Chile offers classic Patagonia fly fishing. This safe democratic country offers rich culture and incredible wild trout fisheries. The scenery in Chile is some of the most dramatic in the world with aquarium clear rivers, rugged mountains, expansive glaciers and lush forests. The fishing opportunities offer incredible variety with huge rivers for float fishing, smaller mountain streams for wading, productive spring creeks and gin clear lakes with massive trout. Leave your nymph box at home when visiting Chilean Patagonia because dry flies rule the day. Trout in these remote regions see very little humans and have a strong affinity for the biggest foam dry flies you can throw. Streamer fishing can also be productive and is a great way to target some truly massive brown trout.
Magic Waters Patagonia Lodge offers some of the most diverse fly fishing opportunities in the world. Anglers can fish emerald green mountain rivers in a lush forest one day and small spring creeks in the arid pampas the next. Expect to fish a different water every day of your trip. This region offers spectacular dry fly fishing and the fishing pressure is virtually non existent. Huge attractor beetle patterns, hoppers and mouse patterns rule the day and big browns are common.

Across the border from Esquel, Argentina, and deep into the Coyhue Forest of the Tenth Region of Chile, flows the azure-depth of the Futaleufu River. A world away from the hustle and bustle, the "Big River" rolls along amid some of the most unspoiled mountain scenery on the planet. This giant river grows healthy stocks of Rainbow and Brown trout that are fed by abundant hatches of mayflies, caddis, and stoneflies. A heavy resident stock of fish and great hatches combined with classic fly water make the Futaleufu a trout fisherman's paradise!
