LIMAY RIVER

THE FISHING

Probably the richest fishing resource in Northern Patagonia, the Lower Limay River offers unique fly-fishing opportunities for the international angler.
This is an outstanding tail-water fishery that flows out of Pichi Picun Leufu Dam guaranteeing consistent flow, temperature, clarity and cleanness at all times. The Lower Limay River runs eighty (80) km along the semi-arid Patagonian high steppe into the huge fertile lake formed by El Chocon Dam. These are features that make the Lower Limay extremely unique;
– The fact that it is a tail water fishery ensures profuse underwater life of all sorts and a variety of daily hatches generating ideal conditions for super healthy populations of resident strong brown and rainbow trout that will take dries on the surface like there is no tomorrow.
– The fact that it flows into a gigantic fertile lake makes for the possibility of hunting enormous migratory brown trout that will swim up the river during the season.
These make for a unique combination of action and excitement. You can fish dries on the surface all day long and/or you can dredge the bottom with fast heavy sinking heads and large weighted streamers if hunting huge fish is your focus. Large browns and turbo charged rainbows in the 20 to 24-inch range, big game fly fishing for the monster brown of your lifetime.
The Lower Limay River is a huge body of water with numerous channels offering some of the most challenging and rewarding fly-fishing experiences in Patagonia, the best fly fishing resource in the entire region of Patagonia.
