Estancia Tecka

Diverse trout fishing on one of the largest uninterrupted Patagonia estancias

Estancia Tecka is a rare find; it’s one of the few places in the world where an angler can fish all day and never see another soul. This 435,000-acre ranch has such a vast holding of private water it would take years to fish it all. From 2 lodges, fishermen access the Rio Corcovado, Rio Tecka, and a handful of spring creeks. All offer a perfect blend of walk-n-wade and drifting opportunities. Tecka’s reputation for excellent attention to detail, food and fishing has earned the Estancia a loyal clientele.

Fishing

The Rio Tecka and the Rio Corcovado are the primary rivers in the program. The smaller Tecka is walk-n-wade featuring “s” curves and undercuts prime with browns and rainbows. The Rio Corcovado is a broad gin-clear band accessed via drift boat with a dense fish population and ample hatches.

Accommodation

Tecka offers 2 ranch home lodges dissecting the fisheries into manageable distances. The Headquarters Lodge features 4 spacious bedrooms hosting up to 8 guests in complete comfort. A bit further into the property the Caridad Lodge boasts 5 rooms for 10 guests. Each has an en-suite bathroom.

Gear

5 and 6 wt. trout rigs with weight forward floating lines will handle fishing situations and various water sizes. Corresponding sink tips are ideal for streamers or higher water. A full gear list is provided with confirmation packages. Contact Frontiers for in-depth tackle recommendations.
