Bordering the east side of the Collón Curá River and both sides of Patagonia Highway 234, Collón Curá Lodge benefits from multiple private access launch points on this sought-after high desert freestone. You will travel from launch to launch in modern drift boats stopping to fish riffles, back channels, and braids along the way daily. The Collón Curá is reminiscent of the Snake River in Wyoming or the lower Henry’s Fork in Idaho, with excellent seasonal hatches, explosive hopper fishing, and big browns just waiting to slam a streamer.
The Collón Curá is a classic freestone river in a low desert climate. Meandering braided channels, long washboard riffles, and deep drop-off pools bordered by willows and high-cut cliff banks offer you big resident browns and spunky rainbows. You’ll drift from point to point and wade periodically.
Location, location, location. Situated just off Highway 234 in Northern Patagonia, Collón Curá Lodge accommodates eight guests in two quaint duplex bungalows. The Lodge offers quick highway access from Bariloche or San Martin making it an ideal multi-lodge combination destination.
Fast-action 5 or 6 wt. rods/line able to punch casts in a breeze and delicately present a dry fly. For streamer fishing, use 6 or 7 wt. rods with intermediate or sinking lines. We provide a full gear list upon booking. Contact Frontiers for first-hand tackle and fly recommendations.
