Fly Fishing in Esquel - Chubut - Patagonia Argentina.
This is the place where you will find Fly Fishing Guides and Outfitters from Patagonia Argentina.
The Esquel area in Patagonia Argentina is one of the most incredible fishing areas in the world, well differentiated because it combines wild diversity and quality of trout.
Fly fishing is the prefered method in this area. Experienced head guide Javier Diez maximizes the potential of the diverse waters in the area and provides an enjoyable experience for the angler.
Located 2000 kilometers (about 1200 miles) southwest of Buenos Aires, Esquel is situated in the northwest corner of the Chubut province, 350 meters above sea level.
Near the Chilean border and framed by the Los Andes Mountain Range, the Esquel area is one of the most beautiful places in the world. A great deal of the surrounding landscape is protected by Los Alerces National Park, conserving the rare flora and fauna.
Lakes and rivers in the park hold a variety of fighting fish, including Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Landlocked Salmon, and Perch. Esquel is a fisherman´s paradise.
Rainbow Trout ( Onchorinchus Mikiss )
Brown Trout ( Salomo Fario )
Brook Trout ( Salvelinus Fontinalis )
Landlocked Salmon ( Salmo Salar Sebago )
Perch ( Percichthis Trucha )
Pejerrey Patagónico ( Basilichthis Microlepidotus )
The fly fishing season opens in November and continues through the end of April. The best months are December and January because the trout feed aggressively and the climate is best, though any month you will enjoy an unforgettable day of fishing.
No matter how long you want to stay with us, we will customize your preferences in order to help you best enjoy your days in Patagonia.
