This will be our third trip to fish the Limay River. Like many famous rivers, the Limay is temperamental and weather can be fickle, but perhaps that is part of the allure. Like tailwater rivers worldwide, water release can dictate hatches and fish activity. Some days the trout just hammer everything and some days they are spring creek fickle. However, it’s the big strong rainbows and brown trout that keep the Becks coming back.
Six full days fishing the Rio Limay. The Limay River has attracted fishermen to this giant tailwater for years in order catch the large brown trout that can reach double digits in weight. Resident rainbow trout average 16-18” and are known for the drag pulling runs.
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.
Fishing Package: $6,540 per person, based on shared room/guide. Contact Frontiers for additional details.
