Chilean Patagonia – Hosted

Chilean Patagonia

Date: March 8-16, 2025
Discover the ultimate fly fishing adventure in Coyhaique, nestled in the heart of Chilean Patagonia’s breathtaking Aysén region. Surrounded by majestic peaks, pristine rivers, and crystal-clear lakes, Coyhaique is a paradise for anglers. Here, you’ll find world-class trout fishing with waters teeming with big browns and ‘bows, as well as the occasional Chinook. Whether you’re casting in the serene Simpson River or exploring the remote lakes, the stunning scenery and abundant wildlife promise an unforgettable experience. Coyhaique’s unspoiled beauty and exhilarating fly fishing opportunities make it a must-visit destination for fishing enthusiasts seeking both adventure and tranquility in one of the world’s most stunning landscapes.
March is an incredible time to be in Coyhaique. We’ll have plenty of dry fly fishing but also the chance to throw streamers at big, mean migratory brown trout that you only see in your dreams. Additionally with lower flows on some of the waters the opportunity for chinook salmon are ever present.
The waters we’ll fish range from small spring creeks in the pampas to larger freestone rivers such as the Simpson, Paloma, or Mañihuales. In addition to the flowing waters we’ll also do a fair share of lake fishing, where anglers often land their biggest fish of the week. Contrary to common perception, lake fishing here is dynamic and challenging, drifting with the wind along the shoreline, actively casting to structure in search of cruising fish.
