Fly Fish Chile's Patagonia Trout Waters

Fly fish some of the world's best trout waters in the midst of the Patagonian Andes. The Paloma Lodge is situated near the banks of the Paloma River, which flows through a deep glacial valley about two hours drive from Coyhaique, Chile. While remote, the lodge provides gracious and comfortable accommodations. Carlos Munoz is a trained chef and former restaurant owner. You can be certain to experience a wide range of Chilean dishes. Chile is known for its beef and seafood's. A week at the lodge can even include Chilean salmon.

Being native of the region, Carlos thoroughly knows the fishing waters. He is probably the very first local Chilean to fly fish the waters of the region. He and his experienced guides can introduce you to trophy trout fishing as your needs and interests desire. You can fish a variety of ways: wading, float tubing, floating rivers in McKenzie Drift Boats, or reaching hard to get to areas by jet boat. Carlos is the first to use these kinds of boats for fly fishing in the region.

Come fish with us at Paloma Lodge.
