Just outside Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile are miles of nearly untouched waters filled with trout. Few outsiders know about this resource and even fewer have fished here. Coyhaique River Lodge owners Gaston and Claudio Urrejola have created the perfect destination for people who want to fish off the beaten path but yet remain comfortable in a nice lodge setting. Having the national park close by this is the perfect destination for active non-fishing companions.
The program offers access to countless small rivers, streams, spring creeks and ultra-fertile lakes and lagoons on twelve private estancias opened only for you. Four anglers per week will fish miles of water in search of unsophisticated brown trout.
Guests will stay in a comfortable estancia-style home in the village of Puerto Bories, Chile, that has been fully renovated and has great views of the Balmaceda peak and the Serrano Glacier outside your window. It has four bedrooms all with attached bathrooms accommodating four guests per week.
Fast action fly rods in 6/7 wt. and weight forward floating lines will handle most situations. A sink-tip line is suggested for streamer fishing in the bigger waters. A complete gear list will be provided with confirmation packages. Contact Frontiers for first-hand tackle and fly recommendations.
Rumbo Patagon is located in a small village minutes away from the commercial airport in Puerto Natales. This Saturday-to-Saturday program will run from the beginning of January to the first week in March. Guests can depart for Chile on Friday evening and arrive into Santiago Saturday morning in time to connect with a flight to Puerto Natales. once there a representative from the lodge will meet you and transfer you 15 minutes to the lodge. Puerto Natales and Torres del Paine National Park beckon active non-fishermen who want to hike, horseback ride and sightsee the many wonders of this area.
