Villa Maria Lodge

Sea run brown trout on the exclusive Lower Rio Grande-Tierra del Fuego

This 6-guest lodge on the lower reaches of the Rio Grande is often sold out annually and for years to come. Frontiers, however, has weeks designated exclusively for our clients. Situated on the Estancia Jose Menendez where the river broadens and pools become long slicks of “trouty” holding water, Villa Maria offers the first shot at fish entering the system fresh from the sea.

Fishing

You will encounter nickel-bright sea-runs on strictly controlled estancia water. This lower stretch appeals to confident casters, and those familiar with two-handed rods do well. Sea-run brown trout fishing is about covering water and reaching the far bank, so come prepared.

Accommodation

Villa Maria Lodge offers six bedrooms and bathrooms for just six guests weekly in a small, intimate venue. Each day, you relish traditional Argentine waterfront meals and siesta at the River House perched high on a bluff affording a stunning view of the fabled Rio Grande.

Gear

8-9 Wt two-handed rods, Skagit Versi-tip lines and various “mow tips” are often favored. Single-handers favor 10-ft. 8 wt. rods and reels spooled with weight forward floating or sink-tip lines for various conditions. A full tackle list is provided upon booking with Frontiers.

Trip Specifics

The season runs January 1 - April 2, 2021. Includes an opportunity for an overnight and Dorado Fishing at Delta Lodge – based on availability. Transfer and single supplements apply. We strongly encourage anglers to book international and particularly internal flights in Argentina with Frontiers. A one-way Ushuaia transfer may apply.
Inquire about preferred dove shooting rates at Cordoba Lodge in conjunction with a sea-run booking exclusively through Frontiers. Weather varies rapidly in Tierra del Fuego; layering is a must and prepare for fluctuations weekly

Rates

Rates and inclusions vary weekly from $5,950-$10,950 per angler on a Friday-Friday rotation. Please contact Frontiers for limited space availability and specific week costs/details.

Rio Grande fishing licenses: $450 per week/angler.
