Estancia Tecka is a rare find; it’s one of the few places in the world where you 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 two lodges, you access the Rio Corcovado, Rio Tecka, and a handful of spring creeks. All offer a perfect blend of walk and wade and drifting opportunities. Tecka’s reputation for excellent attention to detail, food, and fishing has earned the Estancia a loyal clientele.
The Rio Tecka and the Rio Corcovado are the primary rivers in the program. The smaller Tecka is walk and 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.
Tecka offers two ranch home lodges dissecting the fisheries into manageable distances. The Headquarters Lodge features four spacious bedrooms hosting up to eight guests in complete comfort. A bit further into the property, the Caridad Lodge boasts five rooms for 10 guests. Each has en suite bathroom.
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.
Fishing season is November-April annually.
