Strobel Lake Fly Fishing is Absolutely Incredible
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, our average fish weighed an astounding 12 pounds…and we caught dozens of them!
In hot spots such as Monsters Bay, Camelot Bay, Finger Bay, Tasmania Bay, Sea Bay, Puesto Bay and Dry Fly Bay fly fishers can do outstanding sight fishing even in the hardest of conditions.
The Strobel Lake fly fishing guides 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.
Imagine this: You’ve had a great day, landing six or seven 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.
The lodge is strategically located only a cast away from the fishing.
It’s a typical Argentina “Estancia house” accommodating up to 10 anglers per week. It has 7 double bedrooms with comfortable “en suite” bathrooms, provided with hot water.
The spacious living room overlooking Laguna Verde is one of the favorite spots in the lodge. Anglers can sip on a cocktail while enjoying the view. There’s satellite TV, WIFI and a room with a fly tying desk and library to enjoy when not fishing.
There is also a newly built changing room / drying facility located just by the entrance door of the lodge to use before and after fishing. All of your fishing gear (such as waders, wading boots, rods, reels, vests, etc) will be ready and dried day after day.
Laundry service is provided twice a week if desired by guests, as well as any other special attention needed or wanted.
The staff at the lodge offers friendly and professional attention to create a cosy and hassle-free atmosphere to guarantee our guests have a truly unforgettable experience.
Get ready for some excellent cuisine.
This Strobel Lake fishing lodge employs some of the best chefs from the region preparing the finest meals with local flavors and excellent Argentina wines.
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 best time to visit this Strobel Lake fly fishing lodge is in the winter.
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.
Strobel Lake is Surrounded by Great Fishing
Some of the most popular lakes are Verde, just in front of the lodge, which offers great fishing for rainbow, brown and brook trout; Texas Lake, too, gives anglers the chance of catching big rainbows and browns wading or from boats.
Others such as Horseshoe, Los Flacos, Chanchos, Ahogados, and Reja, to name a few, also provide fantastic fishing and enable guests to try varied combinations in different programs all along the season.
Fishing the Barrancoso River
When you visit this Strobel Lake fly fishing lodge, you’ll probably get to experience the fishing on the famed Barrancoso River, the one and only tributary of Strobel Lake.
This beautiful freestone river runs for more than 10 km through the Estancia. 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. Its crystal clear water holds an amazing run of huge Rainbow trout.
There are three sections of Barrancoso River: Upper; Middle; and Lower section. Each of those sections has two beats with its own characteristic features, offering outstanding and demanding fly fishing all throughout.
The fishing is mostly done with floating lines, number 6, 7, and 8 weight rods, using streamers, nymphs, big dry flies and mouse patterns.
In addition to Rio Barrancoso, you’ll also have access to Moro Creek and 12 smaller lakes and lagoons.
Amazingly, this great fishery was only recently discovered. Moro Creek is a spring creek-ish stream that chains each of the 12 lakes inside the Estancia.
There are four sections of Moro Creek, as well as the inlets and outlets at the chained lakes. A few of our favorites are Los Flacos, Campamento, Los Chanchos, and La Reja Lake.
This challenging creek flows mainly during spring and early summer, and it has become a favorite in the early season.
