Route of the spring creeks

Experience the real Southern Patagonia on this route of brook trout creeks fishing several different spring creeks while staying at carefully selected estancias serving up authentic patagonian dishes and wines.

Overview

Spectacular wildlife

This intimate program offers anglers a chance to experience the real Patagonia. During your trip, you’ll stay at three different beautiful, carefully-selected, estancias where you’ll be served authentic cuisine prepared for you by the estancia owners, while fishing small private creeks packed to the brim with trout. This is also an exceptional trip for a wildlife enthusiast as the region is home to spectacular wildlife including guanacos, foxes, hares, and a variety of birds. With a maximum of two anglers per week fishing this program, you’re ensured to fish rested waters all day, every day. 

Fishing

Fishing

Crystal clear waters

You’ll be chasing big brook and brown trout in small crystal-clear creeks. All the waters we visit are private and are fished very rarely. Very little wading is required at this location and the fish are extremely sensitive to noise and movement. The key to success on most of these creeks is to have a very quiet approach where you remain as stealthy as possible. Fishing is accomplished using light gear and rods in the 3-5 wt. range. On a typical day you can expect to land over 20 fish up to 7 lbs in size, though the ultimate number you land is entirely up to you!

Accommodation

Accommodation

A taste of Southern Patagonia

At this program, you’ll stay in private estates where you’ll experience local culture, traditions, and Patagonian hospitality first-hand. Private or shared rooms are available at each location. All meals are prepared with an earth-to-table mentality, traditional recipes, and local products, such as garden-grown vegetables and locally-made jams. Lamb and steaks are prepared the gaucho way and all meals provide you with an opportunity to experience authentic recipes and techniques that go back generations.

Tackle & Technique

Tackle & Technique

Light tackle and minimal wading

We recommend bringing a 4 wt. rod, which will cover your fishing in each of the creeks. Floating shooting head lines are usually the most effective, however, there are some conditions and pools which require using sinking polyleaders and/or weighted flies that will help you target big fish in deeper water. At times, casting will require some precision as certain sections of the creeks are rather narrow and the fish sit high in the water near the creek’s edge. We suggest bringing a selection of dry flies such as Chernobyl ants, small mouse patterns, and elk caddies; nymphs like hare’s ear, copper john, and stoneflies can also be highly effective for selective fish. However, the most important flies for you to bring are black streamers in various shapes and sizes, such as woolly buggers and zonkers with bead heads that are effective in almost all of these creeks and conditions.
