La Posada de los Farios offers spectacular guided fishing for brown trout and rainbow trout in the heart of Chilean Patagonia. Professional guides and deluxe accommodations make La Posada de los Farios on of the area's premier fishing lodges.

La Posada de los Farios is situated on the
Rio Cisnes (Swan River) with easy access to its tributaries and miles of nearby trout fishing water. The area is famous for its dry fly, streamer and nymph fishing for huge brown trout.
                                                           

                                                           
THE LODGE: La Posada de Los Farios first opened in 1994 on a bank overlooking the picturesque Cisnes and has been a great success ever since. The lodge name, La Posada de los Farios, translates literally to The Inn of the Brown Trout.

The fishing lodge itself can accommodate a maximum of only 6 guests in 3 comfortable guests suites, each with private bath. The lodge's small size ensures plenty of privacy and just the right amount of personal attention. The lodge is extremely well appointed, though we would not describe it as luxurious. However, the serious fishermen will certainly not find anything lacking.

Daily life at La Posada de los Farios is designed around daily guided trout fishing, though no personal comfort is spared on lodge guests. The resident chef, Fernando, serves delicious meals. His dishes are served family style and prepared with a focus on traditional Chilean fare, especially fish, chicken and beef. Fresh vegetables from the lodge's garden compliment Fernando's cooking, as does the lodge's expert selection of Chilean wines. Breakfasts and dinners at La Posada de los Farios generally served according to the daily fishing schedule; lunches are served streamside.

A few short steps from the fishing lodge are several miles of direct river frontage on the Cisnes. This part of the river is relatively large and slow moving, making it easily wadeable and great for after-hours wading. Several tributaries enter the Cisnes within walking distance of the lodge. Several small lakes, loaded with trout, are also easily accessed.

                                                           
The majority of the daily guided trout fishing out of La Posada de los Farios is done wading or floating the Cisnes or exploring its countless tributaries and nearby lagoons. The Parque Nacional Quelat is also a favored resource of Posada's professional fishing guides because of its diversity of unpressured trout fishing waters. Most of these areas are only a short car ride away. The scenery that surrounds the lodge and extends throughout this trout fishing paradise turns these drives into inspiring, sight seeing tours.
                                                           

The best of the river fishing is less than 45 kilos from the lodge's front door. Here guests drift miles of dry fly water, teaming with mayfly activity and, at certain times during the Chilean summer, enormous hoppers. The native browns here feed on these morsels with splashy abandon. An incredible diversity of insect life and proliferation of hatches will challenge and delight even the most experienced angler.

Trout fishing conditions at
La Posada de los Farios range from beginner to expert. Because of their thorough understanding of this fishery, Rex and his guides can ensure that the novice fisherman as well as the seasoned veteran will find challenges and success at La Posada de los Farios. Guests have many options for daily fishing. One might choose to fill his creel with the smaller brown trout which choke the shallower creeks, or to float the deeper stretches of the Cisnes for one of the many trophies that lurk there. The fishery also offers rainbow trout and the occasional king salmon.
                                                           
La Posada de los Farios uses two new boats to drift the Cisnes. Guests usually leave the lodge right after breakfast to enjoy these floats and often return after dark. Guides will anchor the drift boats intermittently to wade the more productive stretches. A packed lunch will be brought aboard to eat beside the stream. Most of the fish in the Cisnes will be caught using streamers and nymphs. There is some very good dry fly fishing during the warmer parts of the summer, though. Rex calls floating the Cisnes, especially its lower stretches, "one of the most scenic fishing floats to be found anywhere in the world." Rex has recently begun to explore these lower stretches, which flow through high granite canyons, and has already spotted some 30+ inch browns lurking there.

La Posada de los Farios is the only lodge in Chile that fishes this part of the Cisnes, and its guests have been rewarded with some enormous and very aggressive trout. An overnight trip can be arranged that offers a chance at fishing the famous Cisnes evening hatch.

                                                           
It should be noted that while other areas of Chile have seen increased fishing pressure in recent years, the areas on which the La Posada de los Farios guides focus have remained relatively quiet. In fact, it is extremely rare to see any other anglers for your entire stay at the lodge.

Chilean Fjords
After several years of extensive research and exploration, Rex Bryngelson is now outfitting organized fishing excursions in the coastal fjords of Chile's Aysen Region. The coastal fishing program is a unique opportunity to fish seldom-fished (let alone seen) rivers and estuaries for trout and salmon. Healthy populations of rainbow trout and salmon can be found cruising in the salt and up the mouths of the coastal streams accessed by Rex and his team of highly skilled an professional guides. 


During the 1998 and 1999 seasons, Rex developed a coastal angling program that was fantastically successful.  Anglers accessed pristine coastal rivers and bays, often taking dozens of 3 - 10 pound fish per day, both in fresh water and in the salt. Generally, subsurface fly patterns were used but, when conditions were suitable, it was not uncommon to take truly large rainbow trout on dry flies.

Anglers will have the option of going to the coast as part of their package at La Posada de los Farios during their stay if the fishing reports from the Fjordlands are good. With all the diversity and different destinations available near La Posada, guests will revel in the choices. Fishermen may also choose to over- night at the coast in a local "hosteria" ( for an additional $150 per night).
                                                           

Another highlight of many trips to La Posada de los Farios is an optional horseback ride to a remote, privately owned lake. Accessing this private fishery involves a spectacular ride through arid country. The lake is full of unsophisticated brown trout that rise eagerly to dry flies. Here, anglers often have the rare opportunity to sight-cast to 20+ inch trout. 

Posada de los Farios uses well maintained 4WD vehicles for transportation. The float fishing is done from a 14-foot self-bailing river raft that is very stable, safe and comfortable to fish from. Zodiacs and float tubes are used to access and fish the diversity of lakes. For fishing the fjords, Rex has a well outfitted 22 foot Panga with cabin that comfortably handles 4 anglers and 2 guides. La Posada de los Farios guides are all experienced oarsmen and expert boat handlers.

Non-angling companions are welcome; La Posada de los Farios offers a variety of non-fishing
activities: Condors, parrots, kingfishers, ibis, woodpeckers, and more offer world class bird watching; a visit to some of the neighboring farms and villages is a fascinating day trip. It is often the most memorable part of a guest's trip to Chile. The local rural people live a lifestyle like one would imagine it to have been like in the western U.S. a century ago; The Cisnes also offers some scenic rafting sections and even some class III and IV rapids; The country around La Posada de los Farios is laced with miles of horse trails which wind through forests and mountain vistas. La Posada de los Farios has a collection of docile animals on hand for guests use.
