Strobel Lake or as some have come to call it, “Jurassic Lake” is one of the most remote, wild and best fishing destinations in the world! It is not uncommon to land multiple double digit rainbow trout a day with some chances at fish in the 20’s. With excellent food and comfortable accommodations this is a trip of a lifetime.

Long exposure in the waves on Strobel Lake.

Fly Fishing Strobel Lake

Strobel Lake looks like saltwater, but it is teaming with small scuds and massive rainbow trout below the surface, and they are caught on a regular basis by our anglers. In fact, on a recent hosted trip, the average fish weighed an astounding 12 pounds…and we caught dozens of them!

The Barrancoso River is a typical mountain freestone river, with clear water and big boulders holding gorgeous trout in its beautiful pools, pocket water, flats and runs. You will also have access to Moro Creek and over 12 smaller lakes and lagoons.

When to Go to Strobel Lake

Come sometime between November through mid-January because the big fish will be stacking up near the mouth of the Barrancoso River. The fishing this time of year can be truly astounding.

Estancia Laguna Verde also offers an excellent cuisine, in charge of its exclusive chef and sous chef. We set ourselves the goal of being ambassadors of the richness of the gastronomic cultural diversity of our immigrant and local history delighting our visitors with typical Argentinean tasty delicacies.

The Fishing Lodge

The lodge is strategically located only a cast away from the fishing and is a typical “Estancia house” accommodating up to 10 anglers per week. It has 7 double bedrooms with comfortable “en suite” bathrooms, provided with hot water.

Get ready for some excellent cuisine, Estancia Laguna Verde employs some of the best chefs from the region preparing the finest meals with local flavors. Shore lunch will be prepared every day at a variety of structures built by the lodge. Hot, delicious meals enjoyed with a beer are a great way to relax for an hour while fishing.

The Guides on Strobel Lake are among the Best.

The guides and staff here are great. They will really do everything they can to make sure your week is special and you get into fish. The guiding is usually done two guests per guide.

When you’ve already caught 6 or 7 huge trout and it’s past the time to go back to the lodge. So you look at your guide to motion if it’s time to go and he says “nah, keep fishing I want you to catch one more.” That’s the sign of a great guide who wants to be there and truly loves his profession. The staff at Strobel Lake works very hard for you and they have a long season. Be sure to tip them appropriately to show your appreciation.

  1. Patrick Kissel

    The southern end of the Patagonia region close to El Calafate is one of the most unforgiving and inhospitable areas I’ve ever visited in my fishing career. Dry, windy, barren and all around tough conditions make it a much uninhabited area with the exception of sheep ranches and GIANT rainbow trout!

  2. Nile Ersland

    I have been on many trips. The lodge was one of the best ever. The guides were fun and involved. Helped in every way. Had very adequate English and enjoyed helping us with Spanish. The Food and and wait staff were very good. Better than most places. Our whole group had one of the times of our lives. Will be back!

  3. Paul Thacker

  4. Micah Ness

    Surrounded with great friends and extremely helpful guides, it was an excellent experience, and one I will never forget. I hope to come back, and share it with my friends and family. I have never caught such large trout in my life.

  5. John Kelley

    Great outfitter, well informed kept me in the loop the entire time, laid out great plans. Was a wonderful outfitter!

  6. Erin Ersland

    This fishing trip was absolutely incredible! I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this trip. The fishing was so good! The lodge has access to a lot of places on the lake so we got to see a bunch of different spots along the lake and river.

  7. Dennis Thacker

    This was the trip of a lifetime. My first trip to a remote lodge so I was unsure what to expect. Needless to say, I could never imagined it could be this awesome. I’ve trout fished since I was a small boy but never dreamed to have fishing like this. I could never imagine how you could bring 8 people together from different walks of life and have such a great time. The lodge, staff, food and guides were all excellent.

  8. Tom Mack

    The trip of a lifetime for me, a true “Bucket List” box to check off.
    Fishing Estancia Laguna Verde with Patrick Kissel from Outdoor adventures was amazing!

  9. Patrick Sauvageau

    I’ll remember most of the fish and all of the staff and fishermen. Our guide Ivan was fabulous, he was very patient, knowledgeable and an excellent photographer. The experience of sight fishing the unbelievable numbers of huge rainbows is beyond compare. I’ll be back!

  10. Bob Thomas

    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.

  11. Zachary Kramer

    The trip was great. The lodge, the guide, the food, the staff – all wonderful.

  12. Denis Isbister

    Great fishing, great lodge, great people, although the weather could have been better. All of the guides were excellent. I hope to go back again. The outfitter has this operation dialed in and was a flawless travel and fishing.
