Estancia Laguna Verde, February 2021


4th - 15th February 2021

Catch the Largest Rainbow Trout of Your Life at Laguna Verde

Hosted by sporting photographers and trip leaders Barry and Cathy Beck, this departure covers the gamut of trophy lake-run rainbow trout opportunities. 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 the miles of private access to the shores of mind-blowing Jurassic Lake, as well as any of the 15 smaller lakes inside the ranch.


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


Laguna Verde: $6,100 per person

Buenos Aires Hotel: TBA
