Patagonia is widely known for its browns and rainbows; however the best kept secret may very well be the beautiful and healthy brook trout that populate various Patagonian mountain lakes and the upper stretches of their out-flowing streams.
Lake Rauli is a secluded little mountain lake packed with 2 to 4-pound brook trout and is connected to another beautiful mountain lake: Lake Las Carmenes, by means of a short creek, the Rauli Creek. Lake Las Carmenes is also packed with brook trout and is also secluded.
These two beautiful lakes with their connecting stream are located in the middle of the Andean natural forest. These are pristine lakes, where the landscape is breathtaking including profuse natural forest of beech trees of different kinds, Patagonian cedars, native solid bamboo, and various many other species together with profuse wildlife. These are small mountain lakes and their most outstanding feature is the fact that they are packed with healthy sizable brook trout that will take readily dries, nymphs and sometimes even streamers.
These are hard-to-find unique environments offering the perfect conditions for big healthy strong brook trout to proliferate, where brookies are active and eager to take dries, nymphs and even streamers. A great chance of taking the photo of your life holding a nice big brook trout.
