The main watersheds are the Simpson and Paloma Rivers, both famous for the finest dry fly fishing in Chile.
Wild brown and rainbow trout are the main species targeted in these rivers, as well as a short, but decent run of King and Coho salmon during the summer months. The salmon are not easily caught on fly, but the runs are significant enough to give the occasional “shot” at one or two on a trip if they are in the river system.
They have private access to rarely fished spring creeks if you enjoy wade fishing. The lodge is also within an hour drive of some temperate rainforest waters where you can sight fish for rising fish or target the aggressive fish with streamers.
Anglers can also float the freestones and navigate the rapids of the Simpson casting to fish with dries or streamers. This region of Chile also has some of the best dry fly, lake fishing in the world for wild browns. The lodge has a couple small “Lagunas” that you can fish after dinner to catch the evening hatch.
The Chile-Patagonia fly fishing season starts in early October, ending the first week of May.
- Early season can provide anglers the opportunity to fish for big migratory, lake run rainbows. This is very good time to swing big streamers and look for big aggressive trophy fish.
- The dry fly fishing and hatches historically start during early November. With longer and warmer days, the hatches become more intense and the fish start to look up.
- Between the hundreds of species of beetles, dragonflies, grasshoppers, caddis, mayflies and stoneflies, the dry fly fishing is pretty steady until April.
- In the Patagonian fall, the weather gets cooler, days are shorter, but the migratory brown trout start to move. There is always a chance to get hooked into one these fish if the weather and water levels cooperate.
