Chile Hosted Trip - Patagonia Baker Lodge 2023

Join Montana Angler for our 4th return visit to the Patagonia Baker Lodge in southern Chile. Patagonia Baker Lodge was recently purchased by our friends Eduardo and Consuelo who operate Magic Waters Lodge. They are giving the lodge a full remodel in the offseason and it will reopen with one of the best guide teams in Chile in the fall of 2022. PBL offers some of the most unique wild trout fisheries in the world including the Baker, Cochrane, Maiten, Chocobuco, Lago General Carrera and more. The Baker is Chile's largest river and offers large, hard fighting fish. The traces of glacial flour give the clear waters of the Baker an electric blue look that is like no other on earth. In addition to the Baker guests can wade fish small productive rivers like the Maiten with fast action dry fly fishing, sight cast on clear water lakes, or spot and stalk massive wild trout on the spring creek like Rio Cochrane. With no other established fly fishing lodges in the region anglers will have most of these amazing waters to themselves on this trip. The lodge is located directly on the river with views of rapids and glacier covered peaks from the impressive dining room. PBL is also a great destination to mix in some non fishing activities including hiking to glaciers, sea kayaking, hiking in the National Parks, horse back riding, touring the Marble Caves by boat, etc. Needless to say we can't wait to get back to Patagonia Baker Lodge!!!
