Fishing Chile

Trout fishing in Chile used to suffer from limited infrastructure and inconsistent outfitting. All that has dramatically changed over the past decade. Today, the selection of trout fishing lodges and locations in Patagonia Chile is almost as varied as New Zealand.

The best fly fishing lodges in Chile presently exist in approximately a 100-mile radius of Coyhaique, which is serviced by the airport in Balmaceda, a 2-hour flight south of Santiago. We represent a wonderful collection of outfitters in Chilean Patagonia, including El Saltamontes, Spanish for "The Grasshoppers," an idyllic, private ranch with outstanding dry fly fishing on the Nireguao River; Posada de los Farios, a small, intimate lodge fishing the lower Cisnes River, which offers optional fishing trips to the coastal fjords of Chile for big sea run rainbow trout and salmon.

Yan Kee Way Lodge
is an exquisite facility within easy driving distance of Puerto Montt. The lodge is located in Chile's lake district, on Lago Llanquihue. This area offers fishermen a variety of water to explore, from casting dry flies on small streams to fishing sinking lines in the lake for Salmon or large trout. Yan Kee Way's sister lodge, El Patagon, is located in a more remote setting and offers access the spectacular and unpressured trout water of the Figueroa River as well as the Rio and Lago Rosselat.

Experienced, energetic fly fishing guides from Montana and Chile, a strategic location, and a magnificent new lodge gives
Cinco Rios Lodge it's reputation of a top Coyhaique fly fishing
lodge. So does their access to more potent trout streams than most lodges in Chile, including the Paloma, Azul, Magote, Blanco, Simpson, Deseques, Pica Fina, Nireguao and Manihaules Rivers.

Estancia del Zorro, the sister lodge to Cinco Rios, is located on a private ranch near the Chile - Argentina border. In addition to a productive spring creek on the ranch, which holds brown trout to 30 inches, Estancia del Zorro guests enjoy trout fishing Patagonia on a variety of small creeks and streams loaded with smaller brown and rainbow trout.
Paloma River Lodge, located in the beautiful Paloma River Valley, offers opportunities for big brown and rainbow trout on the dry fly. The fishing area starts 200 yards from the front door on the Paloma River and extends over a diverse watershed. To access the trout fishing, the lodge uses horses, four-wheel-drive vehicles, jet-powered skiffs, and rafts, allowing each angler to customize his fishing experience. Paloma River Lodge offers private rooms, and accommodates only 6 anglers per week.

Heart of Patagonia Lodge is a beautiful, intimate lodge located on Rio Aysen. The lodge focuses its fishing program on the renowned Rio Simpson and sets its fishing schedule around the river's dependable evening hatches. Heart of Patagonia also has fishing access to most of the rivers fished by Cinco Rios, to complement the trout fishing on the Simpson.

Futa Lodge, located on Chile's Futaleufu River, is a delightful, small, authentic Chilean lodge set in Southern Chile's countryside. Futa Lodge primarily fishes the Futaleufu River for native brown trout, rainbow trout, and the occasional sea run trout, but also offers excellent trout fishing on some smaller nearby rivers and lakes.

Nomads of the Seas
is an exciting new operation, providing exploratory fishing trips into the wild coastline of Chilean Patagonia. A new, custom-built mothership, complete with heli-pad and a fleet of jet boats, takes up to 18 anglers and 10 non-anglers into previously un-fished waters of coastal Chile. Anglers stay in super deluxe accommodations and target brown trout, rainbow trout and landlocked salmon. The Nomads fishing program allows guests to fly fish previously inaccessible trout water in Chile and to do so in extreme comfort.
