Guests can expect highly experienced guides, great service and a huge variety of fishing options. Martin Pescador has a loyal following of return clients so booking early is a must to get a spot at this great location.

From the three different lodges that make up the Martin Pescador program you can wade and float some of the region's best rivers.

Some of the rivers fished include the Yelcho, Futaleaufu, Palena, Rosselot, Figueroa and Pico.
Lakes and Lagunas
This region of Chile offers some of the world's best trophy trout fishing in incredibly productive lakes. Watching double digit monster trout launch out of the water to intercept dragonflies is not uncommon when fishing the reed beds on these stillwaters. Whether sight casting to huge fish patrolling weed beds or swing for the fences with big streamers these spectacular stillwaters are a great way to add variety to floating and wading the many rivers in the region.
Your guides at Martin Pescador are highly experienced. The progam utilizes both American and local Chilean guides that speak excellent English.
Guests on a week long trip will enjoy the Puerto Cardenas and La Junta lodges which can each accommodate 12 guests in double occupancy rooms. Puerto Cardenas is set along the beautiful Rio Yelcho. Midway through the week you will fish your way to the La Junta lodge where your luggage will be unpacked and waiting. From La Junta guests will target another group of rivers and lakes. For longer trips guests can extend the stay to enjoy the Lago Verde Lodge.
