Patagonia Trout and Salmon Fishing

The Corcovado River comes out of Lake Vintter, a large lake situated on the border between Argentina and Chile.

This region is world known for its trophy sized rainbow, brown and brook trout. Chinook salmon are noted for their size, which can exceed 55 pounds. Females start arriving in October and November and the males arrive in January.

The presence of large salmon gives the Corcovado River a particular allure; one that is complemented by resident trout, which make it a strategic location for fly-fishing.

The area is characterized by the low density of fishermen and the sizeable number of mature fish. This combination makes Corcovado the ideal place to catch extraordinary rainbow, brook, and brown trout, as well as, chinook salmon.
