The area around Los Alerces National Park and the Rio Pico watershed to the south is an amazing fishing resource. Lakes and rivers, small streams and creeks all teem with trout and flow beneath large Andean peaks. If you believe that ‘variety is the spice of life’- especially when it comes to fishing – then Argentina Waters offers that experience. Float in comfort with the lodge’s drift boats and rafts. This sparsely populated area is visited by anglers looking to get away from the crowds.
Gonzalo and his guide team know this area because they live here and they will customize your fishing experience to your preferences. If you are on the hunt for a personal best fish or want to throw small dry flies at sipping trout a visit to Argentina Waters should be on your radar.
