The fishing? It’s hard to imagine there can be any better fishing anywhere in the world.” Read customer testimonials
We’d like to take the opportunity to explain how we operate our unique fishing program at Patagonia River Ranch.
The typical guest stay is 6 days/ 7 nights, arriving and departing on Saturdays. You will unpack your bags one time, then settle in and enjoy the ranch and the casually elegant guest lodge.
You will have the opportunity to fish up to 6 different rivers during your 6-day stay, then return to the ranch at the end of each day. Our central location on the banks of the Rio Chimehuin gives us easy access to all of the famous rivers of Northern Patagonia, which includes: the Chimehuin, Caleufu, Collon Cura, Alumine, Malleo, Quemquemtreu and the Quilquihue. Furthermore, whatever the conditions, we have the flexibility, equipment and experience to put you on the rivers that are fishing best during your visit. From a trout fishing standpoint, it’s difficult to imagine a more ideal location for offering an amazing and diverse fishing experience.
Our 9-person, all-Argentine guide staff are all professional guides who work exclusively for us. They’ve grown up fishing the native waters and know these rivers intimately. They all speak excellent English and are experienced fly fishing instructors. This means that if you’re a beginner, your guide will teach you to enjoy the sport and art of fly fishing, while catching fish at the same time. For more advanced anglers, you’ll get pointers on how to read the gin-clear rivers and catch more (and bigger!) fish. And a word about our German Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout… these are super strong fish. Once you hook into your first trout, you’ll see what we mean!
We are proud to provide top quality boats, trucks, trailers, tackle and other essentials that make executing our diverse fishing program easy and comfortable for our guests. We offer both float fishing and wade fishing, though for the most successful wading, the boats are used to reach places that would be impossible to access otherwise. All fishing gear is included in the standard rate.
A few other key things to know… we pride ourselves on offering an exclusive experience, as there won’t be other fishing guides or outfitters bringing their clients to PRR. And since we have a strong desire to preserve the experience at the highest possible level, we limit the number of guests each week to maximum of 18.
We invite you to come fish with us this season and enjoy the magic of PRR!
