Luxury Fishing Camp in Patagonia
Rio Blanco Base Camp
This luxury fishing camp in Patagonia offers unspoiled wilderness and miles of untamed trout infested river all to your group of anglers! This is the only outfitter who has access to the 40 plus mile section of the Rio Blanco and its spring creeks. This trip offers you the chance to disconnect from the outside world and be immersed in the beauty of Patagonia with great friends and guides. You will enjoy the adventure this trip offers. Getting to the camp is an adventure all in itself! Most anglers will stay at the lodge and then take a few days to go fish the base camp on the Rio Blanco, or you can do it as your entire trip. It is up to you.
This section of the Rio Blanco is very under fished and few have had the luxury of experiencing the incredible fishing. The river offers endless holding water for large trout. The Rio Blanco is primarily a brown trout fishery with fish averaging 18”-22” but also harbors some good-sized rainbow trout. This river is inaccessible to most due to the dangerous rapids above and below the Base Camp. Our outfitter has exclusive access to this fishery.
Guests stay in double occupancy elevated weather port style tents outfitted with a door and covered porch area for hanging waders and gear. There is a bathhouse with flush toilets and hot running water so guests are able to shower after a day on the water. Electricity is offered via generator and each tent has a space heater should you need it. The camp has a chef on hand that prepares breakfasts, lunches, appetizers and dinners. Local wine is served with each dinner and refreshments are sent along with the day’s lunch. You will be impressed at how well local dishes are prepared and served while in this remote setting.
