Argentine Patagonia December 2018

Experience some of Patagonia's most beautiful rivers as we make a return trip the central Patagonia region of Argentina to fish with 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 maxamize fishing variety and will be staying at two lodges over the course of the week. Anglers will also have an opportunity to extend the trip to visit Jurassic Lake Lodge for an added 4 nights or a full week at added cost. 

El Ecuentro 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 on the massive 300,000+ acre Estancia Tecka to fish dozens of miles of private float fishing rivers and spring creeks.

Jurrasic Lake optional extension:
Guests that would like to extend the trip can join host Brian McGeehan at Jurrasic Lake Lodge for a 4 night extension at the famous Lago Strobel (aka Jurrasic Lake) to target the world's largest rainbow trout. These massive trout average 10 pounds with a very good chance of landing a 20+ lb trout.
