It’s no secret that Tres Valles Lodge is a must-fish destination in Patagonia. With ingredients like an attentive host couple, eager staff / guides and inexhaustible walk-and-wade fishing in the shadow of the Andes, a receipt for success is inexorable. Situated in a remote corner of Chubut Province near Chile, Tres Valles Lodge is ideal for those fishermen who don’t like to “follow the crowd” and want an intimate, small capacity lodge experience. With an array of non-fishing activities available it is a great choice for those with a non-fishing companion.
Southwestern Chubut Province cradles ample trout water to float, wade and explore. This program keys on mid-sized rivers like the Rio Pico and Pampa; the smaller Rio Nilsen, multiple challenging spring creeks and 4 lakes where monster trout cruise subsurface.
The timber and glass 8-guest lodge features 4-bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, comfortable living rooms and a grand patio. It opens to mesmerizing views of glacier-capped mountains dwarfing the horizon. Dine on fine regional cuisine after a day of exploring this distant Patagonia frontier.
5-6 wt. trout rigs with weight forward floating lines will handle the fishing situations and various water sizes. Corresponding sink tips are ideal for streamers or lakes. A complete gear list is provided with confirmation packages. Contact Frontiers staff for in-depth tackle recommendations.
Fishing season runs December-early May annually.
