This aristocratic estancia nestled between Bariloche and San Martin is renowned for elegant old-world accommodations and hospitality. Coursing through the moonscaped canyon, the crystal-clear Traful River teems with large brown and rainbow trout sipping insects from the glassy surface. These fish originate from both river and lake.
A crystal-clear mid-sized freestone, the Traful courses from Lago Traful to the Limay River. The river presents large local rainbows and browns, migratory trout, and landlocked salmon. Prolific hatches and ample terrestrials make this stream ideal for New Zealand-type stalk fishing for trophy trout.
This grand wood and stone house with elegant out-buildings is perched in a meadow gazing downvalley. It accommodates up to 10 guests in cozy rooms with a European flair. Manicured gardens, festive Asados, and sun-drenched common areas coax fishers and non-fishers alike.
Traditional trout 5 and 6 weight rods/reels are ideal. For heavier streamer fishing, 7 to 8 weight rods with intermediate or sinking lines can enhance success. A complete gear list is provided with confirmation package. Contact Frontiers for first-hand tackle and fly recommendations.
