The Chimehuín was probably the first Patagonian River to become world famous, it put Argentina on the fly fishing map of the world. Fifty (50) miles long, this river has been explored by fly fisherman that nearly every important pool on the river has been given a name. It is a large stream with a moderate gradient. In some sections it braids into several courses and in others it has carved long, deep channels into the valley floor.
Stories of great rainbows and monster browns were told and heard of repeatedly which made the Chimehuín became a legend. Today the Chimehuín offers superb dry and wet fly fishing. It is challenging yet very rewarding. Big browns are regularly caught as well as big surface feeding rainbows.
While fishing this formidable river, we also fish stretches of the smaller Quilquihue River. For those who love dry fly fishing and matching the hatch the Quilquihue is fun to fish. As it connects the prolific Lake Lolog with Chimehuin River across beautiful Rolling Meadows this river sustains very healthy rainbows and brown trout population. It is the ‘right size’ river to wade and cast.
