Martin Pescador Lodge

Unmatched trout diversity in one visit; unparallelled beauty of Chilean Patagoni

Frans and Anna Jansen’s Martin Pescador Lodge is home to two distinctive lodges—Puerto Cardenas and La Junta. They offer 16 rivers and eight lakes in a trout crammed week in central Chile. Not enough? The Coastal and Lago Verde Program further broadens your fishing exposure in the picturesque Chilean environs. Attracted originally to the fishing, Martin Pescador Lodge’s many repeat guests now return both for the love of Chile and the lodge’s exceptional hospitality. Few lodges worldwide can compete with this fishing and environmental diversity.

Fishing

Frans and his six guides bring new conquests in familiar rivers rich with browns, rainbows, and anadromous quarry. Martin Pescador Lodge offers river and lake fishing from a raft or boat with occasional wade opportunities and high-country Argo adventures to maximize your experience.

Accommodation

Chef Anna provides sumptuous meals, and her staff makes each lodge feel like home. You spend three nights in the Yelcho riverside lodge near Puerto Cardenas. While you fish on day 4, staff transfers your gear and personal belongings to the La Junta Lodge overlooking the Rio Rosselot.
