Carrileufu River Lodge is situated in the middle of a complex network of lakes and rivers located between the snowcapped Andes and the arid steppes of Chubut Province. This area provides anglers with ideal access to some of the best fly fishing in Patagonia. Located on the border of Los Alerces National Park, near the town of Cholila, there is access to both the Carrileufu and Rivadavia Rivers. Los Alerces, founded in 1937, was one of the first national parks in South America and boasts numerous mountain lakes and rivers with wild trout. You will float and wade in gin clear water with strong trout populations. Situated in central Patagonia, about 45 degrees South, this area is known for its beauty and extremely successful trout introduction. From the lodge, you and expert guides will explore the region, stalk large brown trout on crystal-clear spring creeks, float the world-famous Rio Rivadavia, fish the nearby Carrileufu, or even take a three-day wilderness float on the seldom-fished, remote, Rio Chubut.
The lodge was finished in 2014 and is currently managed by Pancho Panzer, a friendly, professional fly fishing guide with an infectious enthusiasm for fly fishing this scenic mountain valley. The new Carrileufu River Lodge was built to make anglers feel comfortable. There are 6 spacious double rooms with queen sized beds for 12 guests. While intimate when you want it to be, there is also a large gathering room offering beautiful views of the Tres Picos Mountains and space for sharing stories from the day.Trip Length: 7 nights, 6 days of guided fishing What’s Included: • All meals and beverages (including alcohol) • 7 nights accommodations • 6-days of guided fishing (2 anglers per guide) • Transportation to/from fishing locations • Transfer to/from Esquel
