Argentine Patagonia February 2023

Experience some of Patagonia's most beautiful rivers as we make a return trip the central Patagonia region of Argentina to fish with the Montana Angler and the El Encuentro team. This is one of the most impressive fishing programs in Argentina with an amazing variety of water to target. We have customized this itinerary to maximize fishing variety and will be staying at both the home lodge on the Futaleaufu river and the remote Brook Trout Basecamp.

El Encuentro week long program:
While visiting the El Encuentro program based near the Patagonia town of Esquel we will start the trip at the Beale family Estancia and stay at the El Encuentro Lodge where we will target the Futaleufu River, Los Alecerces National Park waters and numerous private water fisheries near the lodge. The second half of the week will be spent at the remote Brook Trout Basecamp along the banks of the Upper Corcovado. The Basecamp offers a safari style tent camp with plumbing, showers, real beds, and a comfortable "lodge tent" gathering area.
