This program offers fishing in three different rivers, all with different scenery and structure. The main sections of the Rubens river and Penitente river, both tributaries to the larger Rio Gallegos which is one the best sea-run brown trout rivers on the planet, are perfect to cover with a single hand rod where anglers will use several different methods such as swinging flies, casting into pockets, and strip streamers. These rivers are similar in structure to many sections of the Rio Gallegos, only smaller, making most pools easy to cover. The upper part of Rubens is surrounded by Lenga trees and when walking those banks it’s easy to think you are fishing in a tropical jungle somewhere. Fish here are generally not as big as further down the river but water and surroundings are stunning.
Anglers will also fish the upper part of Rio Gallegos which has some amazing brown trout fishing. The upper sections of Rio Gallegos have plenty of varying structure with weed beds, rocks, back waters and more. The lower part of this stretch of Rio Gallegos, from where rio Turbio connects, looks more like a traditional southern Patagonian sea trout river with cut banks and gravel banks on each side. For those wanting to try these sections a light spey rod will come in handy.
With all this water on offer and the varying structures and landscapes, anglers will not only get a chance to practice several types of fishing and techniques for trout, but they will also experience one of the most iconic estancias in the Santa Cruz province well as some of the most beautiful landscapes southern Patagonia has to offer. All in one program.
