It’s no secret that Tres Valles Lodge is a must-fish destination in Patagonia. With ingredients like an attentive host couple, eager staff and guides, and inexhaustible walk-and-wade fishing in the shadow of the Andes, its recipe for success is inexorable. Situated in a remote corner of Chubut Province near Chile, Tres Valles Lodge is ideal for those who don’t like to “follow the crowd” and instead want an intimate, small capacity lodge experience. With an array of alternative activities available, it’s also a great choice for those with a nonfishing companion.
Southwestern Chubut Province cradles ample trout water to float, wade, and explore. This program keys on mid-size rivers like the Rio Pico and Pampa, the smaller Rio Nilsen, multiple challenging spring creeks, and four lakes where monster trout cruise subsurface.
The timber and glass eight-guest lodge features four bedrooms with en suite bathroom, comfortable living rooms, and a grand patio opening to mesmerizing views of glacier-capped mountains dwarfing the horizon. Dine on fine regional cuisine after a day of exploring this distant Patagonia frontier.
5-6 wt. trout rigs with weight forward floating lines will handle the fishing situations and various water sizes. Corresponding sink tips are ideal for streamers or lakes. A complete gear list is provided with confirmation packages. Contact Frontiers staff for in-depth tackle recommendations.
Fishing season runs December-early May annually.
