Estancia Laguna Verde lodge
Month: March 2015
Date: March 1st to 31st 2015
Report: Martin Robino (Head guide)
March showed a great improvement in weather and provided excellent fishing throughout the month. Temperaturates were in general warm, and wind was much more gentle than the last week of January. Many sunny and warm days provided with excellent action on top and fish were active, cruising and feeding close to shore.
Top 5 Places:
- SEA BAY
- PUESTO SAND BEACH
- DRY FLY BAY CLIFFS
- EL PUESTO CLIFFS
- TASMANIA BAY
Top 5 Flies:
1 BH Prince nymph (8, 10, 12, 14) (with and without White rubber legs)
2 BH Olive or black Leech (8, 10)
3 Cooper John (size 10 and 12 cooper/chartreusse)
4 Olive scud (10, 12, 14)
5 Fat Albert (tan bottom, brown upper foam layers, 8, 10)
Fishing was very good in most of the month of march, except last week of March, with strong winds and cold front coming, going into April. In general, afternoons had more action than mornings, with several remarkable fish over 15 and 20 pounds, with a best of 24 pounds caught by angler Ross N., and a total of 9 fish of 20 or more pounds caught during march
Running clear and low, first part of the month, and by mid March, increasing it´s level with rain and snow in the upper plateu and mountains, with a great start of the autumm run. Very nice to fish it in upper, mid and lower section, with River walk program providing great fishing (walking mid to low sections).
Best catches were 16 and 15,8 pounders caught by Rob. M. and Keith E.
Fishing good in front of the lodge, and to Hidden bay (west side).
A new favorite among visiting anglers. Close to the lodge, and with excellent fishing, many anglers like to fish that lake several days a week, with lighter rods, and working close to shore, slow striping small streamers, scuds, and big dries close to rocks in the shore, where those fish in most cases feed on scuds.
Great action and fantastic catches up to 11 pounds. A great addition for this season! A new favorite by may repeat guests.
