biggest surprise was to find a lodge there with all the amenities you could imagine”
The Lodge is built from locally sourced wood such as the cypress and Pilgerodendron
The fishing operation is equipped with:
The most modern jetboats for an adventure at the end of the world!
The 4 Yamaha powered jetboats used on the main river are equipped with pontoon attachments and can access everywhere on the river.
The Lodge also provides catarafts for more comfortable and efficient fishing.
It is sited on one of the banks of the main river, which teems with salmon as they make their way upstream. There are nearby rivers with thriving trout populations.
