Limay River Lodge

Prolific tailwater trout fishing in Northern Patagonia, Neuquén Province

The Limay River Lodge is uniquely and privately situated downriver from the town of Piedra del Águila on the southern bank of the middle Limay River. Targeting larger-than-average rainbows and browns, along with migratory brown trout, the Limay offers a blend of big-water drift fishing and ample walk and wade opportunities. The Limay River Lodge holds the unique distinction of being the only destination on the south bank strategically located at the prime spot of this tailwater, providing exclusive boat put-ins and access to 10 breathtaking beats.

Fishing

The Limay is Patagonia’s finest tailwater. A freestone-like river featuring gravel flats, braids, riffles, and sheer cliff walls, the Limay is optimally targeted by a fleet of modern drift boats on 10 beats offered by Patagonia Outfitters.

Accommodation

Fully renovated and steps from the river, the lodge blends with the vast surrounding beauty of Patagonia. The courtyard grand fire pit is a focal point and gathering place where fish stories and Malbec abound. Chef Yolvi and his well-versed staff feature Argentine and international fare.

Gear

6 wt. rods with fighting butts and floating lines and 7/8wt. fast-action rods with 250 to 400 sink tip lines in combination. Sun protection, layering systems and rain/wind gear should accompany a waterproof daypack. Traditional “trout trip” packing applies. A full pre-trip is offered upon booking.
