Lake Stobel Fishing Trip Report by Bob Thomas

Giant Argentina Trout with Patrick

Angler: Bob Thomas
Date: December 14 – 21
Trip Taken: Strobel Lake Fly Fishing Lodge
Fishing Consultant: Patrick Kissel | Outdoors International

Seven days filled with amazing scenery, incredible fishing, good food and wonderful company. Fishing on Strobel Lake is not for the faint of heart, but catching MANY rainbow trout between 8 and 12 pounds is the adventure of a lifetime.

The largest trout I landed was 16 pounds, but the anticipation in knowing these monsters were close by just added to the experience.

My last day was one of dreams, fishing a fast moving, clear river, climbing boulders and between crevices to make the right cast – being rewarded with several trout around 10 pounds – all providing fun and thrills. The guides were friendly and provided excellent advice, instructions and encouragement on those limited times when the fish gods were not with me.

I would highly recommend the trip. While the trip was physically challenging for me, you should know that I just turned 70.
