Estancia Laguna Verde, February 2020


6th - 18th February 2020

Catch the Largest Rainbow Trout of Your Life at Laguna Verde

This departure covers the gamut of trophy lake-run rainbow trout opportunities hosted by sporting photographers and trip leaders, Cathy and Barry Beck. Prepare to stalk New Zealand-style on the Barancoso River for giant rainbows fresh from the lake.


Seven nights/six days of lake fishing for giant rainbow trout at Laguna Verde. You have the opportunity to fish any of the 15 smaller lakes inside the ranch, as well as the miles of private access to the shores of Jurassic Lake – mind-blowing.


Laguna Verde sits upon an estancia bordering the fabled Lake Strobel. Ten single occupancy bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and exceptional dining provide exceptional comfort in this remote part of Patagonia.


Laguna Verde: $5,900 per person. Buenos Aires Hotel: TBA.

Trip Specifics

Commonly referred to as “Jurassic Lake,” Lake Strobel is in the southern-most mainland province of Santa Cruz in the furthest southern reaches of Argentine Patagonia.

NOTE: Newly constructed bedrooms at Laguna Verde allow for guests to have single rooms.

The group will assemble in Buenos Aires the evening of February 7 and overnight.
