Solely situated 43 miles downriver from the town of Piedra del Aguila on the southern bank of the middle Limay River awaits the Limay River Lodge. Targeting larger than average river rainbows, browns and fall migratory brown trout, the Limay meshes big water drift fishing with ample walk and wade opportunities. In a region of small farming and ranching towns, Limay River Lodge has the unique distinction of being the only destination fishing lodge on the banks of this tail water with exclusive put in access and 10 breathtaking beats.
The Limay’s power has been harnessed for hydro-electric production creating Patagonia’s finest tailwater. A “freestone,” featuring gravel flats, braids, riffles and sheer cliff walls, the Limay is optimally targeted by a fleet of Hyde drift boats on 10 beats offered by Patagonia Outfitters.
Steps from the river bank, the lodge blends with the vast surrounding beauty of Patagonia. The courtyard surrounds a grand fire pit; a focal point and gathering place where fish stories and Malbec abound. In the kitchen, Yolvi and his versed staff feature Argentine and international fare.
6 wt. rods with fighting butts and floating lines and 7/8wt. fast-action rods with 250 to 400 sink tip lines in combination. Sun protection, layering systems and rain/wind gear should accompany a waterproof daypack. Traditional “trout trip” packing applies. A full pre-trip is offered upon booking.
