The only helicopter fly-out trout fishery in South America, Lakutaia Lodge fishes the southernmost rivers of Chilean Patagonia in the UNESCO Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve on remote Navarino Island. This intact adventure includes an overnight in Punta Arenas at the historic Hotel Jose Nogueira, round-trip lodge charter, and fly-out fishing in one of the world’s most unique corners.
Fish Navarino Island’s rivers, lakes, and bocas for native brook, brown, rainbow, and sea run trout. Using predominantly floating lines and wet flies, strikes are as hard and visual as the fish are magnificently colored.
Lakutaia Lodge features 22 comfortable rooms with en suite bathroom nestled among the indigenous flora and fauna of this southernmost wilderness region. International and regional cuisine embrace local seafood and sought-after Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
6 wt. rods w/ fighting butts and floating lines; and 7/8wt. fast-action rods with 250-400 sink tip lines in combination. Coastal Chile mandates layering systems, proven rain gear and waterproof daypack daily as weather changes often. A full pre-trip is offered upon booking.
