Chile Hosted Trip - Magic Waters February 2023

Join our Montana Angler hosted trips with our friends at Magic Waters Patagonia Lodge in Chile.  We have been hosting several trips lately to Magic Waters and it is hard to find a more diverse fishing operation for wild trout anywhere in South America. Explore small spring creeks, big rivers, trophy lakes and more. Each day provides another adventure to new waters. Our hosts Eduardo and Consuelo Barrueto welcome us into their family run lodge where we enjoy amazing Chilean cuisine along the banks of several private lakes full of big trout. We are offering a hosted trip in 2023 in the prime month of February which is mid summer in Patagonia. This time of year in Patagonia and coincides with the peak of some of the best terrestrial dry fly fishing on the planet.
