Uniquely and privately situated 43 miles downriver from the town of Piedra del Águila on the southern bank of the middle Limay River, the Limay River Lodge awaits. 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 tailwater 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 river 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 riverbank, 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 well-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.
Limay River Lodge accommodates all stays ideal for combining with other Patagonia estancias such as San Huberto, Tipiliuke, Quemquemtreu and Arroyo Verde.
