The Aluminé is not just a river, it is also a symbol and a legend, all kinds of native Indian myths have been conceived around the Aluminé, and even a town is named after it. As it is a very long river it has both character and structure and the fishing possibilities are countless.
The Aluminé is a scenic and prolific river born out of Lake Aluminé. It is a spectacular river flowing through canyon-like valleys that will remind you of the lower section of the Snake River below Wilson, the Jackson Hole area. Surrounded by profuse willow-lined banks and cedar trees the Aluminé actually looks like a giant Malleo River. On its way south, the Aluminé collects the waters of two key rivers, the Quillén and the Malleo Rivers. This, together with the attractive rock formations and the countless great fishing spots makes this River a very special fishery.
The Aluminé is known for its exciting dry-fly fishing under the thousands of overhanging willows by its banks. These willow-lined banks provide shelter and food for the great browns and rainbows of the Aluminé.
One of the interesting features is the abundance of green ‘gusano’ worms falling off the willows during January and February. Fishing green ‘gusano’ worm patterns underneath the willows of the Aluminé River is one of the most challenging and exciting fishing options we have to offer. It will make your blood boil!
The river is scenic, beautiful and prolific. Fishing the Aluminé is one of our favorite options. An experience to remember.
