Argentina – Fly Fishing for Trout

Flyfishing Laguna Larga, Argentina for Trout

Laguna Larga lodge is located in the province of Chubut, Argentina in the middle of Los Alerces National Park.  Imagine a pristine, remote setting on the large lake Laguna Larga, that is only 45 minutes away from the city of Esquel.  Los Alerces National Park  is a park of 2,630 square kilometers along the Argentine border with Chile, best known for the alerce (lahuan) trees (Fitzroya cupressoides) from which the park takes its name.  The National Park has the largest alerce forest of Argentina. Alerce is one of the longest-living trees in the world; some in the park are around 3,000 years old, with many of them over 1,000 years.   With the fly fishermen of the world the park is now famous for the a complex lake system and plethora of trout streams. You will be fishing the Rio Rivadavia, Rio Stange, Rio Grande or Futaleufu, Rio Frey, Rio Arrayanes, Arroyo Pescado, and the smaller Nant Y Fall and Desaguader Y Corintos.  Of course, out the front door is Laguna Larga.  We have recently expanded our operation to the Rio Pico.  If you choose to add the Rio Pico to your venue, you will stay at a local bed and breakfast to fish this somewhat remote location.  Expect small water…big trout!
